Here are some points you should check if you have problems of connection between oOo and bibus

  1. Under linux, check that you have installed the OOo from your distro, not the one from otherwise there may a mismatch between the library and your python version.
  2. The oOo installation path is specified in a configuration file. You should check it is correct (under Linux, if you have several versions, you should specified the path of your distro version)
    • Windows XP or Vista: (the oOo path change when upgrading oOo from 2.0 to 2.1, from 2.1 to 2.2...)
      • file location: c:\program files\bibus\bibus.cfg
      • oOo default path: oopath=C:\Program Files\ 2.*\program
    • Ubuntu:
      • file location: /usr/share/bibus/bibus.cfg
      • oOo default path: oopath = /usr/lib/openoffice/program
    • Debian
      • file location: /usr/share/bibus/bibus.cfg
      • /usr/lib/openoffice/program
    • Fedora:
      • file location: your installation path (/usr/local/bibus/bibus.cfg ?)
      • oOo default path: /usr/lib/
    • Mandriva:
      • file location: your installation path (/usr/share/bibus/bibus.cfg)
      • OOo default path: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/
    • Suse:
      • file location: your installation path (/usr/local/bibus/bibus.cfg or /usr/local/share/bibus/bibus.cfg)
      • oOo default path: /usr/lib/ooo-2.0/program or /usr/lib64/ooo-2.0/program (opensuse 10.3)
    • openSuSE 11.0:
      • You may also need to correct the environment variables LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PYTHONPATH in /usr/local/share/bibus/Setup/ if you use that as the mechanism to start bibus.
  3. Under Linux, make sure python-uno is installed
    • Debian/Ubuntu
      • sudo apt-get install python-uno
