Can't install extension on Openoffice: License agreement breaks it


When I try to install this extension in OpenOffice, I'm asked to read (and scroll through) the "Extension Software License Agreement" and accept it - but there are no buttons and no scroll bars. I tried clicking all over in case it was just invisible, but no luck.

If I close the window, installation doesn't proceed. Any ideas? I'm on Mandriva 2009.0, but thinking of trying out Debian.

Which version of OOo do you have? The extension seems to require OOo v3.0 beta 2. You may also find this helpful http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=94784

I'm using OOo v3, same as knudfl.

Maybe it's a Java thing. Was putting off installing Java as I was planning to switch distros, but will try it out now.

I was distracted by the fact that it didn't let me accept the agreement, and didn't notice that it had successfully installed. (I didn't notice it till I ran soffice and the extension manager as root, but I think it was already installed.)

Sorry about that - hope this is helpful to someone else, though.
