Macro - python¶
On linux, the sample files can be found in:
OpenOffice will have created a
~/.openoffice.orgfolder for you. This folder will contains a
Scriptsfolder. We need to create a
pythonfolder inside it for our scripts:
cd ~/.openoffice.org/3/user/Scripts/ mkdir python
To get started, make a copy of one of the sample scripts e.g:
cd ~/.openoffice.org/3/user/Scripts/python/ cp /usr/lib/openoffice/basis3.1/share/Scripts/python/HelloWorld.py .
To check the script is working, re-start OpenOffice and select Tools, Macros, Organise Macros, Python, My Macros.
Inside the My Macros section you should see the
HelloWorldscript containing the
HelloWorldPythonand click Run.
