[Solved] LibreOffice 5 / Python Macros = failure #NAME?

Postby LinuksGuru » Wed Aug 19, 2015 2:52 pm

Hi,

I have OpenSUSE 13.2 x64, and today I updated LibreOffice to version 5.
Unfortunately, all python Macros stopped working (#NAME? error everywhere).

LibreOffice 5 uses one of these config dirs (depending upon build, either from LibreOffice.org either from SuSE factory) for storing Macros:
~user/.config/libreoffice/4
or
~user/.config/libreoffice/4-suse

All python Macros are here, and were working with LibreOffice 4.x just prior upgrade to v5.
Security setting are the same as before, allowing execution of macros.
Tools -> Organize -> macros -> Python Macros - still lists all of them.

Anyone have any idea what went wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Finally I have solved this problem.
For whatever reason (I think its a bug or glitch), new LibreOffice 5.x on first start simply overwrites XML config file script.xlb, it need to be re-created manually or from backup.
