I tried this extension, and while I had no problems using it with my installation of LibreOffice, which was expected based on the fact that the OP states "allows the integration of your Google Contact address book in LibreOffice."
The extension is listed in the OpenOffice extensions section, and part of the name implies that it should work with OpenOffice. I did not find this to be the case.

Unfortunately gContactOOo does not work under OpenOffice, but I am ready to make changes if I find help ...

Hi,

When trying to run this extension under OpenOffice, I am stuck in Writer 4.1.3 on the menu:
Files -> Wizards -> Data source addresses -> Thunderbird -> Next
I have the following error message:
A connection to the external data source could not be established. No SDBC driver was found for the specified URL.

After a little research on the web I come across this issue:
Issue 124987 - Configuring address books fails with "SDBC driver for URL not found" https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=124987

Can someone confirm to me that the Thunderbird address book driver has been removed.

Thanks in advance.
