Efofex extension

Postby EnCee » Mon Oct 22, 2012 12:16 pm

Has anyone had experience of downloading and adding the extension for OpenOffice from Efofex? I have successfully (apparently) downloaded the extension from Efofex but when, subsequently, I open an OpenOffice text document I do not see the icons for Efofex applications that I would expect to find in the toolbar.

A quick inspection of their site did not reveal anything targetted for OpenOffice. Please give a URL for the extension in question. Their main target sees to be MS Office.

Nothing since 2004 as far as I can see:

Correction. There's an FX MathPack - OpenOffice Integration Pack here:

but it's an .exe and I'm in Linux as usual.

Thanks, Robert. I'm also in Linux. Will try on a Windows machine later, but off to a meeting now.

Dreams are free. And you are barking up the wrong tree since efofex is closed source.
OpenOffice is a dying project anyway. Install https://libreoffice.org/ instead and try if that cousin of OpenOffice can handle the efofex plugin.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.
