I am also among the crowd "hankering" after a native MySQL/MariaDB-
connector in LO. I run LO both under Windows/Vista, Debian-Wheezy (testing!)
and Linux-Mint-12 (Lisa).
Debian: LO 3.5-rc3
Mint:   LO 3.5-rc3
Vista:  LO 3.3.3
The native connector works ONLY on Windows-Vista (quite flawlessly, actually).
For quite some time I have been following the "story" about the Linux
versions of the connector - without success. Trying to download it from the
LO extensions internet site and then to install it using the extension manager
I keep getting an error message
(Loading component library failed. ..../

Hi :)
There is not one for Windows yet.  It would need to be built.  The ones for Mac and Gnu&LInux are 

No-one with Windows has built and uploaded their one yet.  I think there are instructions on how to 
compile it from Source but i gather you have to compile the whole of the LibreOffice from Source at 
the same time.  I odn't know where to begin with that sort of thing and the only Windows i have 
access to is at work where i don't really have time to do things like this (even if i knew how to 
which i don't).Regards from

I hope MySQL isn't OT. I am trying to set up a MySQL database with LibreOffice

downloaded the MySQL ODBC Connector but when I try to run it I get a
window for about 1ms and then it vanishes. Has anyone succeded in installing

     LO has an extension: "MySQL Native Connector".  From what I have
read on this list, this extension works better than using an ODBC or
JDBC. You might want to download and install it instead.
