Hi everybody,
At the risk of getting on people's nerves...
I have been trying on and off to download and install the native mysql-connector for LO-3.5
from the extensions site. I run Linux-Mint 12 (Lisa) as well as Debian-Wheezy.

Whenever I try to activate it, I get the message  loading component library failed
This file is of course present in exactly that directory and it always is the version
just downloaded a minute before. I have played around with less restricive permissions of, but that didn't help. Any idea of what might be wrong?

Hi :)

it is not mine.  I think Alex did the ones for Mac and Gnu&Linux but we still need someone to do 
one for Windows and possibly Bsd.  I think the Bsd people have their own wiki-system.  Somewhere in 
this mailing is a recent link to a Vista-only connector but i am not sure many people are still using 
Vista.  Didn't people upgrade back to Xp or on to 7 now?

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

The MySql connector should work exactly the same for MariaDb as the code is almost identical with 
perhaps a few new features and plenty of bug-patches.

Thanks Tom!!

Where do I get _YOUR_ connector and how do I use it??
