This is my first effort at using Write2epub.
Does it just output the one file for you?

All I did was test it for conversion.  It worked spring of last year, 
and maybe summer as well.  I was looking at e-reader software for Ubuntu 
and tested LO with it and the result with the packages.  So I do not 
remember much from back then - due to my memory issues from 3 strokes.  
But it worked back then or it would not have been included with the rest 
of the extensions on my DVD/portal pages.

I just installed the extensions and used it.

I got a file with the same name as the original ".odt" but with the 
".epub" extension.  Since I do not have any e-reader installed at this 
time, I was not able to test the file out.

So for me to test it again, I will have to find a Ubuntu 10.04 epub 
reader package.  Will see about doing that after I finish my dictionary 
work, which is after a current work that takes top-priority over 
everything else for the time I have on my computer [less time every day 
due to pain from my debilitating injuries that seems to be worse every 
day.  Got a MRI scheduled on Monday which was really quick for my doctor 
ordered yesterday.] .  BUT, I will finish the dictionaries this month - 
which it my plan anyways.

     Perhaps this extension works best with converting simple documents.
I have found that  Calibre does a decent job of the conversion, but even
that is not close to matching the layout. For that I have used Sigil to
edit the XML that is the basis for ePUB documents.
     I saw a post somewhere that someone has a template that will work
with LO to make the conversion from .odt to .epub. It carries a $67
price tag. I don't know if it works or not.
     My system: Ubuntu 11.10 (32 bit) using Gnome Classic.
