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.
One more point: I'm presently converting the Base chapters that I
have written to the ePUB format. I tried the LO extension with poor
results. Calibre worked better as I stated. So, my process is to let
Calibre do the conversion. Then I use Sigil, an ePUB editor, to clean up
the XML in ePUB. Even then it is time consuming at times to match the
the appearance in ePUB to match the appearance of the .odt file.
