Thanks for the tip.  However, I usually just use the command line
applications apt-get, dpkg and apt-cache.  This isn't a package manager or
operator error, from what I can tell.  There appears to be a lack of Python
Uno support for Python 2.7 on Ubuntu 13.10.  I'm trying to figure out how
to add such support to the existing packages, if possible.  Or secondarily
finding a different set of Ubuntu packages which do include this support.

There is a python3-uno, but it doesn't help me, since Appy POD does not yet
support Python 3.  The package was called python-uno on previous Ubuntu
versions, but now its marked as deprecated and attempting to install it
indicates that the libreoffice-script-provider-python replaces it.
 Installing this does not provide Python uno support though and from the
package description it doesn't sound like that is what its for: "Python
script support provider for LibreOffice scripting framework".

Does anyone know if Python uno support depends on the libreoffice binaries?
 If Ubuntu 13.10 did indeed drop Python uno support for 2.7, do I have to
find another source for the libreoffice binaries to get this to work?

Best regards,

Element Green

 You probably need to install Synaptic. I do not it is installed by

I believe the command in terminal is

sudo apt-get install synaptic

Once Synaptic is installed, open it and search for python-uno to see if
there is one for 2.7 available.
