 There is a python3-uno, but it doesn't help me, since Appy POD does not
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".

From what I can tell, my Ubuntu 13.04 has both python-uno (using python
2.7) or python3-uno as mutually exclusive installable possibilities. That
would appear to have changed with the release of Ubuntu 13.10 ?

Indeed, I previously had Ubuntu 13.04 and python-uno (for Python 2.7) was
available and worked great.  Not sure why it got deprecated, I can't seem
to find a ChangeLog entry anywhere to that effect.

Does anyone know if Python uno support depends on the libreoffice
  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?

I seem to recall that Python3 support was introduced as the default with
the switch to the LO 4.1 series, which is what is supplied with Ubuntu
13.10, I believe.

I wonder if the Python version is a build time option for LibreOffice?  I
might be able to repackage libreoffice for Python 2.7 from the Ubuntu

If you want to carry on using pyuno built against python 2.7, I guess you
will need to completely remove the Ubuntu provided LO and python
dependencies, and attempt to install either an earlier version of an Ubuntu
provided LO package (if possible), or else the DEB packages available from
the LO download site, which will not integrate in the same way as the
Ubuntu provided packages.

I was afraid that might be the case.


Thank you for the info.
