Writer2xhtml update

A brief update to the Writer2xhtml problem. I have had no response from the developer, but one of the advantages of opensource products is that you can do it for yourself. So I downloaded the source, applied the necessary patches and rebuilt. It all went smoothly.

The update worked on my old LibreOffice v3.6, so I set-up a LibreOffice v4.1 (just released) portable install, and it appears to work fine on that too (option dialog showed and epub saved and validates).

So, if you want to try Writer2xhtml on LibreOffice v4+, but don't want to patch and build it yourself, AND if you trust me not to send you a virus or trojan, then you can send me a PM with your email address and I can send an updated version of the package (1.9MB zip file).

I can't guarantee that I will be doing any updates beyond this, so you may prefer to try the Writer2epub which is still being actively maintained. (I wanted Writer2xhtml because it has a couple of things I specifically asked for and use.)

This should show you what versions of Java LO has recognised and which one it is using.)

Also, did you note the conversation above with avantman42? It seems that writer2xhtml has problems with the LO v4 (I'm still using LO v3.6). There may be ways around that (a command line version of the convert process), but if you are using LO v4 you may find it simpler to try the Writer2Epub plug-in (that link goes to the forum right here on MR where you can find out more). I've not used that one (yet), but it is supposed to be LO v4 compatible.

And yes, LO does PDF very well.
Thanks G.M. Going to give Writer2Epub a whirl. (As I do have LO v4.) I'm looking forward to it. Thanks for the link.
