the headline tells it.
As I just found the extension "toools", which seems to waste may time only, I like and need to talk about that first, before chase and blame the gay for haveing produced nonsense.

Here looks like a good place. What's the problem(s)?

I guessed so, but better to ask first (as it seems nobody is posting something here related to extensions .. )

"Toools" looks interesting, esp. as there are only very few tools dealing with xml (ics is xml - somehow ), but also as a gantt-tool for ooo.

However, it is not working, the setup-skript terminates before the .odb is build.
I don't know whether this is related to the platform (ooo-portable-de) or the script or an error in the directory-setup for the portable version. So maybe someone else could give it a try

The extension owner gives his contact email address as sergio0.1@libero.it on the extension home page and also gives a link to a tutorial:

http://ooobasic.tuxfamily.org/Toools%20Tutorial.pdf

and to a (non-free) User guide:

http://www.lulu.com/content/e-book/icstools---user-guide/7869872

The extension owner gives his email as egio@tuxfamily.org on his own website:

== Robert T.

yes, you are right, that are the links one will get when reading through the ooo-extensions-page, and which one may need in case it is working.

However, as you have found them, it would be very kind, if you inform us that you tried to run TOOOLS too, and what the outcome of your testing was.

I think I may need to hand that one over... it looks a little involved to look into on a whim.
