initial version

Be careful to zip the file at the correct level. Here are the steps I followed to get it to work.

  1. From Github, Clone or download -> Download ZIP.
  2. Extract the zip file to "hello-libreoffice-extension-master" with a zip program. I used 7-Zip.
  3. Open the folder, select all files, right-click, 7-zip -> Add to "hello-libreoffice-extension-master.zip". Now "description.xml" should be at the top level inside the zip file, not in a subfolder.
  4. Rename to "hello-libreoffice-extension-master.oxt"

Then double-click to install. Now everything works as expected.

example version 1.0 in extension manager

If there are previous versions of the extension that cause installation to fail, then reset the LO user profile or delete the directory for that extension under user/uno_packages/cache/uno_packages.
