      The version number is in the Description.xml file in the oxt file. 
I had not changed  "1.02" to "1.04_3" in the 32 bit version which you 
used. I had  earlier changed this in the 64 bit version, and I thought I 
had changed this in the 32 bit version. I have now corrected this error. 
Thank you for finding it.
      I have a 32 bit MacBook running Kubuntu 14.04 and a 64 bit tower 
running Ubuntu 12.04. Both have MySQL 5.5 running. I had no problem 
installing the correct mysql connector in either of them. I Then I was 
able to access the mysql server, open a database, and even added and 
modified some data with no problems.
      I tested these connectors with LibreOffice 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. They 
do not work with 4.1, but both work with 4.2 and 4.3.
      Whether they will work with MariaDB 10.x or not I do not know. 
This would have to be determined by someone who has it on their 
computer. I strictly use MySQL.
