I have decided to install OpenERP 7 14 now under ubuntu. As far as I have no problems. However, when I try to install the OpenOffice report Deigner, I get the following error:

You must look into your addons directory to see whether addons/base_report_designer/plugin path exists and within which the 'openerp_report_designer.zip' file exists too.

If it exists, please check the permissions.


Hi thanks for answer. the path is usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/addons/base_report_designer/plugin/openerp_report_designer/test. I can't find the file 'openerp_report_designer.zip in my computer. someone another idear? Thank for helping
