Error: the status of the extension is unknown

Is it naive of me to assume that base_report_designer works in version 7? I'm using

root@QnD:~# cat /etc/issue Ubuntu 13.10 \n \l

base_report_designer.zip 116009 bytes

LibreOffice version Version: Build ID: 410m0(Build:3)

And after following the OpenOffice Report Designer (base_report_designer) installation procedures LibreOffice complains "Error: the status of the extension is unknown" and the Enable button gets

< class 'SyntaxError' >: invalid syntax (OpenERPReport.py, line 36), traceback follows
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/pythonloader.py:102 in function getModuleFromUrl() [codeobject = compile( src, encfile(filename), "exec" )]
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/pythonloader.py:149 in function writeRegistryInfo() [mod = self.getModuleFromUrl( locationUrl )]

to get rid of the failing base_report_designer extension I have to eradicate LibreOffice from my system then re-install.

Any suggestions you have are very much appreciated!

Another system works fine

daletest@Bubbles4:~$ cat /etc/issue

Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS \n \l

base_report_designer.zip 116009 bytes

LibreOffice Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)

Thanks to Sébastien Versailles (sve) here for a post which says OpenOffice Report Designer version up to 0.1 (base_report_designer.zip 116009 bytes) works with OpenOffice or LibreOffice version 3.6 but not 4.0.
