Installation and version

How did you install Parlatype?

  • ArchLinux AUR tarball
    parlatype --version 1.5.6
    I changed the configure line in the PKGBUILD to enable LibreOffice helpers
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-libreoffice --disable-introspection --disable-tests

Your desktop environment

  • Distro: Manjaro Linux
  • WM: i3
  • LibreOffice: v6.0.6.2


  • LibreOffice helpers don't work / produce an error
  • I never tried previous versions of Parlatype
  • Steps to reproduce:
    I made a toolbar for all Parlatype LibreOffice Macros, if I click on the PlayPause button an error window pops up Error during invoking function PlayPause in module file:///usr/lib/libreoffice/share/Scripts/python/ (<class 'TypeError'>: PlayPause() takes 0 positional arguments but 1 was given
  File "/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/", line 875, in invoke
    ret = self.func( *args )
  • Keyboard shortcuts don't work either and they don't show any error message.
  • Every macro gives a similar error, only the function changes accordingly.

Thank you for the detailed bug report! I repeated your steps and I have to confirm that it's not working with buttons. I always used keyboard shortcuts and was not aware that with buttons obviously something has to be done in a different way.

I can't confirm however that keyboard shortcuts are not working. Could you please try this part again? In the help pages you'll find instructions, please do it as described there:

I just found out that it's possible to close the dialog (2nd screenshot in link above) without clicking on "OK". You have to assign a shortcut to a function AND you have to click on OK! Parlatype has to be open with a file opened.

The referenced commit has fixed the issue with buttons. Please reopen it, if you still have some issues with it. You can download the fixed libreoffice macros here: and save them at /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/Scripts/python/
