>>>> Please install '' package from Synaptic manager [specific to Linux machines]

2] For error: Unable to load java while installing the extension

>>>> Please check that your machine has java 6 or above, installed. If you have it and you are still facing the same problem, now you need to mention path of the JRE to be used, in OpenOffice.Please do it this way:

* Go to Openoofice Writer: Tools --->Options ---> ----->java.
* Now check 'use a Java runtime environment' and if you see one/more JREs there, select it/one of them.
* click 'OK'. You may try installing the extension now.

If you don't see any JRE in the window, click 'Add' and select the JRE you want to use from the file browser window.

Error Messages:
While using the XlitHindi you may come across the error message saying: "Transliteration Failed. May be a Network problem"
It means either your computer is not connected to INTERNET or OpenOffice is facing problem in connecting to internet or our server is down.
Upon such error please check your internet connection.If you are behind proxy please set the Proxy settings in OpenOffice as:

Go to Tools----->Options --->Internet--->Proxy.
Now select System . Say 'OK' and try using xlitHindi now; if that doesn't work select 'Manual' instead and fill the 'HTTP Proxy' and 'Port' numbers.

If  your OOo starts not responding  while you are trying the extension, please check your installed JAVA. To run the extension properly you need  "Sun Java" and not the "Free software foundation Java". Check this in Tools --->Options ---> ----->java;  and make sure that, the Java being used is Sun Java. 

Please feel free to suggest/comment/query!
