How to use the LibreOffice Tracker Hack on Mac and Linux.

I suppose it also could work on Windows somehow, but I actually don't know. Installing
pyliblo is kind of the hard part. Maybe the internet will help you with that. If running the
Python script doesn't throw errors you know you've made it.

1) Install pyliblo. Don't ask me for support, ask the internet :-)
2) get LibreOffice (OpenOffice will also do the trick)
3) get SuperCollider. http://supercollider.sourceforge.net/
4) Make a new Folder and unzip all my files to it.
5) Open the Spreadsheet and right away save it as a CSV file (Comma Separated Values)
called input.csv and save it in the same folder.
6) Open libre-jam.scd with SuperCollider, boot localhost server and evaluate all source code
7) Open a terminal window, cd (change directory) to your folder and run the Python script with
python beatz.py

Now you should be able to make music with LibreOffice. Just fill in some values and save the csv
file again. The Python script will recognize that it has changed and will update its data.

It's VERY inflexible. If you want to add instruments or change sounds you will have to learn
Python and/or SuperCollider. If you want to do this seriously I would advice you to restart
from scratch. It's a proof of concept, not a framework or user-centered program.

Have fun!
