Hi -rich,
many thanks for your suggestion, but if i run:

python ./ Brochure_breve.odg > output.txt


john output.txt
No password hashes loaded (see FAQ)


if I run:
john -format=odf -t output.txt (as indicated here:
Invalid options combination or duplicate option: "-t"


john -format=odf output.txt
Unknown ciphertext format name requested

...GASP! :-)
