Alfresco 5 Office Preview Fix

check if libreoffice is running

/opt/alfresco-5.0.a/libreoffice/scripts/libreoffice_ctl.sh status

edit the file /opt/alfresco-5.0.a/alfresco.sh modify the line LIBREOFFICE_SCRIPT with the correct script path

LIBREOFFICE_SCRIPT=$INSTALLDIR/libreoffice/scripts/libreoffice_ctl.sh

test for missing libraries

/opt/alfresco-5.0.a/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin --nofirststartwizard --nologo --headless --accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100

install missing libraries (I had missing libxinerama1 and libdbus-glib-1-2)

apt-get install libxinerama1
apt-get install libdbus-glib-1-2

Debian 8:
libglu1-mesa libcups2 libfontconfig1

Edit libreoffice_ctl.sh (remove "")

Soffice="$SOFFICEWRAPPER --nofirststartwizard --nologo --headless --accept=socket,host=localhost,port=$SOFFICE_PORT;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager"

try to start opeoffice using the script

/opt/alfresco-5.0.a/libreoffice/scripts/libreoffice_ctl.sh start

restart alfresco

/etc/init.d/alfresco restart

you must see the line

/opt/alfresco-5.0.a/libreoffice/scripts/libreoffice_ctl.sh : libreoffice started at port 8100
