Alfresco 4.0 Community - Document preview does not work

Hi,

I have installed Alfresco 4.0 community edition on my Mac running Snow Leopard. The installation was a breeze but try as I might, I am not able to get the document (MS-Word) preview working. The PDF preview works, however.

I am using a pre-installed OpenOffice.

The <ALFRESCO_HOME>/alfresco.log file shows this:


18:33:58,721 INFO  [org.alfresco.repo.management.subsystems.ChildApplicationContextFactory] Starting 'OOoDirect' subsystem, ID: [OOoDirect, default]
18:33:59,139 WARN  [org.alfresco.util.OpenOfficeConnectionTester] An initial OpenOffice connection could not be established.
18:33:59,147 INFO  [org.alfresco.repo.management.subsystems.ChildApplicationContextFactory] Startup of 'OOoDirect' subsystem, ID: [OOoDirect, default] complete

And this is what I have in the properties file:


ooo.exe=/Applications/OpenOffice.org.app/Contents/MacOS/soffice.bin
ooo.enabled=true
ooo.port=8100
ooo.port=8100

If I start OpenOffice from the command line with the same path, OpenOffice works.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
