Following the instructions at:

I receive errors similar to the following post (with regards to ImageMagick):

I was able to fix the /bin/pdf2swf issue by creating a symbolic link between where Alfresco expects the install to be and where the swftools was actually installed.

Many of the posts speak to changing the location for Alfresco within the custom-repository.properties, but I searched the whole file system and cannot find this file.

Is this the file I should make the change for these errors and where is that file located?

Also, after starting Alfresco…it takes about 5-10 minutes for the share website to become available.  Is there are reason I should see such slow performance (I don't see this on my WIndows box).

Thanks for your help…jay
