Hello,

I have Alfresco Community Edition 3.3 installed and working. I am now trying to get Open Office installed on my Ubuntu Server 10.4 edition so I can use it to do document transformations within Alfresco.

I installed Open Office by using the following command:  sudo apt-get install openoffice.org-headless

I then configured "alfresco-global.properties" as follows:

ooo.exe=/usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice
ooo.enabled=true

I then created a rule in my test space to convert *.docx files to *.pdf files when new content is added to the space.

I get the following error message in Alfresco when it tries to do the conversion:

Please correct the errors below then click OK.
• Failed to create content due to error: 04060017 Content conversion failed: reader: ContentAccessor[ contentUrl=store://2010/5/6/13/7/82f15f11-7952-4e4f-8c49-d03fac308a2f.bin, mimetype=application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document, size=10006, encoding=UTF-8, locale=en_US] writer: ContentAccessor[ contentUrl=store://2010/5/6/13/7/8d4a3df2-faee-42c5-a010-81de2babe549.bin, mimetype=application/pdf, size=0, encoding=UTF-8, locale=en_US] options: org.alfresco.service.cmr.repository.TransformationOptions@61b0a23a

Can somebody help please? I have been unable to find a solution using Google or searching the forums.
