Does not view .doc files

Hi guys,
I am not able to view files with extension .doc in Alfresco.
The following message occurs:

This document cannot be previewed.
Click here to download it.

Alfresco version: 6.1.1
Operating system version: Ubuntu linux 18.04.3 LTS
Can you help us?
With best regards,

Re: Does not view .doc files


Your doc file cann't not be converted to pdf successfully.Maybe it is too large that exceeds max size limit of libreoffice transformer or libreoffice just can't convert it.

Re: Does not view .doc files

Hi kaynezhang,
Alfresco was installed via Loftux script.
alfinstall.sh

It automatically installs the moment you run the script.

pwd
/opt/libreoffice6.2/program

./soffice --convert-to pdf /home/jbrasil/teste-jbrasil.docx --outdir /home/jbrasil/pdf/

l /home/ brasil/pdf/
total 8.0K
-rw-r - r-- 1 root 7.1K Sep 23 14:29 teste-jbrasil.pdf

I ran the soffice command. And generated the .pdf file

By libreoffice he doesn't find the executable
libreoffice --convert-to pdf /home/jbrasil/teste-jbrasil.docx --outdir / home / jbrasil / pdf /

Command 'libreoffice' not found, but can be installed with:

snap install libreoffice # version 6.4.5.2, or
apt install libreoffice-common

See 'snap info libreoffice' for additional versions.

Anything else to be done?
With best regards.
