Error on previewing office document in ACS 6.2


I have installed Alfresco community version 6.2 on a CentOs 7. I'm encoutering an error when I preview office document (docx, xlsx extension)

I have followed these instructions ( : I have installed Libreoffice 6.3 and in I have configured these options : 


But when I click on a thumbbail of an office document, I have an error : "this document cannot be previewed". I've looked at the catalina.out log file and I find only one error but I don't know if it is related :

Hi @dareal 

At first glance this looks like a permissions issue. Is LibreOffice running, with the correct permissions? Can you call LibreOffice from the cmd line?

Re: Error on previewing office document in ACS 6.2

Hello @EddieMay 

Thank you for this link. It seems to have the same error, but it's not the same version of ACS. 

I didn't find or in my alfresco and libreoffice folder. For testing purpose only I have put full rigth on libreoffice folder.

I can launch soffice.bin from cmd line. I can't see libreoffice because it's a non graphic server, but I have no error in the command line (no missing files or modules). 

When I check processes I can see it running :
