I'm first-time installing Alfresco ECM CE 5.2.2 on Ubuntu 1404 and I'm getting the following never-ending message:
Some or all of the libraries needed to support LibreOffice were not found on your system: fontconfig libSM libICE libXrender libXext libcups libGLU libcairo2 libgl1-mesa-glx You are strongly advised to stop this installation and install the libraries. For more information, see the LibreOffice documentation at http://docs.alfresco.com/search/site/all?keys=libfontconfig
Since my distro doesn't contain those specific versions, I installed the following:
Note: There is no community edition (CE) version called 5.2.2. That "5.2.2" version is the enterprise edition (EE) of Alfresco, also called Alfresco Content Services. The latest CE version is 201707 GA (release bundle name as found on this platform), comprised of Alfresco Platform 5.2.g and Alfresco Share 5.2.f.
I mean that, you can skip this pass and ignore this message by the moment. But you need these libraries for Libreoffice, so install them via apt.
Then you have to be sure that Libreoffice's transformations are working properly (for example when previewing a doc file in Alfresco Share). A previous basic check is to run $ALF_HOME/libreoffice/program/bin/soffice.bin --help in a terminal. If no problems are obtained with dependencies, you are going in the right way.
