[EP-tech] Coversheets plugin - can't find OpenOffice

Are any of you familiar with the Coversheets plugin and OpenOffice Toolkit?


We are trying to make it work, but so far we are stuck, as we can’t get it to find the OpenOffice executable.


We followed instructions from the wiki (http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Coversheets) and installed everything. I can add coversheets to the admin interface under “manage records”, and they are added to the task queue when the PDF is first requested. Everything seems to work except the part where it actually tries to generate and attach the coversheet.


Looking at the /eprints/var/OpenOffice.log file, I get “OpenOffice executable not found”, even though OpenOffice paths have been correctly set in the file /eprints/lib/cfg.d/openoffice.pl


Are we missing anything?


Running EPrints 3.3.13 on CentOS 7.


Thanks for your help!
