Nuxeo DM uses external software for some features. They need to be installed on the server in addition to Nuxeo DM.
Here is the list of additional resources you may want to install:
- OpenOffice.org: used for web preview and annotations of office documents
- pdftohtml: used for web preview of PDF documents
- ImageMagick: used for preview, tiling and rotation of picture documents
Set up OpenOffice.org for preview and annotation on Office documents
OpenOffice.org is used to handle PDF tranformation of some documents. This means you need to install OpenOffice on the server to have the PDF, preview and annotation features enabled.
If OpenOffice is already installed on your server, Nuxeo comes with a daemon that should automatically start it.
You can find more information about managing the daemon here.
Configuration file for the daemon is
server/default/deploy/nuxeo.ear/config/ooo-config.xml under JBoss).
If you need information about installing OpenOffice or want to manage OpenOffice server without the daemon, you can see section 45.1 of the Nuxeo-Book.
Set up pdftohtml for PDF preview
The preview of PDF documents requires the installation of the pdftohtml software.
Please see Nuxeo-Book chapter about "PDF documents".
Set up ImageMagick for picture tiling features
The image tiling used in the preview of large images, and so in the Annotations module, needs the installation of the ImageMagick software.
Please see Nuxeo-Book chapter about "Image tiling".
Requirements (ie: ImageMagick 6.3.7 or later) are defined in the installation section.
