Alfresco tips and tricks – #12 Libraries necessary to support LibreOffice were not found

Starting from version 4.2, the Alfresco setup wizard validates whether or not some required libraries to LibreOffice support are present on some GNU/Linux distributions. When you try to run the alfresco installer, if libraries like libfontconfig.so or libXrender.so are missing, you will get a warning message like this:

Some or all of the libraries necessary to support LibreOffice were not found on your system: fontconfig libSM libICE libXrender libXext. For more information, please refer to http://docs.alfresco.com/4.2/topic/com.alfresco.enterprise.doc/concepts/install-lolibfiles.html

To succesfully complete the Alfresco setup wizard you need to manually install the required libraries. Here is the commands for the supported distributions:

NOTE 1 – [ Alfresco 4.2.c – UBUNTU 10.04 amd64 ]

NOTE 2 – [ Alfresco 5.2 – UBUNTU 16.04 amd64 ]
