I'm trying to get unoconv up and running on a shell only Debian system. Do I need to install LibreOffice separately?

I've managed to install it using simple apt-get install unoconc, but when I try and run a command to convert a ppt to jpgs, I'm getting some "Format not supported" complaint. Example below:

:~/ppt-test# unoconv -f jpg my-file.ppt
unoconv: UnoException during conversion: URL seems to be an unsupported one.
The provided document cannot be converted to the desired format.

Maybe the basic command structure is simple wrong?

What version of unoconv is this ? Could you try using v0.5 ?

Also you need LibreOffice installed, as well as the packages that are needed for what you like to do. In your case, you may need libreoffice-draw or any other related LibreOffice package. (I am sorry, I don't know what sub-packages are required for Debian. Easiest is to install all of them).

THanks for the fast response. I installed with with a simple apt-get install unoconv, so I'm guessing it's the latest version. I noticed that it installed Open Office as a dependency. When I tried to installed LIbreOffice I got a page full of unmet dependencies which it then refused to install.

It's an AWS vitutal instance, so it's easy to kill and start again.

Is the a repository for unoconv I should wire up?

Ok, it's version 0.3, not 0.5.

Right, how do I install version 0.5, rather than 0.3? Is there a respository I can point to?

Installation of unoconv is simple, you can take the unoconv python script from the latest release (or the master branch) and then run it with python. It is likely your problem is caused by v0.3 not supporting LibreOffice (yet). If this works, I would like you to report this to the upstream project (Debian) to update their unoconv package to v0.5. Please let me know if your issue is fixed with v0.5 !

Hey Dag,

One bug report attached. I suspect I've filed it in the wrong place, although there was nowhere which seemed correct. I'll let you know as I receive updates. M.

BTW I updated the README on Github to reflect the installation procedure. It should provide sufficient hints to what is needed to get unoconv working. I would appreciate if you could read it and apply what you think is necessary on Debian to make sure you have a working LibreOffice (including pyuno and xsltfilter) setup.

And thanks for opening a bug for Debian to update to v0.5. Much appreciated !

@aroxo I verified on my system, and for converting graphics, you may need openoffice or libreoffice sub-packages installed named e.g. libreoffice-draw and libreoffice-graphicfilter. They may not be requirements for the Debian package, but may be suggested instead ? Your mileage may vary...

Dag, Can you confirm that this error:

unoconv: UnoException during conversion: URL seems to be an unsupported one.
The provided document cannot be converted to the desired format.

Would suggest that the issue is with the OpenOffice/Libreoffice set-up?

Personally I simply cannot get libreoffice to install on a headless Debian system. I may have to use an alternative OS. What Linux flavour have you been able to get it to work on?

No, I cannot confirm that this is due to the OpenOffice/LibreOffice setup.
Have you installed all OpenOffice or LibreOffice packages as detailed in
the README ? (headless, pyuno, xsltfilter, draw, writer, ...)

Debian system. I may have to use an alternative OS. What Linux flavour

That is weird. What is preventing you ?

It should work with Debian, as it should work with any other distribution.
I am using RHEL6, but there are updated packages for other distributions
(Fedora, Gentoo, ...) that are reported to work fine.

Any ideas:

[root@ip-10-229-69-150 ec2-user]# unoconv -f jpg Vodafone\ feed\ changes.ppt
UNO IllegalArgument during import phase: Source file cannot be read. URL seems to be an unsupported one.

[root@ip-10-229-69-150 ec2-user]# unoconv -f jpg Vodafone\ feed\ changes.pptx
UNO IllegalArgument during import phase: Source file cannot be read. URL seems to be an unsupported one.

This is from a Fedora system. I updated the unoconv script to the latest version from GitHub….

On the package installed version of Unoconv it was giving a different error message, essentially complaining about a lack of headless package, although I had installed libreoffice-headless and the files you mentioned below…

As a test, can you rename the file to something without spaces ? I am
wondering whether this could have resulted in the error you describe ?

I tried that, as I thought it might be an issue.

What OS flavour do you use for a headless conversation? I'm more than happy to just copy that....

Once again - thanks for your help!

Sure - document attached. Just attempting a Red Hat Linux install best I can get is RHEL 6.2 on Amazon AWS. At least it's easy to start up and try different set-ups....

Sure - document attached. Just attempting a Red Hat Linux install best I can get is RHEL 6.2 on Amazon AWS. At least it's easy to start up and try different set-ups....

I am closing this issue. Various changes have been made to the master tree. If you still have issues making unoconv work on your distribution, please reopen this issue. Thanks in advance !

Hey Dag,

I still can't get a system set up and running properly. I'd be more than happy to pay you to set one up for me, if you could also write me out the instructions which I'd need to recreate on other machines? Something like €75 or so - let me know if you're interested.

@aroxo Have you tried with the latest version from the master branch ? We have made various improvements. Should work out of the box. Testing with this version can give us a clue if we are improving for the open issues. I would like to release this ASAP as v0.6.

You can download a tarball directly from: https://github.com/dagwieers/unoconv/tarball/master or a zip file from: https://github.com/dagwieers/unoconv/zipball/master

Thanks in advance !

Install done, all using openoffice and I’m very happy to confirm that it works, as you say, out of the box! J

I have 1 question. I’m trying to convert a pptx into a series of screenshots, but I’m only getting a screenshot of the first slide. I tried this:

unoconv -f jpg -e PageRange=3 my-ppt.pptx

But it’s still outputting the first slide. Any ideas?

Great that it works!

This is related to the filter. The PageRange option only works for the pdf-filter. I don't know the various options the jpeg filter supports :-/

One way to do what you like, is use the html output filter, which creates an image of each slide.

Working – this is brilliant! I can work from the html output, but do you know where I can research the kpeg filter you mention below? Is this a filter which is sent to Open Office? i.e. does your script effectively open the file in Open Office and do a “Print As” or “File Save As”?

The LibreOffice/OpenOffice jpeg filter. I don't know what options this filter accepts as it is not documented (for UNO)...

Have raised the question on the UNO support forum, I’ll let you know if I get a satisfactory response and you can include it in your documentation. Great work on the new version, by the way.

Sure, here is the question:

http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=56201&sid=2437665e2841ce6ecd0c11d394f9580f

But so far nothing and the forum doesn’t look particularly well trafficked.
I’ll let you know if I get an answer.

Cheers,
Matt.

The reply makes perfect sense where the aim is to make a specific selection for the export. We have in fact another issue open (#34) for making selections (in a document-type agnostic manner). I would like to track all relevant bits there.

Another suggestion I have made is to allow plugins in unoconv, so specific manipulations (or in this case selections) can be added for specific use-cases. This would allow anyone to create their own specific manipulation. See issue #40 for an example.
