LibreOffice tool can be used to convert MSOffice documents to pdf file. My team noticed that our system seems failed to convert the documents randomly after we are trying to run the process in parallel. Digging up the internet, I found that it is a common issue, https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37531. Fortunately there is a simple solution to that, by simply passing an additional parameter, to specify a different installation folder. lowriter -env:UserInstallation=file://$random_dir –convert-to pdf –outdir $output_dir $input_file I am adding -env:UserInstallation parameter additionally from our existing command.
Somehow you will receive an email contains with only winmail.dat attachment when it is sent from Microsoft Outlook client. To handle this you will need TNEF command to extract the content. $ tnef –number-backups –save-body=filename_to_be –body-pref=H –directory=/path/to/output/folder /path/to/winmail/file 2>&1 –number-backups; there could be some attachments with the same name, so this will put a digit at the end of each of duplicated files, otherwise it will be overwritten e.g. file, file.
