Alfresco Misconfiguration problem


I recently installe the jumbox with alfresco. After a little probleme with backup process (thanks a lot for your answers), I recently meet another problem.

It seems that the alfresco is not properly configured because in the share interface, the preview of file (pdf, doc, ...) don't work.

I first don't touch any config file. and try to restart the server.

Now I try to find what is not working with file preview.

Here is an error that I find in the log File of alfresco:

Failed to execute script 'classpath*:alfresco/templates/webscripts/org/alfresco/repository/thumbnail/thumbnail.get.js': 06120052 Content conversion failed:

Perhaps somebody have an idea?

Thank's in advance for your answers


I tried the JumpBox for

I tried the JumpBox for Alfresco 1.6.2 and it failed to do previews similarly. Increasing the memory to the virtual machine enabled previews to work again. (How to increase memory would depend on the virtualization How much memory to allocate would depend on your particular usage pattern.

Note that Ubuntu has some security issues with pdf2swf

PDF previews can be configured off if security is an issue for you. If your system is internal with trusted users, this may be of little concern.

Sorry that this didn't work out of the box, default memory is always a balancing act and Java apps do tend to be a little greedy.

Best wishes,

I found an error : I got this

I found an error :

I got this error message when I try to execute the library pdf2swf:

opt/alfresco/common/bin/.pdf2swf.bin: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/alfresco-/common/lib/ file too short

I correct it by running this command :

rm -f
ln -s

I can now run pdf2swf without error but preview still don't work

Help is welcome
