    PDF Generator, RHEL and PostScript to PDF

    AJMott

      We're beginning an eval of LiveCycle and PDF Generator. I've successfully installed LiveCycle on RHEL 6.1, and everything appears to be configured correctly. (I'm able to load the adminui, at least.) The only module installed is PDF Generator, and when I attempt to convert a PostScript file to a PDF, it fails with the following error:

      Sure enough, when I browse to the directory there is no .exe file (or anything for that matter) in there. Which actually confuses me a little - why is it trying to run an exe file on a Linux environment? I'm really quite green at LiveCycle and am not sure what information would be useful to provide other than the OS and installed software:

       

      OS: RHEL 6.1

      JAVA: 1.6 u45

      AppServer: JBoss 5.1 (the one preconfigured with the LCES4 distributable)

      LiveCycle: ES4 (11.0)

       

      I'm happy to provide additional information that will help in debugging this issue. (This feels like a misconfiguration on my part, and I hope someone else has gone through this that can provide a bit of feedback.)

       

      Thanks.

       

      UPDATE: I have resolved the issue of the exe not being in the folder specified - was a bad ear deploy. So the executable now exists:

       

      /usr/share/lc_jboss/server/lc_mysql/svcnative/PsToPdfSvc/PsToPdfService.exe

       

      However, we're still getting the error about not being able to find the executable. Here's the directory list:

       

      [dmadmin@localhost PsToPdfSvc]$ pwd

      /usr/share/lc_jboss/server/lc_mysql/svcnative/PsToPdfSvc

      Again, this seems like a configuration issue, but I'm really at a loss as to what I've misconfigured.

          AJMott Level 1

          There appears to not be a lot of successful resolution to many questions around here, so let me contribute what I discovered for those who may run into this issue:

           

          After checking the installation multiple times, messing with permissions, etc., it boiled down to a missing library. Essentially, when installing LiveCycle on a fresh RHEL x64 installation, RHEL does not come with the necessary 32-bit libraries that PDF Generator requires. The library that is missing for RHEL is glibc.i686. Interestingly, this is noted as a required library for installing LiveCycle on SUSE, but not RHEL.

           

          Cheers.
