    2. Extract aeroolib.tar.gz into the current folder
      tar -xvzf aeroolib.tar.gz
    3. Go to aeroolib folder and run following command to install library:

  3. Install Aeroo standard module: Open your browser and log-in to your OpenERP installation as admin. Make sure you enabled extended view then go to Settings->Modules->Update Module List. Then click Open Modules and search for keyword aeroo. Install all the Aeroo report modules afterwards (report_aeroo, report_aeroo_ooo)
  4. Create a script to start LibreOffice headless as a service every time the OpenERP server boots up
    1. $ sudo nano /etc/init.d/
      Paste the following below this line
      # headless server script
      # chkconfig: 2345 80 30

      set -e
      case "$1" in
      if [ -f $PIDFILE ]; then
      echo "OpenOffice headless server has already started."
      sleep 5
      echo "Starting OpenOffice headless server"
      $SOFFICE_PATH -headless -nologo -nofirststartwizard -accept="socket,host=,port=8100;urp" & > /dev/null 2>&1
      touch $PIDFILE
      if [ -f $PIDFILE ]; then
      echo "Stopping OpenOffice headless server."
      killall -9 soffice && killall -9 soffice.bin

      echo "Openoffice headless server is not running."
      echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
      exit 1
      exit 0
  5. Exit the nano editor and save the file you just did. Make the script executable and make it start automatically at boot
    $ sudo chmod 0755 /etc/init.d/
    $ sudo update-rc.d defaults
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/ start
  6. Go to Settings->Customization->Aeroo Reports->Configure connection. Click Connect. It should display that connection was successful and PDF conversion is working.
