Description schorschlan 2015-04-23 10:49:34 UTC
I created 2 VM with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. On both VM I installed OpenOffice 4.1.1.

For the error message "no suitable windowing system found, exiting." I installed libxt6 and libxrender1.

I start office with:
soffice --headless --accept=socket,host,0,port=9000;urp;

The process list show me that office is running

root@ubuntu2:/home/user# ps -A | grep office
 4179 pts/0    00:00:00 soffice
 4189 pts/0    00:00:00 soffice.bin

BUT the listen port 9000 is not open

root@ubuntu2:/home/user# netstat -a

My Java server can't create a connection over port 9000.
XComponentContext xCC =;
XUnoUrlResolver urlResolver = UnoUrlResolver.create(xCC);
Object initialObject = urlResolver.resolve("uno:socket,host=" + hostName + ",port=9000;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager");

Sorry, there was a typo in what I sent you. I meant host equals zero, which is the correct parameter.
I have tried:
soffice --headless --accept=socket,host=0,port=9000;urp; or
soffice --headless --accept=socket,host=localhost,port=9000;urp; or
soffice --headless --accept=socket,host=,port=9000;urp;
soffice -headless -accept=socket,host=0,port=9000;urp; or
soffice -headless -accept=socket,host=localhost,port=9000;urp; or
soffice -headless -accept=socket,host=,port=9000;urp;

... Which is exactly what the wiki said to do. The Open Office process is running but "netstat -a" tells me the listen port is not open.

As a side note, when I use libreoffice with the same parameters, on the same VM, the listen port opens... which leads me to believe that there's a bug in Open Office.
