2017-02-14 09:52:30 GMT <IanW1> ~later jpotts we have a similar use case - first thought was to disable users (MNT-12283/MNT-15038) - in the end we allow them to authenticate(SSO) but send them to a page without any links (and have other restrictions in place on content so safe enough for us) - code available

2017-02-14 09:54:47 GMT <mrks_js> does anyone know what happened to the "new and awesome feature to export/import files in share easily"? : )

2017-02-14 10:31:33 GMT <yreg> mrks_js, I am not aware of such a feature

2017-02-14 10:32:05 GMT <yreg> but I do use some community addon to export/import ACPs from share in admin console

2017-02-14 10:32:47 GMT <yreg> unfortunately it is not available on any repo I know of, and you need to clone the github repo and build the addon yourself using ant

2017-02-14 10:34:11 GMT <yreg> Markus, checkout this repo : https://github.com/atolcd/alfresco-share-import-export

2017-02-14 10:34:12 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - atolcd/alfresco-share-import-export (at github.com)

2017-02-14 11:36:36 GMT <mrks_js> thanks Younes!

2017-02-14 11:41:06 GMT <douglascrp> morning everyone

2017-02-14 11:41:14 GMT <douglascrp> Loftux, hello

2017-02-14 11:41:40 GMT <douglascrp> Loftux, I had to downgrade the tomcat version in one of my servers yesterday because of the issue you found another day

2017-02-14 11:45:31 GMT <Loftux> douglascrp: Oh, hope it wasn't to much trouble. I've only found that one issue in Alfresco with edit properties that is affected, but I've had cases of my own code.

2017-02-14 12:05:55 GMT <DarkStar1> afternoon everybody

2017-02-14 12:06:25 GMT <DarkStar1> Loftux douglascrp what issue?

2017-02-14 12:10:15 GMT <mrks_js> https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21851

2017-02-14 12:10:20 GMT <mrks_js> i think

2017-02-14 12:10:49 GMT <angelborroy> mrks_js DarkStar1 right, that one

2017-02-14 12:15:00 GMT * DarkStar1 thanks angelborroy

2017-02-14 12:21:14 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, hey dude

2017-02-14 12:21:32 GMT <DarkStar1> douglascrp: o/ amigo

2017-02-14 12:21:49 GMT <douglascrp> mrks_js, DarkStar1 yes, that issue

2017-02-14 12:22:06 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, how are you?

2017-02-14 12:22:36 GMT <douglascrp> why don't you guys vote on that issue?

2017-02-14 12:22:45 GMT <douglascrp> I think Alfresco should prioritize that one

2017-02-14 12:23:26 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp why is it that important?

2017-02-14 12:23:58 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, well, to give us freedom to use the more updated versions of tomcat

2017-02-14 12:24:03 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp which advantages have you identified on using that Tomcat version from prior ones┬┐

2017-02-14 12:24:17 GMT <angelborroy> IMO is not so important at all

2017-02-14 12:24:26 GMT <douglascrp> not real advantage, but as the time pass, we will have to keep old versions

2017-02-14 12:25:10 GMT <douglascrp> for those using the OS package managers, for example

2017-02-14 12:25:44 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp no problem, what is important for you can be not for me :D

2017-02-14 12:26:09 GMT <angelborroy> douglascrp also true in the other direction ;-)

2017-02-14 12:26:10 GMT <douglascrp> angelborroy, yes, that is true

2017-02-14 12:26:32 GMT <AFaust> They could potentially better invest their time and prepare for Java 9 (and related application servers)

2017-02-14 12:26:38 GMT <angelborroy> +1

2017-02-14 12:26:40 GMT <douglascrp> for me, for example, it is not important at all, as I install tomcat by downloading the tar.gz

2017-02-14 12:27:46 GMT <douglascrp> ok, so I think I should rephrase that one... I think Alfresco could prioritize that one

2017-02-14 12:27:47 GMT <douglascrp> :D

2017-02-14 14:30:29 GMT <bmejias> hi guys... anyone using alfresco 5.1.2 ?

2017-02-14 14:32:24 GMT <angelborroy> 5.1.0 here

2017-02-14 14:33:44 GMT <bmejias> thanks angelborroy, but this is specific to 5.1.2

2017-02-14 14:33:51 GMT <bmejias> I think I've found a bug in Share

2017-02-14 14:34:01 GMT <bmejias> Code that is not there in Alfresco 5.1.1

2017-02-14 14:36:55 GMT <yreg> I have 5.1.1.4 on multiple systems

2017-02-14 14:37:15 GMT <bmejias> yreg I compared the code of 5.1.2 to that version.

2017-02-14 14:37:35 GMT <bmejias> it's breaking the document view.

2017-02-14 14:37:54 GMT <bmejias> It wasn't the consultant's code.

2017-02-14 14:49:22 GMT <yreg> bmejias, I see

2017-02-14 14:49:29 GMT <yreg> do you want me to have a look

2017-02-14 14:49:30 GMT <yreg> ?

2017-02-14 15:01:36 GMT <bmejias> yreg, that would be nice... just to confirm.

2017-02-14 15:02:16 GMT <bmejias> it's on webapps/share/components/documentlibrary/documentlist.js

2017-02-14 15:02:54 GMT <bmejias> on version 5.1.2, line 708, it says: var repoPath = record.location.path

2017-02-14 15:03:00 GMT <bmejias> sorry, it says: var repoPath = record.location.repoPath

2017-02-14 15:03:26 GMT <bmejias> the location.repoPath seems wrong to me... it should be location.path

2017-02-14 15:03:48 GMT <bmejias> as I posted first.... that's the line I corrected.... and then the document list is fixed.

2017-02-14 15:12:24 GMT <yreg> hmmm seems dd

2017-02-14 15:12:29 GMT <yreg> odd**

2017-02-14 15:13:28 GMT <bmejias> what seems odd? the repoPath? or the fact that changing that line fixed the issue?

2017-02-14 15:29:32 GMT <yreg> let's start by the fact that you got an uncompressed JS

2017-02-14 15:29:49 GMT <yreg> are you running alfresco in development mode ?

2017-02-14 15:30:32 GMT <yreg> ~tell resplin ping me when you are available

2017-02-14 15:30:32 GMT <alfbot> yreg: The operation succeeded.

2017-02-14 15:33:54 GMT <resplin> yreg: What's up?

2017-02-14 15:41:11 GMT <bmejias> hi resplin

2017-02-14 15:41:21 GMT <bmejias> I think I've found a bug in Alfresco Share 5.1.2

2017-02-14 15:41:49 GMT <bmejias> do we get beers for such a contribution? I even found the fix :D

2017-02-14 15:41:52 GMT <bmejias> well, I think.

2017-02-14 15:42:14 GMT <Vasquez> hi guys

2017-02-14 15:43:01 GMT <Vasquez> can someone take a look of this error please, i have googled but didnt find much about it tied to alfresco

2017-02-14 15:43:02 GMT <Vasquez> http://pastebin.com/WXj0Vcc1

2017-02-14 15:43:03 GMT <alfbot> Title: [Apache Log] 2017-01-31 17:20:49,786 INFO [webscripts.connector.RemoteClient] [http-apr-808 - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2017-02-14 15:43:07 GMT <resplin> bmejias: For your patch, I promise that Alfresco will give you something nice at BeeCon. We are still working on what it will be. <grin>

2017-02-14 15:43:17 GMT <bmejias> yeaaaah!

2017-02-14 15:43:27 GMT <bmejias> if it is confirmed of course.

2017-02-14 15:43:31 GMT <resplin> Everyone at BeeCon is a contributor!

2017-02-14 15:43:51 GMT <bmejias> At least I open a case in support.alfresco.com, so I have everything documented.

2017-02-14 15:43:56 GMT <resplin> Or to put it another way, last year we gave you a backpack knowing that you would contribute a fix like this.

2017-02-14 15:44:20 GMT <resplin> On a more serious note, thanks for reporting it. I'll look for the fix to come through the system.

2017-02-14 15:44:51 GMT <bmejias> resplin, hehehe... ok ok... good for the backpack.

2017-02-14 15:50:05 GMT <bmejias> ~flushlog

2017-02-14 15:50:05 GMT <alfbot> bmejias: Woooosh, your log has been flushed...

2017-02-14 15:50:59 GMT <bmejias> yreg ok, got the message you sent when I was disconnected.

2017-02-14 15:51:18 GMT <bmejias> No, I'm not in dev mode, I just went to check the uncompressed filed on webapps.

2017-02-14 15:51:32 GMT <yreg> OK

2017-02-14 15:51:35 GMT <yreg> makes sense

2017-02-14 15:51:36 GMT <bmejias> I didn't looked at the compressed file.

2017-02-14 15:51:46 GMT <bmejias> just the source, without the min.

2017-02-14 15:51:58 GMT <yreg> but such an obvious thing should not pass initial QA @ alfresco

2017-02-14 15:52:13 GMT <bmejias> yreg that's what I would have expected.

2017-02-14 15:52:13 GMT <yreg> I doubt that the problem exists in a vanilla install

2017-02-14 15:52:22 GMT <bmejias> cof cof...

2017-02-14 15:52:33 GMT <bmejias> I just reverted to the original share.war file

2017-02-14 15:52:39 GMT <yreg> but will setup a 5.1.2 instance and check it out any way by tomorrow

2017-02-14 15:53:31 GMT <bmejias> the interesting part is that the bug didn't appear immediately.

2017-02-14 15:53:37 GMT <bmejias> only after creating sites.

2017-02-14 15:53:49 GMT <bmejias> so, it's not really vanilla

2017-02-14 15:53:54 GMT <bmejias> but it's the original share.ware

2017-02-14 15:53:58 GMT <bmejias> s/ware/war/

2017-02-14 15:54:40 GMT <yreg> bmejias, good pointer

2017-02-14 15:55:05 GMT <bmejias> let me know if you find something tomorrow.

2017-02-14 15:56:16 GMT <bmejias> I have to go now.

2017-02-14 15:56:19 GMT <bmejias> cheers fellows.

2017-02-14 17:12:10 GMT <douglascrp> I'm facing problems with the libreoffice generated previews on ubuntu 16.04

2017-02-14 17:12:18 GMT <douglascrp> there is no way I can make it work

2017-02-14 17:12:30 GMT <douglascrp> when I check the process, I see a soffice.bin<defunct>

2017-02-14 17:13:12 GMT <douglascrp> I use the Loftux script to install it, and it downloads the deb files and install them

2017-02-14 17:13:32 GMT <douglascrp> now I'm trying with libreoffice installed by using apt-get, and now it doesn't even start

2017-02-14 17:15:59 GMT <Loftux> douglascrp: I've seen that I have to start libreoffice once via the scripts/libreoffice.sh. I think this has to do with generating to libreoffice config folder.

2017-02-14 17:16:24 GMT <douglascrp> Loftux, I tried it, but it starts and ends almost instantaneously

2017-02-14 17:17:04 GMT <douglascrp> I'm trying to find a way to debug the libreoffice service and try to identify any problem with the setup, but nothing helps

2017-02-14 17:18:22 GMT <douglascrp> Loftux, I'll let you know if I find something

2017-02-14 17:18:32 GMT <douglascrp> but I have to leave now for some hours

2017-02-14 17:18:37 GMT <douglascrp> later
