$ ls foo.txtls: delme.txt: No such file or directory$Sorry, the delme.txt above is a typo. it 
should be$ ls foo.txtls: foo.txt: No such file or directory$(Basically, I'm issuing the 'ls' 
command to show that foo.txt did
    not get created.)On 02/29/2012 01:05 PM, Harry Simons wrote:Hey Andreas,Please treat this 
question as a headless question from a headless
      one.I'm on RHEL 5, so cannot used Windows-based solutions. LO being
      multi-megabyte is not an issue as long as it works.I forgot: Did you play with the command 
line options of
      LibreOffice?Yes, I have been playing and reading and reading and playing for
      the last several hours. Have tried looking at the code of unoconv
      also but not much luck so far. I admit I'm not a good code-reader
      and I'm reading in a very rushed-mode also.I, for example, tried the following to start the 
LO as listener:$ soffice.bin --headless
        --accept='socket,host=0,port=8100,tcpNoDelay=1;urp;'[2] 13628$ netstat -tnap | grep 
sofficetcp        0      0              *                   LISTEN      13628/soffice.bin  So, clearly soffice is listening 
now.To connect, I'm issuing the following but don't really know if
      this what is needed to be done. Which is why I posted the question
      in the first place. Read this link also in the meantime 
      , but I'm still missing something.$ soffice.bin --headless
        --convert-to txt foo.doc; echo $?1$ ls foo.txtls: delme.txt: No such file or directory$I 
need a tool that converts not just .doc files but all MS Office
      files (.xls, .ppt, .docx, .xlsx, .pptx). I thought LO would be
      great to use these since I'm already satisfied by how it loads up
      these files in interactive/GUI mode.Would greatly appreciate if someone could point out what 
      I'm missing, my needle is stuck and not moving forward. :-(Regards,A headless listener :-)On
