Are any of you familiar with the Coversheets plugin and OpenOffice Toolkit?

We are trying to make it work, but so far we are stuck, as we can’t get it 
to find the OpenOffice executable.

We followed instructions from the wiki 
(http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Coversheets) and installed everything. I can add 
coversheets to the admin interface under “manage records”, and they are 
added to the task queue when the PDF is first requested. Everything seems to 
work except the part where it actually tries to generate and attach the 

Looking at the /eprints/var/OpenOffice.log file, I get “OpenOffice 
executable not found”, even though OpenOffice paths have been correctly set 
in the file /eprints/lib/cfg.d/openoffice.pl

Are we missing anything?

Running EPrints 3.3.13 on CentOS 7.

Thanks for your help!
