Installation issues

1.- When installation evoReports in Linux servers you can get this error:

"net.sf.jasperreports.engine.util.JRFontNotFoundException: Font 'Arial' is not available to the JVM. See the Javadoc for more details."

To solve this message in Linux servers you´ll have to install Microsoft core fonts. You can do it this way:

First get the microsoft core fonts. In Ubuntu 12.04 this package is called: ttf-mscorefonts-installer

When already installed fonts will be available in: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts copy all the ttf files to your JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/fonts

 

2.- As we overwrite some alfresco files you have to aply amp with -force option. Please try again to know if works now.

apply_amps.sh -force
