Hello,

I'm using ooffice writer through its API in python (with pyuno module), and it is working fine. I aim to create a tool generating documents by collecting information into a database. I don't need any GUI on my openoffice, and I would like to have my openoffice running onto a Linux server without X server.
It is possible? If it is, how to do it?
If it is not, do you have any idea why?

Thank you very much for your answer.
Regards.

OOo always needs a X server. But xvfb will suffice: http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=11890

OpenOffice.org 2.3.0+ Linux does not require an X server (not even Xvfb) if you installed the headless RPM package and use the -headless option.

I found this while writing Batch command line file conversion with PyODConverter which may be helpful to some.
