Perview doc, docx and xls not working


all my file have a Thumbnail preview. Only MS Files. Installed LibreOffice. So odt would get also preview. As Online Office i use Onlyoffice.

In cofig.puhp MS office is included.

Any Ideas?


same here, i folllow the instuction at the link. But no perview with MS Office files. Libre Office is installed

Propably the dconf bug:

unfortunately i still have the problem. Does it work for you? What could be the reason?

I have same problem. NO SOLUTION ???

The .cache folder can’t be created. It need to be created manually as described in the github link above.

hmm i thin no, doc and xls works fine, only docx and xlsx have no preview. and wen i ran preview:generate-all -vvv there is no error

I managed to fix that by installing libreoffice, default-jre and libreoffice-java-common!
Easiest way to make it work for every update is to add it in a Dockerfile like so:
(this one is a modified version from here: docker/Dockerfile at master · nextcloud/docker · GitHub)
