Subject Default ocale in headless mode
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2012 13:16:16 GMT

I'm running OOo in headless mode on a Linux instance, using a command much

$ soffice.bin
-env:UserInstallation=file:///var/data/alfresco/oouser -nologo -headless
-nofirststartwizard -nocrashrep -norestore

It's generating document previews for us. Unfortunately the previews
generated appear to be in an en_US locale, such as for Excel documents
uploaded with a date in. Explicitly setting the locale for a cell in Excel
is respected by OOo, this is only for the default case. We'd like to use
en_GB and the output of $ echo $LANG is en_GB.UTF-8.

How could I set the default locale for OOo?
