We've blogged how to setup Aeroo engine in OpenERP7 here, one of the most visited blogs!
We have ourselves contributed the highest for the Aeroo Reports. Its a pleasure that our contribution has been noted here and it will be a helpful thing for the whole Odoo community!
As Luke writes, following are the steps for Aeroo reports to be setup in Odoo!
Ubuntu 14.04 Aeroo Reports installation method:
#0 sudo apt-get install git
#1 sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
#2 sudo apt-get install python-genshi python-cairo python-lxml
#3 sudo apt-get install libreoffice-script-provider-python
#4 sudo mkdir /opt/aeroo
#5 cd /opt/aeroo
#6 sudo git clone https://github.com/aeroo/aeroolib.git
#7 cd /opt/aeroo/aeroolib
#8 sudo python setup.py install
Install AerooDOCS (see: https://github.com/aeroo/aeroo_docs/wiki/Installation-example-for-Ubuntu-14.04-LTS for original post):
#9 sudo apt-get install python3-pip
#10 sudo pip3 install jsonrpc2 daemonize
#11 cd /opt/aeroo
#12 sudo git clone https://github.com/aeroo/aeroo_docs.git
#13 sudo python3 /opt/aeroo/aeroo_docs/aeroo-docs start -c /etc/aeroo-docs.conf
#14 sudo ln -s /opt/aeroo/aeroo_docs/aeroo-docs /etc/init.d/aeroo-docs
#15 sudo update-rc.d aeroo-docs defaults
#16 sudo service aeroo-docs start
[ ! ] If you encounter and error "Unable to lock on the pidfile while trying #16 just restart your server (sudo shutdown -r now) and try #16 again after reboot.
Install Odoo from Source:
#17 cd /tmp
#18 sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/odoo-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh
#19 sudo sh odoo_install.sh
#20 restart the server (sudo shutdown -r now)
Install Aeroo Reports:
#21 sudo apt-get install python-cups
#22 cd /opt/odoo/custom
#23 sudo git clone -b master https://github.com/aeroo/aeroo_reports.git
After following the (above) steps in this guide you should have Aeroo Reports installed correctly on your server for Ubuntu 14.04 and Odoo 8.0. You'll just need to create a database and install the required Aeroo reports modules you need for that database.
[ ! ] Do not have aeroo_report_sample in your addons directory or you will get an error message when updating module list:
Warning! Unmet python dependencies! No module named cups
Install report_aeroo module in Odoo database:
#24 Go to Settings >> Users >> Administrator in the backend of Odoo
#25 Tick the box next to 'Technical Features' and Save, then refresh your browser window.
#26 Go to Settings >> Update Modules List > Update
#27 Go to Settings >> Local Modules > Search for: Aeroo
#28 Install report_aeroo
#29 You'll be confronted with an installation wizard, click: Continue >> Choose Simple Authentication from the Authentication dropdown list, and add username and password: anonymous
[ ! ] You can change the username and password in: /etc/aeroo-docs.conf if required.
#30 Click Apply and Test
At #30 you will see an error message in the AerooDOCS configuration wizard as follows:
Failure! Connection to DOCS service was not established or convertion to PDF unsuccessful!
argument of type 'instancemethod' is not iterable
Even though this error message is showing, the aeroo_reports module seems to be functioning ok on the surface. I have been able to install product_catalog_aeroo_report [https://github.com/ingadhoc/odoo-addons/tree/8.0/product_catalog_aeroo_report] and it seems to be functioning great for printing out custom reports like product pricelists by category and pricelist to ODS and ODT formats.
We must say thank to Alistek for the great effort and also to the other contributors
Long live Odoo Community!
