Output of file command for a given odt file gives me

Composite Document File V2 Document, Cannot read section info. 

By searching on Google I found it a doc document and I installed unoconv to read it on linux(fedora). But when I run the command:

 unoconv -d document --format=odt file.doc

I get the following error:

unoconv: RuntimeException during import phase:Office probably died. Unsupported URL  Thumb.doc: "type detection failed"**. 

I am having all packages of libreoffice writer. So how do I open these kind of files on fedora?

  • Make sure you installed libreoffice from official Fedora repo correctly and your file isn't corrupted. – 炸鱼薯条德里克 Oct 25 '18 at 4:07
