We would like to use LibreSource for some of our courses at the Vxj University in Sweden. Unfortunatelly the installation is not that easy/well documented and we did after 3 days of work not succeed to get it up and running. The last error is something about a missing skin. Can somebody please help, and tell me where I find detailed installation information. There seems to be some installation manual in a private area I can not access with my account. Some hints?

Hello, thank you for your help. We fixed to install and bootstrab LibreSource

Our first problem was, that we used the wrong Jonas version (4.4.3) instead of the recommended one 4.3.4.

Further the ThirdParty libraries provided on the project page did not work. We received a new compilation, which did that trick.

After this we could start LibreSource.

The bootstraping failed first, because we needed to clean the database and use the database root instead of the system root account.

Now we are about to create our first project, and we are stuck with some Permission denied error. The documentation (LSTN02QuickStartIssue0_4.pdf) is unfortunately not complete and the chapter about how to create a new project is empty.

Does anybody have an idea, where to find more information about setting up projects, creating users and user groups, and adjusting the template, to show our university logo and colors and so on?

Thank you in advance.

Try to use the JOnAS administration page ( to undeploy and redeploy the EAR.

Please descirbe the exact message with the exception if one occurs.

You may have a skin problem when JOnAS can't connect to postresql. Check the postgresql server, your datasource and the jdbc driver.
