Linux - AutoXchange not running

If AutoXchange is not running when executing on Linux, the most common issue is that AutoXchange does not have permissions to execute from the install folder:

sudo chmod 777 /cadviewer-conversion-server/converters/ax2022/linux/ax2022_L64_22_12_70

and the output folder used for file-conversions needs to have write permission set for all users:

sudo chmod 777 /cadviewer-conversion-server/converters/files

Verify AX2022 is running by running the command to echo the parameter interface. It will either any missing libraries or display all parameter commands:

/cadviewer-conversion-server/converters/ax2022/linux/ax2022_L64_22_12_70 -?

Verify AX2022 can perform a conversion, by adding a temp AutoCAD file (myfile.dwg) to the /converters/ax2022/linux/ folder and run a sample conversion:

/cadviewer-conversion-server/converters/ax2022/linux/ax2022_L64_22_12_70 -i=myfile.dwg -o=myfile.svg -f=svg -model -trace
