    Default Uploading fonts to BI Server. This type of file is not compatible

    Hi all,
    I don't know if this question belongs to this forum or the BI Server forum, I'm posting it here since I'm finding this problem trying to upload the examples of the book Learning Pentaho CTools.
    OS: Ubuntu 14.04
    Pentaho CE BIServer: 6.1.0.1-196

    The book comes with code samples and in these samples there is a folder with fonts to upload as resources to the css file. The fonts folder usually contains for each font type 4 files:
    • opensans-bold.eot
    • opensans-bold.svg
    • opensans-bold.ttf
    • opensans-bold.woff


    The thing is, when I try to upload them to the server, I only can upload the .svg, when I try to upload the other 3 files I get the error:
    Code:
    Upload Unsuccessful. Really tried, but this type of file is not compatible
    (I have translated the error since it shows in Spanish):

    There's no error message in catalina.out

    The fonts are referenced in the .css file of the Dashboard, and catalina.out is showing these error messages when I open the Dashboard:
    Code:
    ERROR [ResourcesApi] resource not found:home/my.user/My Path/fonts/opensans-light.ttf
    Is there a way to upload this files?

    Yes, but you need to tweak the configuration files. By default, you cannot upload those file types to the repository.

    Check here: http://diethardsteiner.github.io/bis...5-Changes.html (search for the section titled "Using some Exotic file types?")
