I have had contact with Webfaction HD.
Their response was to symlink it to my person bin folder.
[josesapelli@web452 ~]$  ln -s ~/webapps/node/bin/lessc /home/josesapelli/bin
[josesapelli@web452 ~]$ ^C
[josesapelli@web452 ~]$ which lessc
[josesapelli@web452 ~]$

deleted and created a new odoo database, but again.. this didnt work.

Isnt there a way to compile all the less manually and then upload it somehow?

Cheers Roland,
does make sense.
However webfaction doesnt allow to sudo, so of course i get a permission denied

[josesapelli@web452 ~]$ ln -s ~/webapps/node/bin/lessc /usr/bin
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/bin/lessc': Permission denied

Is there a way to alter  odoo search path?

On my Mac OS (yosemite) installation, I discovered that lessc was installed in /usr/local/bin which evidently is not in the odoo search path.

A) verify that lessc is installed:

$ which lessc

B) If so, link it to /usr/bin:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/lessc /usr/bin

worked for me ...

i Jordi,
I did find the github issues, but that isnt my problem.

like i mentioned, installing the blog module (or any other other less using module) doesnt solve the problem.

The whole admin side of odoo is malformed as well.
So somehow odoo can not find/execute lessc still... even though the order of installing the dependencies was right.
