Hello Julian,

The db2txt and txt2db utilities are located in the gsdl/bin/linux/ directory. The whereis command only searches a certain set of directories of which the gsdl tree is not a part of. You can use the find command the next time you want to find a file: (read the find manpage for more info)

Ex: find /usr/local/gsdl -name db2txt

Also, after logging into your Greenstone server, cd to your Greenstone directory and run setup.bash or

cd /usr/local/gsdl
source setup.bash

That way you can run db2txt or txt2db without having to type it's whole directory path.

Is it possible that the db2txt and txt2db utilities were not downloaded
automatically at the time I set up Greenstone 2.72 (Linux)? I can't get
those commands to work and my terminal, when I run whereis txt2db for
example, comes up blank!
If that is the case how can I get those two utilities?
