Hello Alok,

>>> The requested URL /collect/1995/index/assoc/HASH9299.dir/doc.pdf
When you view the collection in the web browser, and select one of the
browsing classifiers such as Titles or Filenames (these buttons for
browsing will be located next to the Search button in the navigation
bar), does it at least list the html version of this item? Can you view
the converted document or is that also not available along with the
original pdf document?

1. Actually, pdftohtml should already be in the bin/windows (or
bin/linux) directory that is located inside your Greenstone installation
directory. That is the version of pdftohtml that will be used.

goes through some suggestions as to what can be done to work around such

The sample documents that are used during this tutorial are linked to at
the top right of the page. It doesn't take long to do, so do try it out.
When you work through this tutorial are there any points where things
failed for you?

Regards and good luck,
