Hi Doug,

Sorry to hear you've been having trouble with the language pack. I assume
you are installing it on a non-Windows machine? We used the new
InstallShield program to create the language pack installer, and it seems
to have a few problems on non-Windows platforms which we hope will be
sorted out soon.

The language pack has an installer because adding the language interfaces
isn't quite as simple as unpacking some files -- you also need to edit the
Greenstone main.cfg file to register the language, list its macrofiles, and
possibly register encodings.

All the language interfaces are always available from CVS, or I can easily
create a tar file containing them if you would prefer. (You'll need to edit
the main.cfg file manually to install them, however.)

All the best,
