Subject [greenstone-users] Failure to convert - no plugins work with web install, cygwin and ActiveState preinstalled
Hi,
 
I installed greenstone on a system with the following characteristics:
- apache pre-installed
- cygwin installed
- ActiveState perl installed (dominates over cygwin perl in the path)
- greenstone web installation
 
I can build collections both via the web interface and via GLI, but none of my
files get parsed correctly. In the web interface I get errors like ...
 
   030918Proposalsarehkerv001.doc: WordPlug failed to convert to HTML
   111_03_de.pdf: PDFPlug failed to convert to HTML
   ...
 
whereas GLI shows me some more detailed information:
 
   import.pl> Converting 1248234.pdf to HTML format
   import.pl> Unrecognized escape p passed through at C:Program Filesgsdlbinscript/gsConvert.pl line 644.
   import.pl> Can't spawn "c:/cygwin/usr/bin/bash.exe": No such file or directory at C:Program Filesgsdlbinscript/gsConvert.pl line 658.
 
Two questions:
 
- does anyone understands what is happening?
- is there any way to switch on detailed debugging in the web-interface?
 
I mentioned all the installed stuff, because I assume, that somehow the internal perl, cygwin and ActiveState perl are getting mixed up.
