Subject [greenstone-users] Problems with PDF files
Hi,

your pdf files are version 1.5 of pdf specification. The script that
transforms pdf to html under your greenstone supports version 1.4.
You can try to save your pdf files into an earlier version or use the
unknown plugin to handle your pdf files under greenstone.

Best regards
