Subject [greenstone-users] problems with importing/building
Hello all,

I recently installed Greenstone (on Linux) and have tried building a test collection using both the command line and GLI. Both times, I get the same problem when running the import.pl to build the collection.

When using the GLI, I first get a "No plugin expected to process file" dialog box to show up when I try dragging and dropping new files under the Gather tab. This happens regardless of the file type (gif, html, pdf) even though the Design tab indicates that I have those plugins. Do I need to somehow configure each plugin?

When I try to build the collection from the Create tab, or try to run import.pl from the command line, I get the following output:

Command: /home/agent/apache2/htdocs/gsdl/bin/script/import.pl -gli -language en -collectdir /home/agent/apache2/htdocs/gsdl/collect/ -removeold testcoll

I suspect that I'm making some sort of newbie mistake somewhere. If someone can tell me what is going wrong, I'd certainly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
