Subject [greenstone-users] gli-applet

 I am working on installing Greenstone 2.74 and customizing the user interface for my senior capstone project. I have Greenstone running on a server that is running RedHat Enterprise Linux 4. Everything seems to work except the gli-applet. The applet loads, I am able to launch the Greenstone Librarian Interface and enter my user name and password into the dialog box. That seems to  authenticate okay. None of the buttons on the GLI interface are active except the help button and the Gatherer, I am able to navigate the entire help system and the Workspace. The three window controls are also active.  The File menu and Edit menu are inactive. I have installed the gli-client on another computer and that can access Greenstone running on the server and create new collections. I am in the all-collections-editor and administrator groups. The only permissions that I have changed is to set collect to 777 and tmp to 777, but if the GLI client works then I assume permissions are not the problem.

I have installed, uninstalled, and re-installed Greenstone many times now on both Linux and W2k. It takes me about 15-20 minutes start to finish, but I can't get passed this point.
Why are the controls on the gli applet inactive? Have I overlooked something in the documentation?

Thank you for your help,
