Hi Cameron

No I was building from my company local pdf library on our file/document
server.

I have notes From Katherine which seems it whats happening on my setup -
Thus reading the doc's supplied via the url.

*********************** Katherine Reply ********************************

Looks like one of your emails it looked like the PDFs were not importing
because the text could not be extracted. If you set the -verbosity
argument to import.pl to 4, you should see a message to that effect.

Have a look at the PDF tutorial to get an idea about what you can do
with PDFs whose text cannot be extracted.
http://greenstone.sourceforge.net/wiki/gsdoc/tutorial/en/enhanced_pdf.htm

Alternatively, you can process these failed PDF's with UnknownPlug:
Add

UnknownPlug -process_ext pdf -file_format PDF -mime_type application/pdf
-srcicon iconpdf

to your plugin list after PDFPlug. Any pdf files that fail to be
processed by PDFPlug will be captured by UnknownPlug. UnknownPlug will
not do any processing on the files, so no metadata/text will be
extracted.


******************************* End of Email Blurb

Cheers
