Subject [greenstone-users] Collector PDF Encoding Error
Hey Guys,
 
I've beeen trying to create a collection using the collector but keep getting this message:
 
 The collection could not be built as it contains no data. Make sure that at least one of the directories or files you specified on the source data page exists and is of a type or (in the case of a directory) contains files of a type, that Greenstone can process.
 
When I try to create the collection through the command line I am able to, but get encoding warnings saying that the PDF files I'm using are not encoded in UTF-8, however they are fine to be processed.
 
I've been trying to find out how I can get things to work through the Collector by using switches for the plugins but there's really nothing of help out there.
 
The directory has PDF files in it and I can GSDL can read it without a problem since I can see the files being read by the status page.
 
I have to get the Collector working to let my clients update collections.
 
Any ideas? Thanks!
