Ticket #810 (new annoyingness)

Opened 9 years ago

PDFbox archive files invalid

Reported by: gnickers Owned by: nobody
Priority: moderate Milestone: Possible 2.88 Release
Component: ExtraPackages Severity: enhancement
Keywords: PDF-box Cc:


Following the URL that displays when Greenstone GLI runs without the PDFbox extension installed, a user goes to the TRAC site and follows this path:

Browse Source, gs2-extensions,pdf-box,trunk

two archive files are listed:

Pdf-box-java.zip (a zip archive for windows users) Pdf-box-java.tar.gz (a zipped tarball)

While they are supposed to be 9.1 mb in size the actual files when downloaded are only 8kb in size and neither are valid archives

This means the pdf-box extension cannot be used. The workaround is for users to convert all pdfs to version 1.4 before importing to greenstone.
