[EP-tech] Re: Coversheets Bazaar plugin problems



No problem Stewart, appreciate the help!

yes my version of OpenOffice.pm definitely has user not actual_user. ?But then again, the eprints user having difficulty with openoffice would explain a lot!

Apparently, we were responsible for the initial change to actual_user in a previous attempt to get the OO plugin working.

?

Sorry for the red-herring.

We also had problems with eprints user starting up LibreOffice.? The following worked for us:

?

lib/plugins/EPrints/Plugin/OpenOffice.pm (line 392):

?

Changed

?

return EPrints::Config::get( "actual_user" );

?

To

?

return EPrints::Config::get( "user" );

Interesting - we are running Centos but I shall see if that module helps, as coversheets still isnt working as far as I can tell.

?

It is also saying?Failed to stop OpenOffice when I try to do an openoffice stop via System Tools.?

?

openoffice.pid and .log are in var, though there are no entries in .log

?

thanks for your help so far,

Strangely enough we were wrestling with this plugin yesterday.

?

We found that it required CPAN module OpenOffice::OODoc before we could get it to work on Ubuntu.

When you request a PDF that needs a coversheet, it queues an event to add the coversheet, so next time you request it, you get a coversheeted copy.

?

Unfortunately, some browsers cache the PDFs &#8211; so adding a querystring helps e.g. &#8230;.blah.pdf?A=1 &#8230;.blah.pdf?A=2

?

You can check on the filesystem that the PDF are being created too.

?

I also had various issues with OpenOffice running/not running &#8211; check in ~/var/ for openoffice.pid and the openoffice.log.

?

HTH,

John

Got it, thanks John and Seb,

?

? I've run a couple of test uploads and it does not seem to be appending (prepending?) the coversheet at all to any pdfs. I've used Sebs test odt file and thrown in a logo for good measure.?

?

? Cannot find any obvious log to see where things might be going wrong, no errors when I epadmin reload.?

?

Was there anything else you had to set up to make it go?

?

If you&#8217;re on a new-ish version of EPrints, take a look under &#8216;Manage Records&#8217;.

You should be able to see the Coversheets dataset in there&#8230;

?

This is also something I&#8217;m looking at.

The problem I&#8217;m looking into is the metadata of the resulting covered PDF.

I can set metadata in the Coversheet, but when it&#8217;s appended, the resultant PDF loses it.

I&#8217;m not sure whether it&#8217;s the ODF to PDF that&#8217;s an issue, or the splicing of two PDFs.

?

Cheers,

John

Subject: [EP-tech] Coversheets Bazaar plugin problems

?

Hello all,

?

? I'm trying to get the coversheets plugin from the bazaar to work. It states that?

?

Coversheets are ready to be used on your system. To add templates go to the Admin page, under 'Config Tools'.?

?

? and we have openoffice installed, pdftk etc but there is nothing appearing under config tools, no options when e.g. uploading a new pdf.?

?

Any suggestions on what to try, or at least what it should look like when it works??

?

thanks,
