[EP-tech] Coversheet Plugin Help

Hi James,

So we are not cross purpose, please could you tell me which version of 
the coversheets plugin you are using.? Is it the one that can be 
currently downloaded from:


If not please could you tell me where it is from.? Not having the 
cfg/static/coversheets / directory in your local archive will be a 
problem.? You will also need to copy the variously numbered 
sub-directories from you live repository.

There does seem to be some confusion on the correct location for the 
stitchPDF scripts should go according to the coversheets wiki page [1].? 
I think $c->{archiveroot} . "/bin/tools/stitchPDFs " is the more 
appropriate location.? So it is probably better to move the script that 
change the command.? I will update the wiki page to that effect.

If you reinstate the coversheets directory as describe above, 
coversheets should start being applied but also I would expect an error 
id they were not.? The other things to sort out are making sure 
OpenOffice is running.? It is possible that something may still be at 
issue that does not cause the indexer task to fail and it "succeeds" to 
quickly for you to see in the event queue.? I would look in 
EPRINTS_PATH/var/indexer.log to see if you can see anything going on?
