PDF Text Problem


#1

Hi there,
I’m very new at Omeka and am not a coder so apologies if I am missing something obvious. I installed PDF Text and it uploaded ok but when I went to install it this message came up:

  • The following error occurred while installing the PdfText plugin: The pdftotext command-line utility is not installed. pdftotext must be installed to install this plugin.

I had a look on the forum and the answers kind of lost me so I am wondering if there’s another way to word it or fix it? The host I am using is fastcomet. Sorry for the bother.
best,
Greg

Hi there,
Thanks for getting back to me. I’m not a programmer so had no joy trying to follow the instructions mentioned in the article. I wonder if you could direct me to where the files to be changed are to be found. Fastcomet is my host. Thanks again.
best,
Greg

Ask your hosting company to install the pdftotext utility and to enable command execution from php.
