13:00 owen Hi everyone
13:31 atz greets owen
13:37 paul hello all
15:50 paul broadcast : gitoyen (peering company) transmission failure in France. (& unreachable
15:50 paul sorry for the inconvenience
15:50 paul kados around ?
15:50 paul I have some bugs in my queue that you already have, but didn't have applied.
15:51 paul should I send them again ?
16:25 kados paul: I have them ... haven't tested them yet, but I will shortly
16:25 paul OK. i'll sent some new ones now
16:27 paul kados : sent 6 patches. Sorry if I sent some that you already have, but I don't think so.
16:33 kados paul++
20:23 tim When I try to upload patron image files in a zip archive, Koha 3 tells me the zip failed to unpack.  I'm on Debian Etch.  Is there something else I need to install to get this working?
20:24 cnighs tim: have you checked the error log for any more specific error messages?
20:28 gmcharlt tim: is the unzip command present on your server?  if not, do 'sudo apt-get install unzip'
20:30 tim I just tried installing unzip and it didn't help.
20:33 tim Opening /tmp/PJ69CyJ5QF/ failed! at /usr/share/koha/intranet/cgi​-bin/tools/ line 166
20:33 tim <> line 31842., referer:[…]
20:34 gmcharlt is there free space on /tmp?
20:35 tim yup
20:46 acmoore that "warn" statement on line 166 would really benefit from $!.
20:48 tim I just checked /tmp PJ69CyJ5QF and the images are in there.
20:48 gmcharlt what user owns the directory and files therein?
20:49 tim www-data
20:50 gmcharlt tim: did the zip file contain a file called idlink.txt or datalink.txt?
20:51 tim no.  just the images.
20:52 gmcharlt tim: there's your problem - the zip file needs to contain a file called datalink.txt or idlink.txt (either works)
20:52 gmcharlt that file serves to link each image file to the patron the picture belongs to
20:53 gmcharlt plain text file
20:53 gmcharlt one record per line
20:53 gmcharlt each line containing the patron barcode, followed by a comma, followed by the name of the image file
20:55 gmcharlt if you get it working after creating idlink.txt, please file a bug anyway - the error message needs to be improved, and the information about idlink.txt needs to be copied from the help page (where it's nice and invisible :/) to the upload page
20:55 acmoore whoah. That thing needs better error detection and warnings and help and such.
20:55 acmoore yeah, that needs a bugreport.
20:59 tim Oh yeah.  The help file.  I was thinking it was like my current setup where I just name the file with the partons card number and it would work.
20:59 gmcharlt tim: no (although actually, that's a rather good idea)
21:00 tim That's how we do it on our 2.2 system.
21:05 tim I'm so used to things having "no help on this topic" that I don't even think of trying the help.
21:32 kados tim: do you have access to the 3.0 manual?
21:33 kados tim: if not, send an email to nicole DOT engard AT liblime DOT com and ask for access
21:33 kados tim: lots of more up to date info there
21:33 kados tim: the online help hasn't been re-written for 3.0 yet
21:34 tim Where's it at?  Is it something that's not included in kohadocs?
21:39 atz tim: her current work is in google docs
21:41 tim Thanks guys.  I'll check that out.
