Problems with "Personal" commentary module
In the "Personal" window, when I choose "Edit"-->"Open in editor", the text editor window opens, but when I type something and then save it, it does not appear in the "Personal" window.

I am having similar problems trying to edit in BibleTime (see my post in that forum). It may or may not be related.

I am using Ubuntu 10.10.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

Re: Problems with "Personal" commentary module
Do you know where on the files ystem your personal module is located? Perhaps it is write-protected.

Re: Problems with "Personal" commentary module
Data files seem to be in .sword directory. The "Personal" config file is in .sword/mods.d directory. The conf file says:

[Personal]
DataPath=./modules/comments/rawfiles/personal/
ModDrv=RawFiles
Description=Personal Commentary
About=This module allows you to store your own commentary.
LCSH=Bible--Commentaries.
SwordVersionDate=2002-01-01

InstallSize=691798


However there is no file in modules/comments/rawfiles/personal.

All these directories are owned by the user and have read/write/executable permissions as user attributes.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: Problems with "Personal" commentary module
So I manually created a "personal" directory in the rawfiles directory.

I tested this out in BibleTime and right clicked on "Personal" (under Commentaries). "Edit" was still greyed out so I clicked on "About". It told me:


Version unknown


Markup unknown
Location /home/john/.sword/modules/comments/rawfiles/personal/
Language English
LCSH Bible--Commentaries.
Writable no


About:
This module allows you to store your own commentary.


I even did a chmod on the directory to make it 777 and still the program tells me "Writeable No".

Any ideas why it thinks the directory is not writeable?

Thanks!

Re: Problems with "Personal" commentary module
Interesting. I reinstalled the module and now it works. I am not sure why it didn't in the first place. Go figure.

Thanks for the suggestions!
