Hi all,
I am setting up our own galaxy instance here. We'd like to use fastqc, but I have run into a problem implementing it. Any suggestions would be most welcome, as to what might be wrong.

1. fastqc runs fine outside of galaxy. But when I try the same file inside galaxy, I get errors.

2. I can look to the shell script generated by galaxy inside ~/galaxy-dist/database/pbs/ . When I run that python command inside the sh script, generated by galaxy, to execute fastqc -- it works fine, without errors.

Therefore, it seems as if there is some sort of permission or path problem when galaxy runs fastqc. I have fastqc in the main path, and also installed it in the "jars" directory where the fastqc tool looks for it. However, I still can't understand this, since when outside of galaxy, I can run the python command generated by galaxy successfully.

 The output/error inside galaxy is here:

Any clues/advice most appreciated!
