As it says: Directory not empty, perhaps you could look in the finder
or terminal to see what is still in there. I actually expect that
there is a Finder-specific file or folder there, which would mean that
the actual problem has nothing to do with the pdf itself, but just with
a difference between MacOSX and Ubuntu.

Best wishes,

If that is true there is probably at least a file .DS_Store present on
Mac OS X (which Finder won't show).

2011-03-17 Thread Raymond LeClair
A Lulu developer was able to find out that the original error was coming out of 
the PDFLib library:
{error_type:PDFlibException,error_value:Handle parameter or option of 
type 'page' has bad value 0}

Does that mean anything to anyone?

[NTG-context] Creation of PDF Oddly Differs on Ubuntu and Mac OS X

2011-03-16 Thread Raymond LeClair
All,

I am using ConTeXt to create a PDF for upload to Lulu.com.

I am getting the following exception using the LuLu Python publication API on 
Mac OS X 10.6.6 with Python 2.6.6 or 2.7.1:
ServiceError: Couldn't create Lulu project. '{error_type: 
LFilesystemException, error_value: shell command failed: rm -rf 
\'/opt/stable/stable/htdocs/items/volume_69/1029/10290657\' 21\\nrm: 
cannot remove directory 
`/opt/stable/stable/htdocs/items/volume_69/1029/10290657/1/cover\': 
Directory not empty, HTTPErrorCode: 500}'

Oddly, the exact same code works fine on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Python 2.6.5.

I have track down the issue to the difference between the _cover_ PDF created 
on Ubuntu with ConTeXt  ver: 2009.11.26 16:28 MKIV and on Mac OS X with ConTeXt 
 ver: 2010.05.24 13:05 MKIV, although the cover PDF generated on either 
platform appears correctly in Preview.

I have posted an archive that illustrates the issue at 
http://www.synterein.com/lulu_context_issues/lulu_context_issue_01.zip

Any wisdom out there? What should I look for next?
Ray.

Re: [NTG-context] Creation of PDF Oddly Differs on Ubuntu and Mac OS X

2011-03-16 Thread Raymond LeClair
All,

I could have phrased my question better ... here is another attempt:

I use ConTeXt to generate a PDF for upload using the command context filename 
on either Mac OS X or Ubuntu. I have installed ConTeXt by installing a TeX Live 
distribution on each platform. The command completes without error on either 
platform. The PDFs open in Preview (a Mac OS X application for viewing PDFs) 
and appear to be correct, regardless of on which platform the PDFs were 
created. However, the upload of the PDF created on Mac OS X fails, while the 
upload of the PDF created on Ubuntu works.

So, there is something different about these two PDFs which I cannot determine 
by opening them in an application for viewing PDFs. But I do not know what is 
different, or how to find out.

I have posted an archive that illustrates the issue at 
http://www.synterein.com/lulu_context_issues/lulu_context_issue_01.zip

Any and all ideas would be appreciated.

Ray.
