My First Gnowsis Experience

(I'm using Suse Linux, with a Gnome desktop...)

  1. Follow DevelopingFirstSteps ...
  2. Checkout many gnowsis projects into eclipse... and I mean MANY... this doubled the number of eclipse projects i had.
  3. Start gnowsis... it WORKS!
  4. Configure, setup hostname etc. (Wizard here? We can guess hostname, and have sensible defaults for other things)
  5. Add FileSystem adaptor... (sensible default URI again?)

First Task

Link a paper to a node representing it's conference.

  1. Open the FileSystem datasource... hmm... the user interface is ugly. And broken - the address bar is missing... (i'll attach a screenshot)
  2. Find the PDF if my papers - define a ESWC06 Wikiword for this
  3. This apparently does nothing - it doesn't appear anywhere else... and there is no Wiki where i can view it.
  4. Leo tells me to click the "Link" button (which is black) to accomplish what I want...
  5. Go back to miniquire, the PDF is listed at the bottom
  6. Define a new concept... mess it up, write something in the search box... Leo tells me to click "new", then write something in the dialog. Nothing happens. Clear search box, and try again, and it works.
  7. click "link to concept", thinking it works (it doesn't, but i didn't realise)

Second Task

Link an email about the same conference to the same node.

  1. Download xpi from, install in firefox and thunderbird.
  2. Check out YET another project in eclipse.
  3. Restart gnowsis, configure....
  4. Try to add the email Service, BUT the add dialog wont let me select a directory... clicking add will only change to that directory. Writing it in the "selection" box does the same. Luckily the email service was actually already there...
  5. tbc.
