Hi there!

Your pdf needs to be in a .zip archive. The .zip is what you'll upload. For a PDF, you'll want 'Launch with' to be set to 'DEFAULT APPLICATION'.

You might want to test if your PDF opens with mupdf as users with older images are likely to have this as their default PDF reader; Xpdf should be on the newest Raspbian image. If your PDF doesn't open in mupdf (as many haven't), you might want to leave a note in the project description reading along the lines of "Requires Xpdf to open" to make this clear, or you could make an install script which installs Xpdf and creates the file association for it.

The upload process is documented here.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions. :)

My apologies - I'm not sure I understand. What says "No such file or directory"?

Yeah - it sounds like something's not quite set up properly.

What's the name of your project? I'm afraid the earliest I'll be able to look at it is Monday (I can't get the information I need at the weekend), so I'll try to get back to you then. :)

Hi again!

The problem appears to me that for the project build which is currently active, the file to launch is set to 'berryserver' whereas I believe it's meant to be 'BerryWebserver.pdf'.

Having chatted with a colleague, it looks as if you've uploaded a new .zip file and amended this, but the project hasn't been built since then. Whenever you upload a new .zip, you need to hit the 'Build' in your project's Platforms/Installers area as this is what makes the new upload become the active & available build. :)

Hope that helps,
