    Question deploy zimlets not happening

    I placed gtranslator, collector, and starexpert_save_EN in the /opt/zimbra/zimlets dir, then using zimbra user did the zmzimletctl deploy zimlet.zip name commands.

    received back:
    INFO: deploying on sevrname.domain.com
    INFO: deploy initiated. (check servers mailbox.log for status)

    But, never see the 3 zimlets in the adminUI when selecting the zimlets icon.

    not sure if it is safe to view mailbox.log for fear of a corruption of the log file.

    Any idea of the exact CLI to view the mailbox.log file (safely)?

    Any idea why I am not seeing the zimlets now on the admin UI?

    In one terminal while you deploy in another you can simply:
    tail -f /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log

    Does any of this make sense?

    [zimbra@java zimlets]$ ls
    Zimlet_Starxpert_Save_EN.zip com_zimbra_collector.zip com_zimbra_email.zip com_zimbra_local.zip com_zimbra_url.zip
    com_zimbra_cert_manager.zip com_zimbra_date.zip com_zimbra_gtranslator.zip com_zimbra_phone.zip com_zimbra_ymemoticons.zip


    [zimbra@java zimlets]$ zmzimletctl deploy com_zimbra_collector.zip
    [] INFO: Deploying on java.domain.org
    [] INFO: Deploy initiated. (check the servers mailbox.log for the status)

    Mike, I sent this one for a support ticket, as we are in need of these 3 zimlets deployed. If you or anyone else knows more/have seen this, please advise.
    The zimlets are in the right directory, and I used the right commands.
    -Thanks in advance.

    For StarXpert_save_EN it is normal that it doesn't work.
    Simply because this is a zip file, but it is not the zimlet. The zimlet is the com_starxpert_save.zip file inside StarXpert_save_EN.

    i faced this problem, You have to change the permission to 777 of the zimbra path then it will work,

    when you create a new zip file use the follow these steps:
    1) go inside the folder that contains zimlet files
    2)zip ../zimlet_name.zip *

    The recommendation in the previous post ought to be stickied, IMO.

    Also, deploying zimlets through the admin GUI can generate this error, too. I was getting it last night on a simple zimlet I wrote. However the admin GUI worked fine with a zimlet downloaded from the gallery, as long as the original zipfile was intact. However if I unzipped the zimlet and rezipped it before deploying over the GUI, I'd get the error.‡

    I wound up preparing my zimlet (assuming contents are in zimletdirectory) by

    cd zimletdirectory
    chmod 777 *
    zip ../zimletdirectory.zip *
    chmod 777 ../zimletdirectory.zip [may not be needed]

    Then I used the command line while logged in as the zimbra user.

    I'm guessing I could have used the GUI once the permissions on the zimlet contents were set properly.

    ‡ Further detail: I downloaded the zimlet from the Gallery using Safari 3.2.1 under Mac OS 10.4. Since Safari auto-triggers an unzip, I rezipped the zimlet by selecting the folder and using File:Create Archive. When that didn't work, I re-downloaded the zimlet by ctrl-clicking and "Download linked file", which bypasses the auto-unzip.
