    Default where are my zimlets ?

    I'm currently evaluating zimbra and have installed zimbra 4.5.3 Open Source Edition on Ubuntu Edgy and everything seems to be working as expected apart from the zimlets.

    zmzimletctl shows me there are 5 zimlets available by default:
    Code:
    # zmzimletctl listzimlets
    Installed Zimlet files on this host:
            com_zimbra_date
            com_zimbra_email
            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search
            com_zimbra_url
    Installed Zimlets in LDAP:
            com_zimbra_date
            com_zimbra_email
            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search
            com_zimbra_url
    Available Zimlets in COS:
      default:
            com_zimbra_date
            com_zimbra_email
            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search
            com_zimbra_url
    and those are also visible in zimbraAdmin.

    But when logging in as a user, there is no zimlets section at all (only "folders" and "tags").
    The user is under the default cos.

    Also deploying new zimlets doesn't seem to work:
    When I try to deploy additional zimlets (e.g. google translator) I get a confirmation the zimlet was deployed successfully, but apparently it isn't:

    list available zimlets:
    Code:
    # zmzimletctl listzimlets

            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search
            com_zimbra_url
    Installed Zimlets in LDAP:
            com_zimbra_date
            com_zimbra_email
            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search

            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search
            com_zimbra_url
    deploy new zimlet:
    Code:
    # zmzimletctl deploy /opt/zimbra/zimlets/com_zimbra_gtranslator.zip
    [] INFO: Deploying on *****
    [] INFO: Deploy successful
    list again:
    Code:
    # zmzimletctl listzimlets
    Installed Zimlet files on this host:
            com_zimbra_date
            com_zimbra_email
            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search
            com_zimbra_url
    Installed Zimlets in LDAP:
            com_zimbra_date
            com_zimbra_email
            com_zimbra_phone
            com_zimbra_search

            com_zimbra_search
            com_zimbra_url
    According to this documentation this should be all for deploying a zimlet: http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?tit...%2C_Setting_Up

    Default ...

    I think you need to restart tomcat after deploying your zimlets:

    command: tomcat restart

    I restarted tomcat several times already, but to no avail.
    Even the whole system was rebooted in the meantime

    Default That's normal...

    None of those zimlets should appear in the overview pane at left. All they do is pattern-match on messages and contexts and add highlighting and tooltips and links to URLs, dates, etc.

    You can check to see if they're working by sending yourself a plaintext email with a URL or an email address in it. If it gets highlighted and has a mouseover, everything's working as expected.

    thanks, I'll test that, but shouldn't there be an empty zimlet section in the left pane then ?

    Also how do you explain that newly deployed zimlets are not shown anywhere (not via zmzimletctl, not in zimbraAdmin, not in the left pane for each user)
    while I get the message that everything went ok.

    I also tried to deploy zimlets through zimbraAdmin, but then I get the following error:
    Failed to deploy the zimlet!

    Deploying to server *****... failed

    What would be the point of having an empty section? The fact the section isn't there means they aren't deployed.

    You'll need to do a tomcat restart and the user may need to clear the browser cache and refresh the screen.

    Well what's the point of having an initial empty calendar then ?
    You have to start somewhere...

    That's what I did already several times (see my previous post)

    Default Zimlets deploy CLI vs WebAdmin

    I too have noticed that using the command line the zimlet will appear to be successfully deployed but it doesn't show up and when you try to deploy that same zimlet via the web interface you get the failure. My hunch is that the CLI does not successfully deploy the simlet to LDAP because of an error with the zimlet files and the WebAdmin is smarter about reporting the failure.

    Have you searched bugzilla for any problem like this? It's certainly working for me on CentOS4.4 & Zimbra 4.5.3, I can deploy via the admin ui or cli without problems. Is there any errors in the logs to indicate a failure? Unless Dan has anything to add I'd suggest filing it as a bug.

    Apparently there's something wrong with the zimlets on http://gallery.zimbra.com

    Because now I tried to deploy the same zimlet (i.e. com_zimbra_gtranslator.zip) from /opt/zimbra/zimlets-extra and that's working !
    (I just discovered that most if not all of the zimlets can also be found in that folder)

    Also the deployment of zimlets through the zimbraAdmin ui is working now.
