I have downloaded the zipped file and unzipped it in the /moodle folder. I have also verified manually whether all the files were in their respective folders or not. Everything seems to be fine but still i m unable to get 'PI' symbol .
Running moodle 1.9.7 on vista.
Attempting to use DragMath v0.7.8.1.
Kindly someone help me.
The install does place a variety of other files in your Moodle, and you can use the URL to check that dragmath itself is working, as in http://fqdn/lib/editor/htmlarea/plugins/DragMath/demo.html
I understand that I it is not the Pi symbol and also it has nothing to do with my OS.
What all files need to be placed and where should I place them in the Moodle?
Dragmath is working, this I checked using URL as you suggested. But I m unable to use it from Moodle.
Your first post suggested that button for dragmath not there. You also confirmed that all files in proper place. Dragmath overwrites three files, so using the zip provided should overwrite them, BUT, I have been told tham some windows users unzip and then tell their unzipped NOT to overwrite, which results in not overwriting the files and hence, not making dragmath available via htmlarea.
At any rate am not sure if new icon still not present and you have not indicated you flushed cache. Or is new icon there but not invoking? Please provide specifics of what you mean by "not working".
Lets assume that I have done nothing and start from scratch. What should I do to integrate Dragmath with Moodle ?
I am particularly interested in your comment: making sure that your unzip overwrites the three pre-existing files.
If I look closely at the .zip file, all files are extracted to a folder /DragMath in the root of /usr/moodle. No files are placed in lib/htmlarea (or anywhere else for that matter)
So if it creates a new folder DragMath and extracts all the files into it ... what files is it going to overwrite?
For reference, the zip file I have downloaded is DragMath_v0.7.8.1.zip from SourceForge.
Am I missing something?
if you follow the simple instructions that Marc has written to docs http://docs.moodle.org/en/DragMath_equation_editor and read also http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=13&rid=1454&filter=1 you don't load files from SourceForge if you want to use Dragmath with moodle. You can download the latest version for moodle 1.9.X directly from http://tracker.moodle.org/secure/attachment/18040/dragmathintegration_v0.7.8.1_final.zip
When you unzip that package there is a folder lib and inside lib folder 2 subfolders: DragMath and editor
The latter one overwrites a couple of files of editor (htmlarea) and the files of dragmath plugin itself are in folder DragMath...
I came accross DragMath via their own website so I simply downloaded their version via their site and then followed their instructions ... didn't realise there was another version.
