I use google-apps. I can up- & download there. Everything's fine.
But when I reach into google with the filepicker of moodle 2 dev, all the downloaded files are damaged. Even *.pdf cannot be opened. Filesize and filename seems to be ok. But Word, Excel, Adobe and so on say it's damaged.
Is there any word on this issue? I am having what sounds like the same problem. On Mozilla if I download the files I can get the rft files to open but the .ppt and xls files open in powerpoint and excel with errors. In Internet Explorer I can't get the files to open at all. My guess is because of its close tie in with those programs.
I am using 'add resource > file' function in Moodl2.0 (Build: 20101214) to add these files to the course.
Any ideas on what I am doing wrong here?
Let's go ahead and file an issue in the tracker. I'm not exactly sure what is supposed to be happening. I know that when I added a file from GoogleDocs it appears to save it to the resource but the link is to draftfiles and I am wondering if that is correct. When I tried to open a PowerPoint or Excel spreadsheet, it told me the file moved and gave me the link to GoogleDocs but then I had to authenticate to see it. It looks like there is some room for improvement or tweaking here. Peace - Anthony
