    Exclamation How to get the Ctools

    Want to install the CTools? This post is for you.


    Update: For version 5.0 please use this instructions: http://pedroalves-bi.blogspot.pt/201...lable-cdf.html


    1. Using a stable version:

    Go to http://ctools.webdetails.org/ and use the links to the installers


    2. Using ctools installer:

    Read this blog post for detailed instructions. If you use windows, in the end there's a link to another blog that explains how to setup ctools-installer with cygwin


    3. Using pentaho marketplace:


    In pentaho 4.8 you can just click the marketplace icon and you'll be all set!

    If you're using CE, it's one of the buttons on the main toolbar.

    hi Pedro


    I've installed CTools according to your tutorial, I use pentaho 5.0, however the CDE Dashboard does not work; in Pentaho.log I find the Next error:

    2014-02-10 15:03:53,145 ERROR [org.pentaho.platform.util.logging.Logger] misc-class org.pentaho.platform.plugin.services.pluginmgr.DefaultPluginManager: PluginManager.ERROR_0015 - Plugin cdc loaded, but post-load processing failed
    java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.pentaho.platform.engine.core.system.PentahoSystem.getUserDetailsRoleListService()Lorg/pentaho/platform/api/engine/IUserDetailsRoleListService;

    Can You Help me, please?

    If you followed the tutorial for 5.0, why did you install CDC ? That won't run in 5.0. Are you sure you followed the right tutorial ?

    I tried following the these instructions to install via the Marketplace. When I try to install any of the CTools plug-ins, I get an error saying install failed, check log file. In the tomcat log file, I see the following error. It looks like the file it wants is on my Windows CE 5.0 install, but the path it is using is wrong. You will notice is is mixing forward sashes with backslashes.

    2014-02-26 09:54:43,867 ERROR [org.pentaho.di] 2014/02/26 09:54:43 - Download Plugin - ERROR (version 5.0.1-stable.148b6fef6a996547f0a83bc49a869d75ef55b8ca, build 1 from 2013-11-15_14-00-42 by buildguy) : Can not copy file/folder [zip:C:\biserver-ce\pentaho-solutions\system/plugin-cache/downloads/pentaho-cdf-TRUNK-SNAPSHOT_1393437278176.zip] to [C:\biserver-ce\pentaho-solutions\system/plugin-cache/staging]. Exception : [


    Also, I noticed that the zip file C:\biserver-ce\pentaho-solutions\system\plugin-cache\downloads\pentaho-cdf-TRUNK-SNAPSHOT_1393437278176.zip has a size of 0 KB, as do most of the zip files in that directory. Only the file cda-TRUNK-SNAPSHOT_1393398769407.zip has a real size.

    Thanks for any help on fixing this, I'm very eager to use these great tools!

    You're following the instructions for Pentaho 5.0 and applying them to a Pentaho 4.8.

    that won't work.

    For 4.8, either use the marketplace to install the ctools or use ctools-installer.sh
