If I click on Problem Library, I got : "This library has not been installed". Is it normal or not? I have libraries from Rochester, Union... installed.
The Problem library button is for a collection of problems indexed in a mysql database. If you haven't installed that collection, then the response is normal.
There are several steps to installing the problem library. From Rochester's cvs you should go to the Arizona State University problems, and there is a directory of problems called database_problems. It contains the problems and installation instructions.
There is a separate process for libraries from Rochester, Union, etc. You can just have them appear under Local Problems by linking to their directories in a course's templates directory, or you can have extra buttons appear for them by configuring it in global.conf.
I created some problems and I would like to have them added in the Local Library. How can I do that?
Put them in the templates directory, or a subdirectory of that, or in another directory and make a symbolic link to it from inside the course templates directory.
