hi there,

to successfully index word files you will also need the actual antiword
executable placed in the path indicated above (/usr/bin/). You may
install it anywhere else you like but then you will have to update the

it is also possible to use another word-to-text conversion program in
which case you would have to change the path and the executable name in
the above extract of the configuration file.

best regards,
