      Description

      When I enter the equation editor in Moodle 2.1.1, my error log immediately produces these errors:

      [Thu Aug 11 10:40:59 2011] [error] [client x.x.x.x] File does not exist: C:/Apache2/htdocs/moodle/lib/dragmath/applet/META-INF

          Why issue project is "Non-core contributed modules"?
          Moodle 2.1 repository contain dragmath sources (https://github.com/moodle/moodle/tree/MOODLE_21_STABLE/lib/dragmath). TinyMCE from Moodle 2.1 standard install contain button 'Insert equation' and I receive same errors while try using it.

          Artem,

          Thanks for the comment. I noticed this too. I don't know if anybody is even watching this bug since it is assigned to "moodle.com" and not a Moodle developer.

          I've added to watching list Michael de Raadt. He has moved this issue to 'Non-core contributed modules'.

          Bottom line is that this bug should be closed because it is identical to MDL-19656. Dragmath 0.7.8.2 was added to Moodle. Though Dragmath is now at 0.7.9 (as of March) it does not look like this issue was ever noted in the dragmath version doc or in the dragmath tracker (for 0.7.8.2 or 0.7.9).

          I have added it to the dragmath tracker.
          http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3396952&group_id=201862&atid=979256

          Two things to note here: There will be issues with syncing versions and core devs are now responsible for this.
          Oh, and as these error messages are harmless, it is possible that the DragMath devs just had other things to do....

          Note that this also affects the Moodle 2.2 branch.

          Any update on this?

          Ryan,
          As you can see (http://www.dragmath.bham.ac.uk/versionHistory.html) there has been no fixes in the DragMath code for this issue listed since the bug was posted, but based upon the manner in which Moodle has incorporated DragMath, any changes in DragMath code would have to be manual addressed in the Moodle version by a Moodle core dev. In the meantime, I would not worry about the error messages; install Mauno's math plugin package once he upgrades (I don't think MathJax's incorporation of AsciiMathML includes ASCIIMathSVG and for legacy users that may be an issue - perhaps someone will produce a js translator for ASCIIMathSVG2jsxgraph, lol) and have some fun.....
