Install Gallery2

One of the options for working with images in Drupal involves using the Gallery module which acts as a bridge to the Gallery2 opensource software package. Because the LTER content types used Gallery2, I'm installing it to evaluate whether or not to keep it in. Here's what I've done:

- Installed the Gallery module from Drupal
- Installed Gallery2 following this website.

$ sudo apt-get install gallery2
$ whereis gallery2
$ cd /var/drupal/
$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/gallery2/
$ dpkg -L gallery2


- Navigated to http://localhost/drupal/gallery2/install
- Following install wizard
- create login.txt and place in /usr/share/gallery2
- Standard installation...
- storage directory: /var/lib/gallery2/g2data
- set up a DB user through phpMyAdmin
- Set admin id
- installed all modules
- Errors:
* The ImageMagick module was installed, but needs configuration to be activated
* The Multiroot module was installed, but needs configuration to be activated
* The Nokia Image Upload module was installed, but needs configuration to be activated
* The URL Rewrite module was installed, but needs configuration to be activated

- Go to http://localhost/drupal/admin/settings/gallery and specify the URL as http://localhost/drupal/gallery2

- Skipped clean URLs of this step
- Did user synchronization

That's it for now. Merry Christmas.
