Hello, please forgive this post if it has been answered but I have spent 3 days looking for an answer and have found nothing that has worked. I have installed wysiwyg in drupal 7 in the stes module folders and I have also installed tinymce and ckeditor in the libraries folder. However I can't get the buttons to appear on the create content "article page". All my folders are owned and have the group of www-data with access under the "other" permissions area. I am tearing out my hair!!! (if I had some). The wysiwyg module is enabled and configured, I can configure the content types although only tinymce appears, not ckeditor. I can connect through to the ckeditor samples page though. I've shut down and restarted, re-installed etc.
Does anyone have a step by step diagnostic for solving this issue? Drupal 7 is installed on Linux 12.04 on LAMP stack using local host. I think it may be a file permission problem but I've tried changing file ownership and permissions to my Ubuntu user name but no luck there either. I admit I'm a Linux newbie as well. Thank you in advance for any help. If there is no solution does anyone have a recommendation for a wysiwyg editor that does work? BTW I've used the vry lates version of Tinymce and CKeditor as the download lin in the configure page wouldn't connect, so I went straight to their websites.
