I had a similar problem in gutsy and I think it's because the
interface for the configurations in strigi is broken. My solution was
to stop strigi, edit the config file by hand and then restart it.
Anyway, you will have to use paths not url's.


PS.: By the way, does anyone know the complete syntax for the config file??
