I recently installed plone 4.2 on an up to date, virtualbox ubuntu 12.04
server running on my mac laptop.  Before adding add-ons to buildout I went
to site setup to configure the settings (except mail).  Upon selecting:
"image handling" I got the following error message (
http://pastebin.com/JL9M28yD full exception details here ):

Traceback (innermost last):
  Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 126, in publish
  Module ZPublisher.mapply, line 77, in mapply
  Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 46, in call_object
  Module zope.formlib.form, line 795, in __call__
  Module five.formlib.formbase, line 50, in update
  Module zope.formlib.form, line 758, in update
  Module plone.fieldsets.form, line 30, in setUpWidgets
  Module zope.formlib.form, line 383, in setUpEditWidgets
  Module zope.component.hooks, line 104, in adapter_hook
  Module plone.app.imaging.configlet, line 18, in __init__
AttributeError: imaging_properties

Since this time I've added add-on products via buildout and some content. 
This issue shows itself, I believe, when I try to set a folder containing
images to display as thumbnails--it just shows a box containing the name of
the image.  Also, if I click on a link to an image it isn't displayed.  When
I check error messages I get  http://pastebin.com/Ms4JDvkL these exception

However, when I click on the, "click to view full sized image..." link, the
image displays properly.

I wonder if I'm missing a library of some sort?  I did: sudo apt-get install
build-essential python2.7-dev before installing plone and that seemed to get
me the resources listed on the plone install page.

Thanks for considering,
David G
