Usage: -o path Write the imported attributes to a file, instead of sending them to the server.
[OPTION] path
-d debugLevel Integer between 1-4
-g plugin Import files using the listed plugin, rather than the system installed plugins.
-p Print out performance information gathered during the run
-A Print out the list of all of the attributes and exit
-X Print out the schema file and exit
-L Print out the List of plugins that we are going to use and exit
-r Ask the server to reimport files for UTIs claimed by the listed plugin.
-n Don't send the imported attributes to the data store.

It sounds like you installed it in /Library/Spotlight instead (the DMG has a link to that folder) so you should run this command instead:

mdimport -r /Library/Spotlight/epub.mdimporter

Assuming that doesn't immediately give you an error, your Mac will start indexing files in the background. If you run Activity Monitor you should see "mds" and perhaps "mdworker" working hard.

That did the job. That command did not produce any feedback in Terminal, but a few hours later I tested, and it worked. Thanks.

I haven't checked your documentation to see if this command is there. This will be very useful to me. I'll want to create an epub version of any book I have - and bookmark your sites in case I ever upgrade my computer.

Thanks again.

Great to hear!

Another feature of the spotlight plugin is that if you do a "Get Info" on an epub file in the Finder, the "More Info" section shows a couple of fields like the author and publisher.
