Well, seems like you are setting it up correctly.
Let me try:
$ cat c
FileFilter .pdf ./_pdf2html.pl
$ ../src/swish-e -c c -i /usr/share/cups/doc-root/translation.pdf
Indexing Data Source: "File-System"

$ ../src/swish-e -w cups

$ ../src/swish-e -T index_words_only | wc -l
$ ../src/swish-e -T index_words_only | tail
Can you repeat that with your pdf file?
