bowtie2 indexes & errors

Nikolaos Tur

I observe next error:

[2017-03-21 10:30:56] Beginning TopHat run (v2.1.0)
[2017-03-21 10:30:56] Checking for Bowtie
                 Bowtie version:
[2017-03-21 10:30:56] Checking for Bowtie index files (genome)..
Error: Could not find Bowtie 2 index files (/home/galaxy/tool-data/GRCm38_84/bowtie2_index/GRCm38_84/GRCm38_84.*.bt2)

And this error is clear: no index files with *.bt2. But we have for GRCm38_84:

as I understand from the manual for bowtie2 "l" at the end of files means that indexes were created for large file. If it is correct way then why Galaxy tools do not understand this extension and how it should be solve?

Okay I have simply created symbolic links to them with *.bt2 extensions (I don't know if *.tb2 and *.tb2l have the same format) and run job again:

If this is not an extension problem then what is an origin of this error and how to solve it?
