ah sorry. I meant the config file you are passing to swish-e at runtime.

if you aren't passing one, then your problem is that swish-e doesn't know on its 
own how to parse PDF files. PDFs (.doc .xls etc) need to be converted to text 
(html, xml or plain untagged) in order to be indexed.

See SWISH::Filter perl module, the script, and the docs about 
converting PDFs. I use pdftotext, as do many.
