Hi! I’m working on OJS 3.1.2 and I can’t install the QuickSubmit plugin. This plugin appears in my gallery, but I click OK for installing and a few minutes later a notification pops up: it says that “tar command” is not available and I have to configure it in my “config.inc.php”. What can I do?
Most probably you are on Windows, where usually tar not available.
What you can do is to manually copy the plugin form the github to the plugins/general directory and should work.
If you’re on Windows, you can get the
tar utility from e.g. http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/gtar.htm. Be careful if you do install the plugin manually – make sure you get the right version of the plugin for your version of OJS, and that you’re downloading the released version, not just the latest source code. You can find releases in the “Releases” area.
