Just installed Debian and Octave.
Now want to install the package ‘comminications-1.0.4.tar.gz’
At the octave:1> prompt I gave the command ‘pkg install home/Downloads/communications-1.0.4.tar.gz’
(as the file ‘communications-1.0.4.tar.gz’ is in the folder called ‘Downloads’ on my desktop)
Now I get the message:
tar: option requires an argument – f
try ‘tar –help’ or ‘tar –usage’ for more information.
Warning: implicit conversion from scalar to string
Error: tar: tar exited with status = @
However when I try ‘tar –help’ or ‘tar –usage’ or try ‘tar help’ or ‘tar usage’ I get ‘syntax error’.
Please Help. Many Thanks.
