Depending on the plugin, it either goes into /tmp (or var/tmp) and install it from the blue button, or var/tuxbox/plugins

Cheers for the reply.....Var is only 73% full...
I have even tried transferring a text file but it still fails...
It seems that folder lib/tuxbox/plugins is somehow locked....
I have also tried putting the winrar file in temp and installing it manually which according to the dreambox it does successfully..
But when i go to plug ins....Its not there...

BTW image is gemini 2.7

Ps tried differnt ftp progs...Core ftp DCC??????

It needs to be a tar file to go in tmp

If you look carefully I didn't say LIB, but VAR/tuxbox

Which plugin are you having problems with?

Thanx again mate...

Reason i was trying to put it in Lib was....That was the path in the winrar file....
