How to install downloaded zip/tar.gz plugin?

Hello !

Some time ago , I asked how to make
pagination(http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/185831#new), i have
downloaded this plugin, and I do not want to download this plugin every
time when I want to create new nooby test project.

My question is just - how to install plugin from tarball ?

Thanks.

99% of the time you just need to untar it into vendor/plugins. Some
plugins have an install.rb that you should run.

What platform? Use gunzip.

Thanks guys for your replies.

You are right, restful_authentication plugin I have installed just
copying to vendor/plugin. I know about activescaffold plugin, it is must
be installed with his css, js and other things, and installing this
plugin can’t be simple, maybe need run install.rb, but I don’t know from
where need run it. Can you give me example ? And maybe how to emulate
git for this ?

system linux.

Copy the plugin to vendor/plugins, then switch to the plugin’s directory
and run install.rb .

You don’t need to emulate git.
