Newbie: steps to install a plugin

Hi,

I am having trouble to install a plugin…I have used the instruction
from most sites and having problems in installation…

if someone could exaplain this would be very helpfull as there is very
less instructions on this…

So this is the problem I am having…when I do

ruby script/plugin install (plugin name)

it says Plugin not found: (plugin name)

where should be the plugin should be…even it is in the same folder
where I run the script it doesn’t work? I am so confused in getting this
working

Thanks in advance

Which plugin are you trying to install?

If it was the engines plugin, for example, you should be in the root
directory of your application, and the command would be:

ruby script/plugin install engines

http://blog.inquirylabs.com/2006/01/26/bundled-resource-v-09-full-dynarch-calendar-support/

and yes I did run the script in the root directory but where should my
downloades plugin directory should be?

I want the calender to get work in the above mention bundle

Thanks

The plugin should be installed into /vendor/plugins.

the script/plugin command will copy the files automatically from the
internet into a subfolder of that directory, yes. If you are moving
the files manually, or downloading the plugin in a zipped format, you
should place those files in a subdirectory (bundled_resource, in this
case) of vendor/plugins.

James thank you so much for fallowing this…but yeah I did this and its
not working and saying the same that plugin cannot be found while these
files are already in the vendor/plugins.

Could you please check

and check the zip file…I am trying to get the calender to
work…but I can’t get this installation to work…

Thanks so much

Beyond installing the plugin, I don’t have any experience with this
particular plugin, alas.
