If you want to install a plugin or skin etc manually & it is in .ipk format then this is for you.

There are three basic methods for installing .ipk files

1. Using DCC
This is the easiest way as shown below:

2. Using Telnet from
Linux, Windows or within DCC

Transfer the .ipk to the STB's /tmp directory. Once transferred use the following command in a telnet session:
Code:
ipkg install /tmp/enigma2-plugin-extensions-nameofplugin.ipk
Some sessions allow copy & paste. DCC does not.
The ipkg command does not work on some images. On those images use opkg instead.
The following example demonstrates the opkg method:

3. Manual installation
Again, transfer the .ipk to the STB's /tmp directory. Once transferred follow the following method:

Thanks go to Tunisiasat for the animated gifs.

You can also install dreamexplorer and then it doesn't matter where you put the ipk as long as it is somewhere accessible to the box.

Open Dreambox Explorer or Filebrower and navigate to the ipk you want to install. Highlight it in the list press OK. Follow the prompts. Restart GUI and job is a goodun.
