Post Cannot unpack the repository
on: December 3, 2015, 11:49


Today I downloaded the latest version of Docear:

When trying to unpack the tar.gz on my pc, it results in the following error:

tar: Skipping to next header

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I'm using ubuntu gnome 14.04 with tar (GNU tar) 1.27.1.
I haven't experienced this problem before when installing Docear. Has the package been updated recently?


Thank you for your feedback. Please note that we - the Docear team - currently do not have the time to answer support questions. However, we encourage all Docear users to help each other.
