Installation of packed Winston

Hi
As a newbe to Julia I have problem with adding packed e.g. Winston for plot to my PC.
i get several errors like:

julia> Pkg.add(“Winston”)
Cloning default registries into C:\Users\CSJN\.julia
Cloning registry from “https://github.com/JuliaRegistries/General.git
ERROR: failed to clone from https://github.com/JuliaRegistries/General.git, error: GitError(Code:ERROR, Class:OS, failed to send request: The operation timed out
)

Any hints ?

Maybe try poking github from the command line. ssh and such… Looks like access protocols are not working (firewall perhaps?).

Hi both
Thnks a lot for the hint.
Yes I can connect to Github in a browser and it also seems to go a bit futher if i pass the firewall, but still the result is several errors:

julia> Pkg.add(“winston”)
Cloning default registries into C:\Users\CSJN\.julia
Cloning registry from “https://github.com/JuliaRegistries/General.git
Added registry General to C:\Users\CSJN\.julia\registries\General
ERROR: The following package names could not be resolved:

  • winston (not found in project, manifest or registry)
    Please specify by known name=uuid.

Are I’m going to be “Sign in” to Github during the installation or can I download the packed (where to ?) or

Now the only problems seems to be that you spelled Winston with a lowercase w. Try Pkg.add("Winston").
