Hi José! Thanks for trying my package.

That first problem about mkoctfile, I have no idea what's going on.
Maybe your Octave installation actually is broken? Maybe something needs
to be added to your $PATH (the regular PATH environment variable, not
the Octave path)?

That second problem about __octave_link_register_doc__: That's already
fixed in the new 0.3.4 release of Tablicious
(https://github.com/apjanke/octave-tablicious/issues/67); I just forgot
to update the README to point the download link at the new package.
Please try installing 0.3.4; it should work under both Octave 5 and 6:

pkg install
