Installing plugin in linux?

Post by Androiders » Mon Nov 25, 2019 11:37 am

I built a plugin for codelite that i want to use but where and how do i install it?
CodeLite is installed using an official release from PPA and is version 13.0

I tried to put the splugins .so file in /usr/lib/codelite since it seemed that was the location of the other plugins.
However, CodeLite did not load my plugin. Do i need to do something else?

Check the log file under ~/.codelite/codelite.log

It will say it wasn't loaded. Usually, a version mismatch (i.e. your CodeLite is built with a specific plugin API version while you built your plugin with a different version)
Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread
