howto Install plugins?

Postby shirish » Mon Jun 11, 2007 11:23 am

Hi all,
The plugins page shows 2-3 plugins which are not included with deluge. I do understand that tarka is trying to make plugins work in a better way viewtopic.php?f=8&t=56 which should be cool. In the same thread he said :-
Currently plugins are implemented as directory which contains a '' file, which is executed when the plugin loads. This registers the plugin class and defines some parameters.

Does this mean a plugin, let's say the categorize plugin, I extract the plugin which produces the categorize directory. I put the categorize directory in .config/deluge or put the files of the categorize directory namely & inside the .config/deluge ? There are no installation instructions given at the wiki hence I'm asking. I know things will be changing fast.
Cheers for all the good work :)

I was wondering how to install the plugins (in this case Scheduler as no instructions came with it), but I found it works by extracting the tar into /usr/share/deluge/plugins with each plugin having its own respective folder. (Having its own folder was the bit that tripped me up as thunar in root mode displays icons and folders in the same way for me :oops: )

You can install plugins into your home folder, under:

and as the other guy pointed out, each plugin resides in it's own directory under that.

But as of version 0.5.2 the plugin architecture has changed slightly, so I believe that the ones in the wiki won't work anymore, at least until they're updated.
