Trouble installing plugins..

I'm running on Ubuntu, every time I try to install a plugin I get the following error pop-up from sh3d.

Running command: /usr/bin/sweethome3d ExportToHTML5-1.1.sh3p

Getting "Can't import plug-in"
pop up in dialogue box.

I've also tried manually moving the extract into ~/.eteks/sweethome3d/plugins but it doesn't seem to recognise it.

Thanks.

Re: Trouble installing plugins..

DO this
- CTRL H (this shows hidden directories)
- go to /.eteks/SweetHome/plugins (or something similar)
- if "plugins" doesn't exist, create it
- copy the plugin(s) to that directory
- (re)start SH3D

Re: Trouble installing plugins..

Thanks hansmex.. I'd tried all that stuff already and copying into a new directory.
In the end it was something really silly.
Even though I was in the directory holding the sh3p file, I needed to specify explicitly the directory, not just relative.
ie.
/usr/bin/sweethome3d /home/joebloggs/downloads/plugin.sh3d

It must be something in the script that uses it for install.

Re: Trouble installing plugins..

Maybe the program doesn't have the rights to copy in the target directory. To be sure where this folder is, import a furniture library and if it works, search on your disk the furniture folder where it was copied. The plugins folder should be a sibling folder of that furniture folder.
