Activate a new plugin

Asked by flrtx

I wrote a plugin based on the google plugin, compiled it into a .pyc-file and copied it to ~/.local/share/kupfer/plugins. It isn't recognized though.

What do I have to do to activate it?

I found it out. Just type 'preferences' in kupfer, select 'Kupfer preferences', then select the plugin tab and check the checkbox.

I'm sorry, this is a major Launchpad WTF for me -- I did not get any notification (E-mail or so) about new Questions about Kupfer at all! Also, the main Q & A page comes up empty for me (you have to search again). So all people asking have been heard by no one, and the first question was in September. I found out about this via Google.
