I’ve been using Gnome-Do for a little bit (it’s a Quicksilver workarlike – like Launchy, which I had a brief love affair with before I gave up Windows), and love the fact that I can rapidly launch stuff that I don’t necessarily remember the capitalization of without having to resort to my mouse or move from home-row. So naturally I was thrilled when I found out it was extensible with plugins! Of course, I followed the instructions on the site (copy the plugin.dll file to /home/user/.local/share/gnome-do/plugins/) and restarted Gnome, and… nothing. No new functionality. So I kind of meandered around and found another suggestion on the Ubuntu wiki, to copy to your /home/user/.do/addins directory. WRONG AGAIN. So I decided to do a little mental leap and created a /home/user/.do/plugins directory, and lo there was Connect with SSH and Tweet. Hooray.
Hot tip to all you plugin folks out there, you could include instructions on how to install your plugins in the readme! It’d be like… 1996 and shit, with annotated instructions.
