loading plugins with CC 2.9 beta on ubuntu

Postby sguinard » Mon Jul 17, 2017 1:54 pm

Hi,

I just downloaded the latest beta version (2.9) and compiled it on Ubuntu from the sources,
But when launching CC, it appears that the plugins were not found
A little workaround just proved that the path CC used to find plugins was wrong:
/usr/lib/cloudcompare/plugins instead of /usr/local/lib/cloudcompare/plugins

I don't know if I'm the only one facing this,
But it seems a bit weird as it worked without problem for me on 2.6.1 version

Also keep up the good work on CC :)
Stephane

Can you provide us with your CMake configuration? (one or several screenshots would be good)

Thanks
Daniel, CloudCompare admin

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the quick answer

The options are in the cmake-1 & cmake-2 images and the configuration is in cmake-3

I'm afraid to not understand the issue here.
the runtime path point to '/usr/local/lib/cloudcompare/plugins' as proved by your last printscreen

yes, but CC was searching for the plugins in /usr/lib/cloudcompare/plugins , which is not the place they have been installed,
that's what i wanted to say at first

We just check with Daniel, it should work fine as is.

have you another version of CC installed on this computer?
else I must admit that I'm clueless here,
It should just work fine, you are the first to encounter the issue since we changed the whole path system
