Can't use action plugins on KiCad 5.1.2


I’m trying to install the project archival plugin from, but after pasting its folder in /usr/share/kicad/scripting/plugins, it won’t show up under Tools > External plugins, no matter how many times I refresh or restart the program. Am I missing something?

My PC is running on Linux Mint 19.1, and the KiCad version is the one included in Mint’s repository (5.1.2).

Thanks in advance.

Try putting it in $HOME/.kicad/scripting/plugins instead.

Put a link in ~/.kicad_plugins which fixed it for me.

Better still, keep those plugins that can’t be found (yet) automatically in ~/.kicad_plugins
