Never use anything under /usr/ for your own data or files. Kicad should find plugins under your home directory in:

  • .kicad_plugins/
  • .kicad/scripting/
  • .kicad/scripting/plugins/

(on Linux).

I followed these steps also @eelik eventhough its not showing any external plugins after refreshing

I’m on Debian. A search shows POP is an Ubuntu variant so it should be similar to this.
