Kicad 6.0RC plugins issue

Hi, recently I ported some of my plugins to v5.99 and then adapted to v6.0RC…
I also started to learn how to package them to be included in the PCM…
Everything went fine till Kicad version:

but something went wrong with the recent version:

Application: KiCad PCB Editor (64-bit)

Version: (6.0.0-rc1-207-gd7f5917fb0), release build

Libraries:
	wxWidgets 3.1.5
	libcurl/7.78.0-DEV Schannel zlib/1.2.11

	wxWidgets: 3.1.5 (wchar_t,wx containers)
	Boost: 1.76.0
	OCC: 7.5.0
	Curl: 7.78.0-DEV

They just disappear from the Action tool bar and preferences … is there a way to get the errors triggered by the plugin if it doesn’t appear to the toolbar?

In preferences-> action plugins is there a button with warning sign icon? If so clicking it will reveal plugin init errors.

@qu1ck unfortunately the button doesn’t appear …
thanks for the suggestion

Then please provide some more info.
Does any plugin work? Does manual installation of your plugin work (not from pcm)? Does my plugin from pcm work?
If you print pcbnew.PLUGIN_DIRECTORIES_SEARCH in scripting console does it include the …\3rdparty\plugins directory?

Probably the same as https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/issues/9798

The fix to get plugins to show up without restart only works on Linux, and seems to not be possible on Windows. So we’ll have to roll that back for now.

on win your plugin works, on Linux not
my plugins, both installed from github or with pcm, worked with the Nov 25th release, and not with the today release even on win

I will wait for the next release… thanks for the checking
