Where do plugins go on Linux?

Where do plugins go on Linux?

Seems like it should be common knowledge enough given that there are zero instructions anywhere, but it isn't in the "~/home/.config/audacious" directory and it's absolutely nowhere to be found in the "/usr/share/audacious/" directory.

They are stored below $(LIBDIR)/audacious/ where $LIBDIR depends on architecture and install-time choices. Typically, it is /usr/lib64/audacious/ for 64-bit archs.

Below /usr/share would be incorrect, because it is for architecture-independent data, and compiled plugins are arch-specific. Similarly for $HOME/.config which is for per-user configuration files, and storing plugins there would be a wrong choice.

Where do plugins go on Linux Mint?

I'm on Linux Mint. I still can't find it. I've gone to those places and there is no plugins directory.

Did you install Audacious via prebuilt packages for Linux Mint? If so, examine the "audacious" and "audacious-plugins" package contents with your favorite package manager.

Or did you compile Audacious yourself?

If Audacious is installed already, you can also start it from a terminal window as "audacious --verbose" or "audacious -V", and it will print lots of stuff about plugin loading.
