Well, maybe not offer a list of available plugins but at least give a way to show that a particular plugin has actually err, plugged in when a neophyte user has installed it. My original was perhaps a little obscure in that the plugin was already installed and it told me that I needed to install another module before it would work. I installed the module (I think). The OSPi software gave me no indication as to whether:
– the needed module had already been installed before I started. This would have been sensible since the plugin needs the module to work.
– it was working (or not) when I installed it according to the published Linux instructions in the linked Wiki.
– I broke something by installing a later version of the module that the plugin could not use.
You get my point?
