Ubuntu: desktop 17.04
Entangle version: v0.7.1
libgphoto2 version: v2.5.12
Camera model: Canon EOS SL1 FW v101
Description of problem:
I am having trouble loading plugin's. On a fresh install I can not see plugin's in the preferences menu. I can see that they are located in '/usr/share/entangle/plugins/'. If i copy the plugin's to '/home/daniel/.config/entangle/plugins/' I can see them in the preferences menu. But checking the box dose not allow there use.

Install method is 'sudo apt-get install entangle'

Looking at the file list for the entangle package:

We can see that the plugin code simply isn't included at all.

Only the gschema files in /usr/share have been installed

The code and registration metadata from /usr/lib(64) are missing.

A proper install for a plugin install would have 4 files:


NB, /usr/lib64 might be elsewhere on Ubuntu
