I checked the debug messages like you suggested, but there are no relevant entries.
I am not trying to load any plugins that don't come with Geany by default. I see all the plugins that get built when building Geany in the lib/geany directory (for example: filebrowser.la, filebrowser,so, etc). However they aren't loaded when I start Geany.
This DID work on my Mac. The only thing I did differently is that on the Mac, I did "sudo make install". In Ubuntu I did "sudo make install --prefix=~/applications/geany/0.15". I suspect that the Geany plugin manager is looking only in "/usr/local/lib/geany" for plugins. Is there a way to change the location that the plugin manager looks for plugins?
Yes, when setting the prefix correctly. I doubt 'make install --prefix=...' is intended to work and I doubt any application handles this correctly. And checking the manpage of GNU make tells nothing about any '--prefix option'.
Please do it this way: make clean ./configure --prefix=/home/user/applications/geany/0.15 make sudo make install
Then Geany knows about your non-standard prefix and things will work fine (e.g. I'm using /home/enrico/apps/ and it works). And you can't or at least should not use '~' in the prefix path, IIRC the configure script tells you so, too. You should use absolute path names.
