    How can i install Plugins manually on picore lms

    Dear members,
    Unfortunately I updated my Synology to DSM7.
    DSM7 does not run logitech media server anymore, so I installed picore with lms on a raspberry3.
    I love Erlands plug-ins, but you can only install them manually.
    I tried with this command:

    scp -r /Downloads/CustomClockHelper tc@192.168.9.165:/usr/local/slimserver/Plugins/CustomClockHelper

    the plug-ins show up after restarting LMS, but after a reboot of the raspberry they disappear. Can anybody help please?

    Thank you

    I guess this is because piCorePlayer runs in RAM. There's an FAQ at the new pCP documentation site that explains this - https://docs.picoreplayer.org/faq/my...s_disappeared/

    Thank you.
    Unfortunately, there is no /opt/.filetool.lst
    Do i have to create this file manually and then edit it and add /usr/local/slimserver/Plugins to this list?
    I wish there was an easier way, when adding plugins the usual way via the webif of LMS, they stay after a reboot...

    I don't run LMS on pCP but take a look at the LMS Settings > information page. You might find a path for plugins there that won't be deleted/overwritten when you reboot pCP.

    If that doesn't work you could use the same solution that I used for my modified (jivelite) applet:
    create a folder in your home directory where you put your (extracted) plugins.
    Then write a script that's executed on boot (before LMS is started) and that copies your plugin folders to the correct pathso LMS loads them. Maybe you can adapt my solution to your needs.

    Good luck.

    Because the filename has a leading decimal point symbol, it's a hidden file. My pCP devices do have this file.
    If you ssh in to the pi, and change to /opt then type ls -a you will see it.

    Thank you very much, Robert, the -a did the trick for me.
    I edited the file and included /usr/local/slimserver/Plugins in the list.
    Now after reboot i still have the awesome Erland TrackStat and CustomClockHelper plugins installed :-)
