Cant load plugins

I did a Fiduswriter install using pip under Python Venv,
under ve activated
I did: pip3 install fiduswiter[books]

pip freeze, show “fiduswriter-books…” there.
The install seams ok. But, after add books to APPS in,
Doing a fiduswriter setup return the following error.
Did I miss something?

(ve) fiduswriter@666a80f710d8:~$ fiduswriter setup

Hey @jobdiogenes,
yes that is slightly confusing. The module to add is “book” (singular) while the plugin is called “fiduswriter-books” (plural).

In general, the easiest under most circumstances will be to just run the Snap-based installation, which includes all the plugins and where this sort of thing cannot happen.

Hi @johanneswilm,
Thanks very much.
Now its working.
