No plugins directory in ~/.purple
I successfully completed installing pidgin (Home | Pidgin) from its source code. Now, I wish to enable a particular Transliteration plugin. I downloaded that plugin and successfully ran the make command for the same. The last step in the Readme of that plugin asks to copy a particular .so file to ~/.purple/plugins . This is where I get stuck.
Because there is no such directory by the name "plugins" under ~/.purple. There is a file by the name plugins though.
Now my requirement is to install this plugin in the directory it specifies and then enable the plugin from pidgin in Tools -> Pugins.
Request to help me.
