Location to install plugins in Mac OSX for Idea 6.0.5


I want to install the ruby plugin for Idea 6.0.5 on Mac OSX.

I created a folder called IntelliJIDEA60 under ~/Library/Application Support and dropped in the jar file there.

IDEA does not see that plugin.

Where should you copy over the plugin jar file in Mac OSX for Idea 6.0.5?

Yes that location should work but you can confirm where each version of IDEA expects to find plugins, caches and preferences by looking in the /Applications/IntelliJ\ IDEA\ ]]>.app/Contents/Info.plist file.

It lists keys for idea.config.path, idea.system.path, and idea.plugins.path. I'm using 7.0 Milestone 2 but I don't think those have changed since 6.0.5.

One other thing, you may want to confirm the Ruby Plugin you downloaded works with your 6.0.5 build number (6180).

The second link shows the 6.0 versions require at least build #7051.
