This is an odd issue that I cant figure out:
I wrote a few simple jython scripts added them to a folder, and dragged that folder to my Fiji.app/plugins directory. I could then see and run the scripts from my Plugins menu. I made an update site and added these scripts to it for easy distribution to my lab (called Lab-utility-plugins http://imagej.net/List_of_update_sites , source: https://github.com/Macklin-Lab/imagej-microscopy-scripts/tree/master/Lab-utility-plugins – you can see the names are formatted properly with
.py). This was all fine, but I recently updated Fiji, and the scripts all disappeared from my machine. I removed and added the update site, uninstalled and re-installed Fiji, still no luck.
I tried adding other dummy files to my plugins folder, things like
test_macro.ijm test_ja.jar` and still nothing shows up.
Oddly, everyone in my lab and friends are able to install and use the plugins from the update site still. I tried a fresh install on a Windows machine I have access to and again it worked without a problem. I am stuck-- it seems like my plugins folder is no longer checking for updates.
any help would be appreciated.
