Hi Hans,

Thank you for your answer. I will try to be more specific.
I am running Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise). I already install and using Dia.
I need to use downloaded from
Probably which also has Installation/Usage instructions.

I try to put to ~/.dia/python/ but seems I don't have such directory
I have ~/.dia/ directory but there's no python directory inside.
Are you asking how a directory is created? Would you have followed the instructions if it would have told you to create that subdirectory if it does not exist?

I also try to put it on /usr/share/dia/python but I don't know how to load the plugin inside of the application.
Again, please follow the instruction.
How should I do that ?
The plug-in is loaded automatically if put into the right directory.

Thank You
