About

LOTRO Plugin Compendium (LPC) is a utility application to assist in installing and updating lotro LUA plugins. It attempts to take some of the leg work away from user having to manually download, create folders, and unzip download.

This is a platform independent version made available by request of the Mac and Linux crowd. Currently it has no installer, so while you could use it for windows, I would recommend you use the windows specific version http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info663-LOTROPluginCompendium.html

Disclaimer
This application is an attempt to automate a manual process and help make things easier for LOTRO users. That said, if it does not work right, please report it below. I take no responsibility of it does not work on your PC or messes things up. I would, however, like to know about any problems you encounter so future versions can be fixed.

Known Issues
  • Please configure the Download Path on configuration panel for mac. It looks like mac might change the temp folder location. Since your settings are persisted and reloaded on startup, this is a bad thing if it goes away. I'd recommend setting to /tmp
  • Lack of Installer
  • in plugin description xml feed shows escaped characters.
  • Turbine Lotro Client seems to change the install location for Plugins. This can be configured by pointing the Install Path setting (on Configuration Tab) to something like
    ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/Plugins

Requirements
Java JRE/JDK 6+

Mac does not come with java by default. Please download http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...s-2133155.html

Re: Where do I install the plugins?

Hey there, if you need to find the folder on linux, where your plugins and such need to be placed, try this following command:

find $HOME -name lotro.keymap


Because the lotro.keymap file only exists once and is always in the correct folder.
This will likely give yourself a result like mine (if using steam/proton but should also work for a wine install) which looks like this:

/home/mias/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/212500/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/lotro.keymap

In here create a "Plugins" folder, and that is the folder you need to specify with the above path in the compedium configuration option "Plugin Install Path".

If there is need for a full Linux guide, let me know and I can supply you in a different thread / as an installation guide in this threads FAQ.

Open the game launcher - don't log in, in the top right corner, there is a button with a downward pointing arrow (third from right). Click it to drop down the options menu and click "Explore Screenshots Folder". This will open a folder explorer window in the folder where your Lord of the Rings Online client looks for documents. There should be a "Plugins" folder under that folder which is where plugins get unzipped. Do not confuse this with the "PluginData" folder which may also exist but is where plugins store their settings and data (if this folder does not already exist, that's ok, as soon as you load your first plugin, the data folder will get created by the client if needed).

Java Error Launching Linux Version

Just to help others, I got the following error:
Quote:
implementation of jaxb-api has not been found
This was because it's not clear from the write-up where the Java 11 version link is...except it's the big, obvious download button that I missed!

There are two filenames you can get
Quote:
plugincompendium-1.4-java11.zip
and
Quote:
plugincompendium-1.4.zip
(Java 6+ I think)

on the plugincompendium-1.4-java11 version. Under the linux folder, plugincompendium.sh has:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

java -jar plugincompendium-1.1-full.jar
The 1.1 should be 1.4

Once this is done it works as expected.

Re: TitanBar won't Install

HTML Code:
Hey there. I've managed to get a number of plugins installed, however TitanBar which works fine on my Windows partition, won't install on the Linux one. something about "unexpected element (uri:'', local: "Plugin") then lists the "expected elements".

Is this a LOTROinterface issue or a TitanBar one, do you know? Thanks.
Sounds like perhaps the plugin or plugincompendium file might have something in it that it does not like.

This problem was not happening for me. Does the configuration tab look alright? Is the URL set to http://api.lotrointerface.com/fav/plugincompendium.xml

can you reach that url in a browser?

New version works perfectly on Linux Mint 19.3 - Thank you so much for all your hard work!!


I uploaded a new version for Java 11. I cannot test this on Mac, so if someone would be so kind as to do so.

If you are using Java 8, just download the older 1.4 version of the client.

(edit: looks like its awaiting approval. if it doesn't have java11 in the filename, it hasn't been approved yet)
