Manually installing addons running linux

Hey everyone, so instead of taking anymore time tinkering trying to get Minion to run. I'm going to just try and install them manually, my question is where should I make the addons folder? Currently I have it in the Documents folder, but the addons aren't showing up in-game.

You have to put the file in the same user than eso when you run it with administrator right.

Right, I just can't seem to find the correct path since installing Linux.

Hey, I'm not an expert, but you could search your hard disk for a file named 'UserSettings.txt' after starting, login and closing ESO? The folder in which this file exists, is the ESO directory where you can create a new folder named 'AddOns'. In this folder each addon will exist in a subdirectory.

Usually it's "$HOME/Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns",
but that's assuming Wine links the Windows' "My Documents" folder to "$HOME/Documents".

I remember some older Wine versions pointed "My Documents" to "$HOME" instead, which was quite surprising and inconvenient (then ESO put it's stuff directly in "$HOME/Elder Scrolls Online").
You can check and possibly fix where "My Documents" point to in winecfg (tab Desktop Integration), or manually check the symlink in "$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/users/$USER/"

Just in case someone gets hit by another still unfixed eso client quirk I've just encountered.

Upon startup, the client wants to decide whether it's "live" or "pts" (i.e. the name of the settings directory). Problem is this guess fails if the current working directory is not .../game/client/ (where eso64.exe lies). It's probably looking for some .version file via relative path, which obviously fails if you run eso from any other directory using command like `WINEPREFIX="$HOME/games/ESO" wine "c:/ZOS/ESO/game/client/eso64.exe"`. The client then falls back to using "ESO_BUILD_BRANCH" as the name of the settings directory.

Here's a command I used to find out where the heck is ESO looking for settings (type in terminal while ESO client is running):
bash Code:
  1. lsof -c eso64.exe | grep -i logs
It should show path to .../Logs/interface.log
directories AddOns and SavedVariables should then be next to Logs

During the beta I was working on an ESO manager tool (which I have stopped pretty fast). I remember the client changing and reading some data from the following files. Maybe thery are still the "version" files:


/Path to ESO game files/The Elder Scrolls Online/depot/_databuild/databuild.stamp
or for PTS
/Path to ESO game files/The Elder Scrolls Online PTS/depot/_databuild/databuild.stamp


Example content for live:
Code:
4000.win.1707942.live.1707887
2018/12/07:22:50:05
4.2.11

Example content for PTS:
Code:
2100.win.1674714.rc.1674693
2018/10/12:03:14:29
4.2.4
