Hi again Toni
You didn't said much about your plugins... I'm kinda interested what 
kind of plugins you wanna work with. Anyway, The way you talked about in 
you email works right but I liked another way kinda better:
1. Opening //usr/bin/azureus/ with root privileges.
2. Adding /cd ~/.azureus/plugins/ right before the run line.
Now I don't know that this link in /usr/bin/ is done by azureus team 
themselves or it's part of the packaging. Just in case it's part of the 
packaging. plzzzzz... pretty plzzzzz... do this change, It seems to work 
fine (unless it makes another problems which I can't understand _which 
is possible considering I'm kinda a noob in these kind of stuff_).
By the way if you are thinking these are the shared plugins and should 
be somewhere where every user can reach, well... let's just say Azureus 
is putting it in /home/*name*/plugins which is just the same.

Thank you
