This question already has an answer here:

I'm running QGIS Las Palmas on Mac OS Mavericks but after enabling all features in the Manage Plugins menu, I can't find the plugin I want.
I downloaded it from the internet and wish to install it manually. From what I understood I should be able to reach the plugins folder in qgis/contents/python/plugins but i don't have a python folder when I open 'contents'.
All I have is qgis/contents/plugins and then a bunch of other folders, but no python.

Can anyone guide me through manually installing the plugin on the correct folder, please?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Have you tried creating a new "python" folder inside "contents"? From some of the posts I read, you might need Contents/Resources/python/plugins but can't confirm this :) – Joseph Jun 22 '17 at 11:08
  • Does this help: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/227057/… (the implication is that the folder is a hidden one which is why you can't see it). – Rostranimin Jun 22 '17 at 21:42
