I want to load the GeoTrace plugin into QGIS. I have donwloaded the ZIP file, unzippped it and created a folder C:\Users\UserName\.qgis2\python\plugins\GeoTace and copied the files in there. I still can't see the plugin if I click on plugins in the GUI. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong?


Which version of qgis are you using? If you are using QGIS 3 you need to change the location of the plugins folder see QGIS 3 Plugin folder location

You should be able to install geotrace using the qgis plugin repository.


GeoTrace plugin doesn't work in QGIS 2.x. C:\Users\UserName\.qgis2 folder contains files/folders related to QGIS 2.x. You should visit the link @Lachlan specified in his/her answer.
