I found I missed two things before:

There is a OMEMO plugin and I can activate.

Messages send are still not encrypted as I can see in dino.im

There is supposed to be a OMEMO plugin symbol in toolbar in chat window 
but there is not, even tough it is supposed to be there according to 
settings window.

I leave it at that for today.

dino.im works out of the box.

If someone has it working in psi or psi+ please let me know how you did
