Load custom plugins

It doesn't work.

I have this layout:

~/KDE/install where I set the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to. I run: `$ rm -rf *
&& cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/KDE/install ../../source/kdev-embedded &&
make && make install`

after that I set the environment and execute:

export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=$QT_PLUGIN_PATH:$HOME/KDE/install/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins
export XDG_DATA_DIRS=$XDG_DATA_DIRS:$HOME/KDE/install/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins


I don't think this is complete because:

   - KDevelop does not load the plugin nor throw an error about it
   - There is also a ~/KDE/install/share dir that contains plugin related
   files. Directory to which I didn't point to from anywhere.

What should I do?
