To detect if the paintop is loadingm it is enough to put a line
containing something like
qDebug() << "test" ;
Inside the constructor.

Try with the unmodified Minimal Paintop Plugin, it should work out of
the box, except that you must add it to the upper directory's
CMakeLists.txt. In
You must add a line containing the name of the folder in which you
have the paintop. If the folder is called "minmalop", then you must
add this line:
add_subdirectory( minimalop )

Make sure when you add that line that the name you put in
add_subdirectory( XXXXXXXX ) matches the name of the subfolder
containing your paintop.

I suspect that part is failing because our README instructions were
completely clear.

Tell us how it goes.
