On Gwenview 16.04.3, there's a "Plugins" menu, but nothing happens when I click on it. It should have the option to add new plugins, at least show an entry to tell me where or how to get plugins.
Confirm the situation for the Neon developers unstable. The plugins are working well in other distributions (tested in openSUSE Leap 42.1, KaOS, Manjaro, Mageia Cauldron), but are unavailable in all Ubuntu-based distributions including Neon.
This does happens indeed with the latest LinuxMint 18 KDE 'Sarah' too, which is based on 16.04 (Xenial):
~ $ kded5 -v
~ $ plasmashell -v
kipi.library: UI file : "/usr/share/kxmlgui5/kipi/kipiplugin_kxmlhelloworldui.rc"
kipi.library: Loaded plugin "KXMLHelloWorld"
Any workaround, fix, eta?
Well, the following workaround worked for me:
- remove current gwenview version (aka: 4:15.12.3-0ubuntu1)
- install the following:
(with the following dependency: )
Plugins work again. :)

won't work for me, since I'm on Chakra Linux. But I have one question. Does that workaround bring back meta data support to the plugin menu?
Well, you're right - that's a no go, and most under the Images menu, though the rest - Tools/Import/Export looking good.
No go, aka goes in to Segfault:
Application: Gwenview (gwenview), signal: Segmentation fault

Also, found a similar Bug reported here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=344675
Kubuntu LTS 16.x, gwenview shows no kipi plugins. Wonder why it is called LTS? Anyone knows what is going on with gwenview? Why it is not working with kipi plugins in 16.x LTS distro?

If you want to have gwenview and kipi plugins (and digikam5) on ubuntu/kubuntu family use this ppa

I have added this ppa to my System (Mint 18, based on kubuntu16.04 64bit), reinstalled gwenview and kipi-plugis, but now gwenview shows me: No plugins installed.
Well, hard to say, maybe ask package maintainer. On my kubuntu 16.04 they are working although are much less (from my point of view) usable than those from kde4.
