After placing the module in addons folder restart the server and update the module list Settings -> Modules -> Update Module List . Then click on Installed Modules (Settings -> Modules -> Installed Modules) and uncheck the Installed filter. Then you can see the list of modules in your system and also you can search your module by typing its name in the searchbox after unchecking the Installed filter.

Hello. Evon

Any thing seems to be order.

Please add this module in the addons folder in "opt/openerp/server/openerp/addons " in ubuntu ..

Then Settings->modules-> installed module -> "click on update module'" to update

After doing that u can see your module in it.

You have to put your module into the addons directory. It will be default : /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons. Or if your path is different then you required to add that module into 7.0/addons directory where it is located.

Now you have to restart the server and and update modules list : (Note : That menu will only appear if user is having "Technical Features" access rights)

> Settings > Modules > Update Modules List.

Now you will find your module into the list. You can search your module from the search menu. Go to Installed Modules, remove filter Installed, now type your module name. You will find you module. Now you can Install you module.
