My question solved, check my own answer below..

Hello All.. I'm learning to create module in openERP 7. So I found web_hello module on /usr/share/pyshared/openerp/addons directory. I duplicate it into web_hello2 and change 'name' in __openerp__.py into 'Web Hello 2'.

Following this guide http://acespritechblog.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/how-to-install-new-module-in-openerp-7-0/

I try to click on Installed Modules, after that remove the filter "Installed" and write 'Hello 2' but my module won't show up. Anyone have a solution? Thanks.. :)

You have to do following steps

1- setting ---->Modules----> Update

2- setting ---->Modules----> Update Module List

3- restart your computer or the server (log out then log in)

now you will found it if not retry steps 1 and 2

When You copy and past you need to change internal code of files ..... I think you need to read to learn how to write your first module

Finally i get my module working. Here is what I do:

  • Check the value of addons_path in configuration file located at /etc/openerp/openerp-server.conf
  • I get this value /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons
  • Then, i put my module there.
  • Update my module list
  • My new module show up! :)

Thanks everyone!
