I have a dev sandbox, where I configured openERP from bazaar and did some development. My addon works there as expected.
Now I want to copy my addon for further testing on another system, where my users will start testing. On my new host I see in the openERP log

2013-12-20 08:16:58,241 2332 INFO ? openerp: OpenERP version 7.0-20131216-002410
2013-12-20 08:16:58,241 2332 INFO ? openerp: addons paths: /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons

=> I've coppied my addon zFiveSol there and restarted openERP.

root@hp7800:~# ls -lrt /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons | grep z
drwxr-xr-x  5 root root  4096 Dec 16 13:46 anonymization
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root  4096 Dec 20 10:33 zFiveSol

After that I did "Module Update" from the openERP administration, but I still can't find my module in the app list... Also I dont' see error/warning in /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log, even thou I've set it in debug mode.

Can someone help me how to troubleshoot this? What am I missing? the addon works on my openERP 7 dev environment, why is it not even detected on my quality system?

Regards, Pavel

Looks like my mistake - Found my addon under "Installed Modules", not under Apps, as I expected. Also had to remove the default filter "Installed".
