i made a mods folder in the minetest folder home/.minetest/mods
i put locked sign and money mod in minetest folder
i get on minetest and there is no new mods on the game.
i dont know how to install it
also i had to make mods folder
is there something i forgot to do
or did i do something wrong.
the mods are named locked_sign and money, do i need to change the names or something.

Your directories should be organized as follows:

~$/.minetest/mods/locked_sign
~$/.minetest/mods/money

After you put the mod folders in the right place, the mods will be available in minetest so you can enable them in the worlds you want.

I believe you should preferably play with minetest installed by ppa. I also use ubuntu 16.

ppa:minetestdevs/stable

Here is a short article I created to do this with only 3 commands. But you need to uninstall the current minetest.
