linux mods

How do you put mods under linux? In windows you just put the file in the mods folder, but how do you do this under linux?

For me (Xubuntu 12.04 and 13.04), inside the "/home/USER/" directory there is a hidden folder called ".minetest"
Inside that folder there should be a folder called "mods" -- if there isn't, make one.
Then extract the .zip file or what-have-you of the mod into the "/home/USER/.minetest/mods/" folder and rename it to whatever the name of the mod is supposed to be (it's listed in the forum thread for each mod).
If you're absolutely lost, do a search for "minetest.conf" -- whatever directory that shows up in is the right one to create a "mods" folder in.

That is for system-wide installation of Minetest.
For RUN_IN_PLACE there is a mods/ folder in the minetest directory, just like in the windows builds.

Yes, but is it system wide installed, or is a RUN_IN_PLACE build?
