I just built the latest Kate from repository. I couldn't get it to show the plugins. I then did make install, hoping that would fix it, but no. No plugins. They are in this directory:
I have a shell script in ~/.kde by the name of set-kate-vars.sh. (not sure this is the correct location...)
I found the script information in the installation instructions. This file contains:
export XDG_DATA_DIRS=$KATE_DIR/share:$(kde4-config --prefix)/share:$XDG_DATA_DIRS
I looked in the source code for something that sets the path to plugins but only found 'ktexteditor' set. I think it can't find the plugins because of the path and I see no environment variable for setting it. I'm not familiar with KDE and it's internals. I have used Kate for years and like it but it's not worth fooling with w/o plugins. Here is a console log when executing it:
[email protected]:~$ kate
Couldn't start kglobalaccel from org.kde.kglobalaccel.service: QDBusError("org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown", "The name org.kde.kglobalaccel was not provided by any .service files")
"Theme tree: (Oxygen)"
My opsys is Xubuntu 14.10, 64 bit. I appreciate any help very much, thanks!

It has been some time, but same situation here!
Have you found a solution?
