Ardour and plugins

I have downloaded ardour and some plugin packages from the repository. But I don’t know how to get ardour to find the packages. Is there a simple way? When I did a search it found the files. But I do not want to do that path because I expect that it will change over time.

When I am in the file browser there is no simple /lib directory.

nixpkgs patches Ardour to scan for plugins in several additional places—

—so it looks like just adding a package via one of those options and re-scanning in Ardour should work.
