Brief: Is there a way to install rabbitmq-plugins via a ubuntu package?


I have rabbitmq running ok in my ubuntu system, and now I'm trying to monitor what's going on via the management plugin. I'm following instructions, but can't execute

rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management

because my system does not have rabbitmq-plugins installed.

It's Ubuntu 11.10, and came with rabbitmq installed as a package (aptitude install rabbitmq-server librabbitmq-dev). The config and the server are running fine (the installed version is 2.5.0).

Thought that the plugin would get installed by installing "sudo aptitude install rabbitmq-plugins-common", but doing that does not install rabbitmq-plugins.

Is there a package that will install the plugin? I'd like to avoid if possible having to purge the rabbitmq server that is running ok, and then reinstall it via a download + build from source, all just to get the plugin.
