Where do I put plugin's .so file and .desktop file.

For portable reason, I want some methods to determine the place where I should place my *.so and *.desktop file in.

For different linux distribution, the install place is different as well. For example, Debian 8 users need to place *.so in /usr/lib/xfce4/panel-plugins and *.desktop in /usr/share/xfce4/panel-plugins. However, for Fedora 24 users, these place are /usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/plugins/ and /usr/share/xfce4/panel/plugins/.

Xfce must have some rules for searching plugins (maybe environment variables), so how could I know the place to install plugin files on a certain Linux distribution.
