Installing Ionic Native in Capacitor

I have installed a few Ionic native packages and followed the instructions on how to link them into capacitor:

npx cap update

However it only picks up the facebook Native package and none of the others. I am trying to use the File Ionic Native package as capacitors doesn’t do what I need it to do. Because its not picked up by capacitor i get these logs:

:zap:️ [warn] - Native: tried accessing the File plugin but it’s not installed.

:zap:️ [warn] - Install the File plugin: 'ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-file’

Do you have the cordova file plugin installed?

No because I am using Capacitor and not Cordova - if we wish to use Ionic-native Plugins, we are instructed to install from npm and then run npx cap update to sync them with cordova

@nathantaal - my mistake - you were correct. I had installed the Ionic-Native wrapper but hadn’t actually ran

npm i cordova-plugin-file

and then followed that with npx cap update.
