Note that there are other plugins installed, like
(used for audio input where available). To cover everything, a simpler
approach would be:

    ln -s /usr/local/lib/freerdp/guac*.so /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/freerdp/

It's worth noting that the reason what you were doing earlier was not
working was that the FreeRDP libraries were not present in
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu but rather /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu. Though
the former path would have been correct on 64-bit Debian, the path on
32-bit Debian is different. The path will vary across distribution as
well, so when in doubt, a good first step is to locate libfreerdp*.so
- that will determine the base path of where the "freerdp"
subdirectory needs to be, which may not initially exist.

There is no "/usr/local/lib/freerdp/", nor any need to have
a copy of present in FreeRDP's plugin directory. The system
linker will find it in the system-wide location to which it was
installed. Adding this symbolic link will have no effect.

There is no need to restart guacd for this. You only need to restart
guacd after upgrading to a new Guacamole version.

Glad to hear it.
