i'm writing this plugin and i need to deactivate it when NextGen is deactivated:

<?php
/*
Plugin Name: Plugin Name
Description: Description
Version: 1.0
Author: Author
Author URI: Author URI
*/

// ini_set( "display_errors", 0);

global $nextgenUrl;
$nextgenUrl = str_replace('/','\\',WP_PLUGIN_DIR.'nextgen-gallery\nggallery.php');

register_deactivation_hook( $nextgenUrl , 'disattiva' );

[... other code ...]

function disattiva(){
    deactivate_plugins(__FILE__);
}

but it doesn't work. Any idea? :(

I've also used these urls:

$nextgenUrl = 'nextgen-gallery\nggallery.php';
$nextgenUrl = '/nextgen-gallery/nggallery.php';

and still it doesn't work.

You've got to actually check is_plugin_active. I would use something more like this, shamelessly stolen and modified from here:

register_activation_hook( __FILE__, 'dependentplugin_activate' );

function dependentplugin_activate()
{
  require_once( ABSPATH . '/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php' );

  if ( is_plugin_active( 'nextgen-gallery/nggallery.php' ) )
  {
    require_once ( WP_PLUGIN_DIR . '/nextgen-gallery/nggallery.php' );
  }
  else
  {
     // deactivate dependent plugin
    deactivate_plugins( __FILE__);
    //   throw new Exception('Requires another plugin!');
   //  exit();
    exit ('Requires another plugin!');
   }
}

Edit: just realize you're looking for deactivate, not activate. Still, maybe this will get your brain working in the right direction.

    I did it this way register_deactivation_hook( $nextgenUrl , 'disattiva' ); function disattiva(){ require_once( ABSPATH . '/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php' ); deactivate_plugins( __FILE__); } still nothing :( Mar 14, 2012 at 16:31

I resolve this with $_GET['action']

if($_GET['action'] == 'deactivate')
{
    //Do something
}

    Out of curiosity: how do you know that it is the NextGen Gallery Plugin being deactivated, and not some other Plugin? Jun 7, 2012 at 12:41

    @ChipBennett $_GET['plugin'] holds the name.
