Help with example in order I can reproduce your situation.
I made test with 8 plugins installed and only 2 active. Then I allowed user with read, activate_plugins capabilities in the role activate/deactivate only 2 plugins (1 active and 1 not active). User sees only those 2 plugins. Clarify on example, how he can work with other plugins. What I missed?
