I just installed digikam 8.0 for Manjaro. Gmic is up to version 3.2.3 and I can see a gmic-qt executable in /usr/bin but the plugin is missing from /usr/lib/qt/plugins/digikam/gmic-qt
I also downloaded digikam sourcecode and compiled but no joy. Any hints how I can enable the Gmic plugin in digikam? I’m probably overlooking something incredibly trivial but the more I look, the less I see…(not entirely unusual for me )
That’s probably because @Mike_Bing has installed Digikam from the repository instead ?
We have the same problem with Krita : packagers don’t add the G’MIC-Qt plug-in by default to the build of these software.
@David_Tschumperle , you are absolutely correct but I have no problem with configuring and compiling digikam from source. Just need to know which GMIC source package to include and how to reference it when doing the compilation (like f.i. an “–iwith_gmix-qt” switch or similar.
I actively avoid appimages and flatpaks on my system and prefer to run without them TBH.
