[ Lce : Local contrast enhancement, abbreviated to fit in the editing window ]
I’ve been using G’MIC gimp plugins for a few months now, and the one plugin I almost-always use is Local contrast enhancement (I take three variants of the raw image at different EV adjustments and merge them - that generally makes things soft, sometimes so soft that it’s hard to see the detail). I build everything from source, and I build fresh systems every few months.
Until a few hours ago I’ve been compiling the gimp_gtk plugins, but after looking at Arch linux I finally found out how to build the qt version (download extra tarball, sed the .pro file, yadda, yadda).
Until yesterday I had thought all was fine - then I went back to the current build on my gimp-2.8 machine (2.0.2) and realised the Local contrast enhancement plugin was not in the menu - yet the same version on two gimp-2.9 machines was fine.
So, I’ve now built the 2.0.3 gimp_qt plugins on one of those 2.9 machines - and again the Local contrast enhancement plugin is not on the menu.
Any ideas, please ?
