Just a reminder : GIMP 2.99 is an experimental version, where things are evolving quickly, e.g. the plug-in API. G’MIC is an external project to GIMP, so we don’t necessarily wish to follow GIMP’s API evolutions in its development version.
When the stable GIMP 3.0 version is released, we’ll be happy to try and offer a GIMP-compatible version of the G’MIC-Qt plug-in.
In the meantime, we (the G’MIC developers) are willing to take into account any pull-requests proposed by users so that G’MIC-Qt can run under GIMP 2.99, as long as this does not break the compatibility of the code with the API of the current stable version of GIMP.
I understand, but it’s still frustrating to see versions that are compiled for Gimp 2.99 on Windows and not for us on Linux, even though this softwares come from Linux, we’re more blocked than people on Windows!
For Windows, they have this version:
I cannot test it I don’t have any computer on Windows!
Thank you but I can’t get them! it asks me for a login and password:

I do have an account but it does not work!
Yet if I ask for a got clone of php-barcode-generator it works without asking for any account / password:
I think the Appimage and flatpack versions are a bit special, because they embed their own versions of the libraries, and so the plug-in must be compiled with the exact same versions as well (which are unfortunately not the same as the one installed by default on your system).
I must admit i’ve never tried to compile the G’MIC-Qt for an AppImage/Flatpack version of GIMP. My guess is that it’s kinda hard TBH.
