I downloaded and installed the rpm for Fedora 28. But when I open GIMP (2.10 unstable), I don’t see anything in the Filters menu for G’MIC. What else do i need to do?
Hm. The command line says version 2.1.8 - that sounds rather old.
You should request that your packager update the version.
Gmic is included in the latest gimp appimage from @Carmelo_DrRaw!
That seems to be @Josef radinger
Indeed, this might be the easiest and quickest way to the test the bleeding-edge versions of GIMP and G’MIC. Packages are updated on a weekly base.
Where are the downloads?
Thanks. But how do you run it?
I tried clicking on it, was prompted for the root password, but then nothing else happens.
Sorry, I should have mentioned it… Download the package, make it executable - for example using this command from the terminal:
chmod u+x GIMP_AppImage-*
Then run it as any other Linux executable.
You can find more informations about AppImage packages here.
EDIT: if you want to make this more permanent and easy to use, you can do the following:
- create a
$HOME/.local/binfolder if not existing yet, and add it to your
Put this command in your
$HOME/.bashrcfile so that it will be automatically set next time you log in
- copy the GIMP appimage as
At this point, next time you will invoke
gimp without an explicit path, the AppImage will be executed.
The AppImage should also support desktop integration - it should be listed in the applications menu and “Open with…” contextual menu of the file manager, but I have to admit that I have not used this feature a lot, so it will require some testing.
