No display support on macOS?

(Walok Wang) #1

I installed gmic via homebrew on macOS, and -display parameter is skipped, says there is no display support. Should I installed Xquartz or something else to get display support?

And I’m wondering how can I get a list of filters I can use…? Thank you.

Maybe @KaRo has an answer to this ?

I have homebrew not installed. It don’t mix up well with MacPorts.

gmic has to be build with display support. In any case you have to install XQuartz since the display (and interactive functions) base on X11. Perhaps there is an option in the homebrew formula?

Filter listings are in the Gimp plugin or in the gmic reference

Thank you :slight_smile: I checked the formula file, x11 support is disabled and there is no option to enable it, maybe I can make a pull request.

By the way, how can I get the corresponding command of an action, like applying black & white effect in th gui ? Thank you :smile:

hmm ENABLE_X=on would not do it?

best by starting Gimp from terminal. typically the log is switched on and
appears in the terminal!

My fault, I mean no option in the homebrew :stuck_out_tongue:

And for the latter question, can’t it be extracted from the updateXXX.gmic file? I found some word related to the action after the #@gui, but I’m not familiar with the script language now…

Hi, to build gmic with homebrew and display:

Install XQuartz
edit the gmic formula and enable_X=ON
make a link: ln -s /opt/X11/include/X11 /usr/local/include/X11
 Install gmic with brew install gmic —with-ffmpeg --with-libtiff --with-openexr

By the way, I think the formula is not ready, there is no possibility to build the plugin nor works the git build (—HEAD)
