As explained in this other post, I am setting up an infrastructure on GitHub/TravisCI to compile and package some commonly used GIMP plug-ins.
The first thing I have worked on is a G’MIC GIMP plug-in for OSX, and after two weeks of struggling with the library dependencies I have finally succeeded to package a GMIC-Qt plug-in that seems to work properly with the official GIMP DMG.
As stated in the other post, the installation of the plug-in is rather simple. All one needs to do is download this archive and extract the contents in one of the following folders:
$HOME/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.10/plug-insif GIMP is installed in its default location (
@GIMP_APP@/Contents/Resources/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-insin the other cases, where
@GIMP_APP@must be replaced by the path to your GIMP app bundle.
It would be great if OSX users could try the plug-in and let me know wether it works or not for them…
@KaRo if I am not wrong you have been maintaining the OSX version of the G’MIC plugin in the past. Would you be interested to collaborate on this? Everything is available on GitHub: https://github.com/aferrero2707/gimp-plugins-collection
EDIT: @David_Tschumperle I forgot to mention that I had to apply this patch to the plug-in sources in order to correctly find the additional libraries and frameworks, needed by G’MIC and not included in the GIMP bundle. The patch allows to properly detect the absolute path of the
gmic_gimp_qt executable and set the
QT_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable accordingly.
