After years of not having the Resynthesizer plugins since I had them a long time ago (Gimp 2.6?) and the stopped working at some point, I finally dug into the problem again a couple of weeks ago on Gimp 2.10.8. I got it working, the Heal Selection plugin was shining in the Filters>Enhance menu and it worked flawlessly. I think it is a lot better that the Inpaint tool in G’mic.
So yesterday Gimp was updated to 2.10.10. I was happy about that for some other reasons, but when I looked for Heal Selection it was gone!!! I checked my file manager, all the plugins are still present in the correct folder. Checked Gimp Preferences>Folders, and the plugin folder is still correct. So what has happened? Is something changed in 2.10.10 that breaks plugins that worked in 2.10.8? I haven’t seen anything about that in the release notes. And for such a minor update it should not either. Does anyone know?
And by the way, I’m on Linux Mint 19.1 with Gimp from Otto Kesselgulasch’s PPA: http://ppa.launchpad.net/otto-kesselgulasch/gimp/ubuntu bionic main
