I’m starting to look at gimp-2.99.16. My first task is to get the g’mic qt plugin built - did that using /usr/local for gimp-2.99 and qt6.
I installed the plugin in /usr/local/lib/gimp/2.99/plug-ins/ but it doesn’t show.
Running gimp-2.99 from a term I see
Skipping potential plug-in ‘/usr/local/lib/gimp/2.99/plug-ins/gmic_gimp_qt’: plug-ins must be installed in subdirectories.
Is there any guidance on setting up such directories, and perhaps other steps such as making them visible to menus ?
Also, how on earth do people manage with the edit window here these days ? I’m getting two short lines visible in firefox, making it very hard to post.
The location where GIMP expects plug-ins can be easily found by going to Preferences → Folders → Plug-ins. You can even add new folders there too where GIMP should look.
Each plug-in needs to be in its own folder, that has the same name as the main plug-in. So in the case of gmic_gimp_qt you would have a folder with that name inside the plug-ins folder, and in that folder would reside all gmic related files. The manual mentions this here, but it could probably be improved. We are open to suggestions.
