launching an executable via lua under windows, e.g. gimp, doesn’t work at the moment because df.check_if_bin_exists() in the lua-script throws an error.
A simple workaround to get gimp going is the following:
- remove/comment the following lines within contrib/gimp.lua (right at the start of gimp_edit()).
if not df.check_if_bin_exists(“gimp”) then
dt.print_error(_(“GIMP not found”))
- copy gimpVERSION.exe in the bin-folder to gimp.exe (omit the VERSION-index)
- add the path to gimp’s bin-folder to the windows path (e.g. “c:\program files\gimpVERSION\bin”)
- add the following line to luarc:
When starting darktable the new option “Edit with GIMP” should now appear under “lighttable:export selected”. Give it a try …
