Using GIMP On CentOS-7, Problem

Wondering if anyone here has ever tried installing this

https://github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer

as a gimp plugin in CentOS-7, with gimp 2.8.16??

I find the installation instructions (for the binary tarball) are minimal and whatever I do, it doesn’t seem to appear in the gimp menus, as it should.

I’ve used an older version (0.14) from years ago in older versions of gimp, but how does one make this newer one work on C7?

I also tried building the source, but even “autoconfig” spewed some errors that are greek to me, so I, for the moment, gave up on that.

Advice will be appreciated, thanks in advance!

  • Your link to the binary tarball is also minimal, to the point of being nonexistent. :)

    It sounds like it was made for a different system, with Gimp installed in a different location. As a rule, you can’t use complicated binary packages made on one Linux type OS on a greatly different one.

    1. What is “autoconfig”? Do you mean autoconf, autoreconf, autogen.sh, or something else?

    2. By leaving the messages out, you’re implying that you think the messages will be Greek to everyone else here, too.

    Anyway, I was able to build the plugin with:

    $ git clone https://github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer.git
    $ cd resynthesizer
    $ sudo yum install gimp-devel
    $ ./autogen.sh
    $ make -j11 && sudo make install

    I have no idea if it runs, because I don’t use Gimp on this box, nor on any other. Still, I think that’s got it solved.
