Gmic and Gimp 2.10.0
#1
Want to use the g'mic plugin http://www.gmic.eu in Gimp 2.10.0

At the moment the popular QT version does not work in the regular installation from http://www.gimp.org

One way is use a Partha or a samj spin-off version that includes that and other plugins. The snag with these is, come to update gmic in a few weeks time and a complete re-installation is required.

Using the regular Gimp 2.10.0 the gmic GTK version works, It has all the functionality of the QT version, it is missing the search facility and some eye-candy, otherwise works. Need to install an update, just replace the downloaded gmic folder.

How to install.

1. Get the zipped version from http://www.gmic.eu

2. Un-zip and put that somewhere easy to find. Your C:\User\your-name\  folder is ok

3. Start Gimp up and in Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Plug-ins set the path to gmic, OK and close.

4. Restart Gimp for the setting to take effect

5. Does it work? It does here. Remember to refresh the filters to get the full 500.

Edit and Update: There is a QT version fixed for Gimp 2.10.0

I've downloaded Partha's 2.10 version, as I ran into problems installing the official version, haven't installed it yet, everything's "on-hold" at the moment as I'm experiencing Windows Update-induced armageddon lol.
Anyway a quick question about g'mic qt in 2.8.22, every time I use a filter to transform multiple layers, it does the job but leaves the original layers in place, so if I start out with 20-odd layers I end up with 40-odd. All the output settings are set to default, so it should just replace them, but it doesn't. This has been going on since the 2.2.0 release I think and still persists. Any ideas?

Linux Gimp 2.8.22 / gmic-qt / ver 2.2.2

You might have to give a few more details but a quick test with six layers. Not able to reproduce the duplicating of layers.

Looking at the Input/Output

Input layers - All visible worked but Active and above did not.

Output Mode - Both In Place (default) and New Image worked without duplicating layers.

Need a gmic expert.

It does not work for me, try with the new link that says version fixed for gimp 2.10.0 and the gmic is not installed, at the beginning of gimp it throws me several errors and when it finally opens the gmic is not installed, I proceed as indicated and does not respond

Recommend going back to using the GTK version if QT is not working. Make sure you remove all gmic files so you start from a clean base.
