Missing lib file
Just put the latest version of G'MIC into Gimp 2.10.8 under Ubuntu 18.04. It does not appear. When I start Gimp from the terminal it says " not found".
Advice please as to where I can find this file and how to install it.

(It also tells me that canberra-gtk-module is missing, but it has been reporting that for some time and appears to make no difference to the operation of Gimp.)

First try in a terminal

sudo apt install libqt5widgets*

That will pull in some dependencies, you might need to keep an eye open for more missing lib packages

Thanks for the quick reply.

Followed your instructions - now get  "/home/david/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/gmic_gimp_qt: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `Qt_5.10' not found (required by /home/david/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/gmic_gimp_qt)"

Do I understand that I have a previous version? Any advice very welcome!

I can get that error message as well. The only gmic_gimp for linux 2.10 is compiled using Debian Sid and does not seem to be compatible with 'buntu 18.04 The regular download section and pre-release both the same. very slow, must be busy.

Try this one I just compiled it a couple of hours ago for my own use. It says Gimp 2.9 in the gmic display but take no notice. This is a kubuntu 18.04 & Gimp 2.10.8 (VM).


The usual, unzip pop in ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins permissions should be set but check anyway and remove the previous version.

Installed your newly compiled version. Now it tells me that it is missing ""

After a bit of a search I was able to find a .deb file and install, so now back in business!

Thanks for all your help.
