Ubuntu plugin installation
#1
I use GIMP 2.10.8
I want to install on my Ubuntu (18.04, x64) the 'Wavelet-denoise' plugin.


I tried downloading the tar.gz, unpacking, and using 'make' and 'make install'.
It falls short when attempting the 'make' with errors of not identifying the location of the GIMP main program and such.

Then I tried taking the 'wavelet-denoise.c' file from the win compilation, and compiling it to install. Again, error failure.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Can not give much advice other than just tried in a (k)ubuntu 18.04 VM and it compiles there. The code is basically 10 years old, so there are any amount of deprecated procedure warnings, but that is all they are, warnings, it compiles.

Do you have libgimp2.0-dev installed? that pulls in lots of dependencies for compiling plugins.
or
Are you using a Gimp flatpak or snap. These are 'sandboxed' you can not use for compiling.

   

Attached the compiled plugin and the output I got, it might give a clue. Unzip, pop the wavelet-denoise file in ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/ Check the permissions, should already be executable but check anyway

Another source that has a similar function is the gmic_gimp plugin where there is a smooth(wavelet) in the Repair section.

Rich2005 - Thanks a bunch.

I was not aware of the libgimp2.0-dev, and will apt-get install it, just in case.
The 'denoise' plugin is the only one I use outside the built-in.
Tried the recommended G'mic, but found it an overkill on the one hand, but not having the right tools for me on the other.

Basically, I use a very primitive way for post-production, that works for me (also, as a routine, it becomes second nature - and therefore fast).

I actually use a flavor of Ubuntu (the Ubuntu Budgie), which I really like most of the time.
