resynthesizer gimp-python Linux ubuntu 20.04 all files to install
#1
I write this because today I almost got stuck installing the Resynthesizer plugin, and its dependencies so if it can help some one to not run across internet for a while....
Using my wife's laptop for few days now (GIMP 2.10.30 PPA from Panda Jim, Ubuntu-MATE 20.04.4 LTS just updated her laptop system yesterday after a year without update)
... and I saw that I did not have the resynthesizer plugin in GIMP, heal selection, heal transparency...

So I downloaded linux-resynth-2.03.zip from @rich2005 (thank you so much Rich) there ➤ https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Gimp-2...1#pid11261
Did not work.... yet, nothing in the menu. You can let everything in the GIMP's plugin directory (no worries it will work, later  Big Grin ).

I did check "Python -V" Python 2.7.18 was there, so it's not python2
So trying to install gimp-python...
Code:
sudo apt install gimp-python
But Ubuntu removed it from the apt list, no more, nada, finish  Angry
I did found this discussion https://discuss.pixls.us/t/gimp-python-n...4/17769/21 but the links got a 404 error
Looks like Ubuntu get some pleasure to make it difficult for us... Dodgy

Finally after some searches, I did found what's missing.
I downloaded from ➤ http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...e/p/pygtk/ near the bottom python-gtk2_2.24.0-6_amd64.deb
and the gimp-python from debian ➤ https://packages.debian.org/buster/amd64...n/download

Once you've downloaded all and BEFORE installing any thing ➤ You do need to install first
Code:
sudo apt install python python-cairo python-gobject-2
Then in that order Or with GDebi
Code:
cd Downloads
sudo dpkg -i python-gtk2_2.24.0-6_amd64.deb
and only then you can now install gimp-python (or with GDebi)
Code:
sudo dpkg -i gimp-python_2.10.8-2_amd64.deb

Then I opened GIMP and resynthesizer (that I left in the plugin directory) was finally there and working just fine on my test photo.

More generally it is a "missing python" issue as described here: https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Heal-S...4#pid18354

For anyone who does not want to go that route:

Top of that post, I added a comment that using Tas_mania's little appimage https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Python...-and-Focal is an easy way to get gimp-python running. While this is very 'buntu centric, and other disto users might have to resort to a flatpak, worth bearing in mind.
