It is an old plugin, do not expect much from from github

According to your forum profile you are using WindowsXP. Is this correct? It does make a difference.

Next which version of Gimp are you using the latest Gimp 2.8.22 from gimp.org or something else?

This a screenshot in WindowsXP https://i.imgur.com/sjqPVz6.jpg

You need 4 files in your Gimp plug-ins folder
WindowsXP: Documents and Settings\"yourname"\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins
Windows7 and up: C:\Users\"yourname"\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins

beautify.exe border.exe simple-border.exe skin-whitening.exe

and two folders in your gimp profile ...the...\"yourname"\.gimp-2.8  folder

texture-border and rip-border

Come back with the necessary info for more assistance, if I know your version of Windows (32/64 bit) I can fix up a zip of the files.

- and i tried to to do all possible steps , and put it in every possible folder ..  i think the issues in the plugin it self ..! ? what should i do ?
 and is there a replacement ?!

thanks rich2005
Urgent change problem solved! when i moved the folder texture-border to user/ gimp / plugins ! and re copy it with focus again in the plugin folders in c and in user folder . and copy the 4 exe files to plugin folder alone without the whole folder ..

Pleased you fixed it yourself, that is the best way to learn. While you were fixing, I was preparing some files

For anyone else who wants to try this old monster Wink

64 bit version for Win7/Win10

The files in a zip are here: https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZBwHR7ZKfbCDsvHpzuN8e05Lxk0dpG6dVck 46 MB

1. Unzip and put the 4 'filename'.exe files in C:\Users\yourname\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins

2.The 2 folders in the zip go in C:\Users\yourname\.gimp-2.8

 good thing ! that you uploaded the pic ( Imgur pic )  i did not focus on the words as the pic , it is more eloquent for those who observe.

Perhaps the main reason, is creating texture-border folder in user/gimp/plugins , and moved the exe files ! as first . and the others steps surely ..

But crashes! Lot .. The github issues on it may will take years to get the answer. It is old and may be the owner or developer forgot it ..!
