Plug-in Resynthesizer not Found (Big Sur) - potatogater - 03-11-2021

I'm new to GIMP and have read that the resynthesizer plug-in is an easier way of removing an object from a photo while maintaining the background so I tried to download it. I'm using an M1 Macbook Air running GIMP v2.10.22 and I've followed each step from Davies Media Design Tutorial ( However when I try to use the plug-in (Filters>Enhance>Heal Selection), a dialog box always appears saying this:

An error occurred running python_fu_heal_selection
error: procedure not found
More Information:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/Applications/", line 740, in response
dialog.res = run_script(params)
File "/Applications/", line 361, in run_script
return apply(function, params)
File "/Applications/", line 148, in heal_selection
pdb.plug_in_resynthesizer(timg, tdrawable, 0,0, useBorder, work_drawable.ID, -1, -1, 0.0, 0.117, 16, 500)
error: procedure not found
Any help would be appreciated!

It might be the plugin is incompatible with your macOS / Gimp 2.10.22 versions. There are reports about intrusive mac security issues see:

Otherwise, are you sure the plugin files resynthesize & resynthesize_gui are set as executable. Looks like this in an old mac VM and old Gimp 2.10 (and works there)
