Script-Fu disappeared from top menu bar SOLVED

Post#1 by RJKD » 18 Jun 2017, 11:38


Those Gimp Chat members may have already seen this post there. How I manage this is remarkable!
I recently installed latest G'MIC and also had to 'add' some preferences by way of Edit>Preference>Folders>Plug-ins. And I fear I've screwed up again. I've 'lost' Python-Fu from the top menu bar, also sota chrome and 'create new guide' from the Image menu.
I don't expect miracles, however if anyone has any notion of where I've gone wrong, I sure would appreciate any help / guidance.

Thankyou in advance.

How do you install G'MIC, by way of the installer or the file? With the installer you don't have to do it through preference.I had a problem once with the Installer, so I like install it myself by placing the whole G'MIC folder in the .gimp-2.8 plugin folder then go to the Edit>Preference>Folders>Plug-ins.
Try to delete all the G'MIC plugin and all the files associated with the plugin, then reinstall again. If you have Windows you can open the .gimp-2.8 plugin folder and sort by date. Just delete the most recent files associated with G'MIC. Hope this help RJKD

Thankyou Conbagui, I'm embarrassed to say it's actually Script-Fu I've lost, sorry about that, another bad day at the office.

Did you deleted anything from your .gimp-2.8\ scripts folder? Is all the script pack files "Script-FU" are in that folder .gimp-2.8\scripts Folder?

Make sure that all the files are in here and restart Gimp. Go to: Edit>Preference>Plugin>Scripts and make sure you have the directory as the one marked in the illustration.

Thankyou for your help and patience. I had deleted the 'lib' folder, I did a system restore and all's well. It would appear i have to learn the hard way. This winter while I'm not working so much I'm going to take full inventory and follow rich2005's - example, less is more. Someone else said they only install a plug-in when they need to use it, I'll probably do the same with patterns, brushes and gradients, keeping my directory lean. Thankyou again.

RJKD - do you use the 'Add on Collection Manager' from Ofnuts?

This plug-in it allows you to keep your GIMP tidy by storing all your fonts, gradients, patterns, pallettes and scripts in 'offline folders' and then allows you to bring the ones you want in and out very easily as you need them via the Help menu. I would not be without it and it reduces all the clutter as you add more and mor to GIMP.

Script at -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-t ... s/scripts/

Instructions at -
http://gimp-tools.sourceforge.net/managementtools.shtml

There is also a thread about this script in Gimp Chat too (by Molly if I remmber correctly). Any way it may help you out.

Thankyou OMG, I do use it, however I think for now I want to go down the route of 'trimming' my directory. When I first started with Gimp i used to plan (albeit outline) my projects, for a good while now I've been like a squirrel on speed collecting stuff I may never use. Crazy.
