Installing G'MIC

Post#1 by tim » 14 Sep 2017, 16:06


I factory reset my laptop so i had to get G'MIC again (Win 64bit installer). So it installed Qt version.
But the my GIMP didn't see it because the default folder it installed under was C:\Users\Tin\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins\gmic_gimp_qt\
So I manually cut everything inside that folder and pasted in C:\Users\Tin\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins\ and GIMP saw it and it worked.
My question is do you think this is a bug in G'MIC installer? defaulting to a subfolder under plug-ins\ instead of just putting it in plug-ins?
I am not sure.

I had trouble at first with installing the QT version but then I was trying to keep an older version also.Finally I had to install into one plug in folder and put everything else in another. Then goes to preferences and point to those folders. Now there is not a problem. I don't know if I was doing something wrong at first, or if this is an error in the installer.

I have never used the G'Mic installer.
Maybe it sets up to what the Gimp defaults are supposed to be,
not really what they are.
I just drop everything into a plug-in folder and let it overwrite old gmic dlls from
last time. I have never seen a newer gmic dll not work with an older gmic version
so I quit saving the old dll's in case the old gmic version won't work.
Also, I have 6 or 7 gmic versions installed (well dropped into the plug-in folder), but only a couple will run at the
same time so I change the extentions to have only 2 versions as .exe
Also I add the version number to the gmic.exe file so it is easy to see
which versions are currently exe without starting gimp to look.
gmic176
gmic178.exe
gmic200
gmic202qt.exe

When I first started trying to write python scripts
I had been using one by Dinasset that I liked, so I learned
how to make changes in it. It used G'mic. So on
the first script I wrote, I used G'mic also and on every one
after that until the amount time spend updating the scripts to run
on every version of gmic was more time then I had, and I wasn't
learning anything more about gimp-python. So that is why
all the versions (for testing), and why I haven't been using G'Mic in scripts
at this time.
There is supposed to be a more version change friendly way
to call gmic, and I read david's manual, but still don't know
if it works with script or just makes a filter for Gmic.
David never answered my questions, so I gave it up for now.
But I am still slowly learning more about python.

yeah i had G'Mic changing and stopped working old script so I tend to shy away from scripts that depend on G'Mic as well.

Just so folk are aware, as I've posted previously, sometimes on my machine, when I call G'MIC it doesn't show in Gimp - HOWEVER it can be found on task bar. I suspect some folk may think it hasn't installed and could get confused as it shows in their directory - Windows grrrrrr

RJKD, perhaps you installed the 'Stand Alone' G'mic version and the gimp version by accident and sometimes it brings G'Mic up without
Gimp. G'Mic is a stand alone, but also has versions for other software. just a thought...
