Photoshop Plugin (GIMP)

Postby bef on Fri Apr 06, 2007 11:22 am

Here is a copy of my post on GIMPtalk forums;
http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/topic/Pho ... 443-1.html
Hello,
I am attempting to install support for Photoshop plug-in's in GIMP.

First I saw this thread;
http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/topic/Big ... 592-1.html

and followed the link to;
http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/pspi.html

I then downloaded gimp-pspi-1.0.5.ubuntu.i386.tar.gz {Ubuntu 5.10 binary}, extracted it, and placed pspi and pspi.exe.so in to /home/bef/.gimp-2.2/plug-ins

When I then loaded GIMP, I did not find Xtns:Photoshop Plug-in Settings as was advised in the README

Here is said readme,
You should have three files:
README.linux, this file
pspi, a small shell script
pspi.exe.so, the binary that wine runs

Copy pspi and pspi.exe.so to your personal GIMP plug-ins folder,
typically ~/.gimp-2.2/plug-ins .

When you run GIMP it will issue a warning "wire_read(): error" as
pspi.exe.so isn't a GIMP plug-in. This warning is harmless (GIMP just
ignores that file then), but if you want to avoid it, move pspi.exe.so
somewhere else and modify the pspi script to point to its new location
instead.

After starting GIMP, go to the Xtns:Photoshop Plug-in Settings and
enter the folder where you are going to keep the 3rd-party Photoshop
plug-ins (.8bf files) that you want to use in GIMP.


Any advice?

When GIMP opens it says "Querying new plug-ins - pspi..." in the bootsplash. Yet there's not anything in Xtns to do with PS plug-ins.
