[solved] Where do you put scripts in Gimp in Mint?

Post by Hamstermoon »

I have a few scripts for Scriptfu which I am prefectly clear where to put in Windows (the gimp folder is in my own personal folder ) but not in Linux. Where do I install them in my home folder on Mint so they show up in 'scriptfu' so I can used them?

There is a hidden folder in your home directory called either .gimp-2.6 or .gimp-2.7, depending on which version you are using. The scripts folder is inside there.

To see hidden folders in Nautilus, press [Ctrl]+h

Acer Aspire 5332, Pentium dual core 2.2GHz, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, Linux Mint 11, Linux Mint Debian

The alternative is /usr/share/gimp/2.0/scripts

It requires superuser to access it.

When I build a new ops, this is one of the first things that I build from my current active ops.
