[Solved] gimp-python - where

Post by mogensjaeger »

I am using the Mint 20 Cinnamon
I am using the Gimp 2.10.18
But I can't find the gimp-python plugin nessecary for the 'heal-selection' tool
I have found an old version of the gimp-python 2.8, but in the Mint 20 the 3.8 ver. is installed, and apparently, it is not backward compatible.
How do I get it to work?
Thanks in advance
Mogens

Thanks - I added their PPA, and then searched for gimp-python in the list, but without success.
I have the old version but can't figure out which package from their list I need to install in order to install the gimp-python package.
When I try to install the gimp-python package, I get the error message: "Dependency cannot be met; python:any"
How do I downgrade python3 to version 2.8?
Thanks in advance

Try to install python2 in your terminal first.

Code: Select all

sudo apt install python2.7

I ran the instal command, but got the message, that version 2.7.18 is installed
Again I ran the install of: gimp-python_2.10.8-2_amd64.deb
And again - same answer - "Dependency cannot be met; python:any"
What am I doing wrong? or what am I missing in my setup?
Thanks in advance

Get rid of Gimp 2.10.18 as it is outdated and surpased by a much better Gimp 2.10.20. Use the AppImage version, no need to worry about Python.

Thanks a lot - looks god.
I'm just not that tough on the purely technical thing about installing extra programs, so I do not want to get acquainted with 'appimage' programs - it ran fine, but Gimp could not 'find' my setup files, with i.a. changed keyboard shortcuts so I must have found a version 2.10.20
Something completely different is - I use Gimp purely privately, not professionally - I was tempted to try version 2.99.xx. How stable/safe is it?
Thanks in advance.

Your user profile for the appimage is: /home/user/.config/GIMP-AppImage/ . Put your files there. Don't use version 2.99.xx, it is strictly experimental. Stick with Gimp 2.10.20 with plugins appimage if you want plugins like G'mic already installed.

Thanks - I tried the appimage "version" and could see that the 'heal-selection' feature was included, so I found a link to a 'standard' installation of Gimp 2.10.20, but even though I installed everything I 'usually' install, it was not included.
I then found (preferences / maps) the address you also write, so almost everything works now - for printing photos I miss "gutenprint".
How do I link it to use in the "appimage" version?
Thanks in advance.

Never used gutenprint, so your on your own. I'd hunt down the plugin and copy it to your Plugins folder. Be sure to use the Gimp 2.10.20 (with plugins) as it comes with Resynthesizer already installed. Here is a direct link to the download file:

Thanks again
I am using the "with plugins" version - and I have still the Gimp 2.10.18 installed, so if I need to print, I just load the file there.
But no problem - at the moment I am busy/mostly working with restoring old photos digiticed from either slides or prints.

Install it from https://packages.debian.org/buster/gimp-python

Then you should be able to view 'python-fu', install other packages as needed.
