Unhappy Fedora 18 GIMP G'MIC plugin installed but not available to use.


Hi folks and greetings. So, the deal is just what I say in the title, I have downloaded the G'MIC plugin for GIMP, (I am using the 2.8 version), I extracted the file to the downloads folder and did copy/paste of the file to /username/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins and started GIMP but the plugin is not available to use under the Filters menu.
I don't really know if there is some repository that can be added to install extra plugins and scripts like the FX Foundry (that's a good one). I haven't found anything in google that could point out to a solution.
That's it for now, thanks in advance.

Oh, God, help me to don't be punnished and badly criticized for this I am such a fool! Well, I am a middleaged dumbass, what else can i say? I have it in the DNA!! I am really sorry for being such an ignorant and not trying harder. I had to give permissions to excecute as a program doing right click over it and in the Permissions tab that was it.

Thank you for reading and sorry for the inconvenience.

That even happens to us that have been using one version or another for 10 + or more years

it is one of those " Dhaa, I should have had a V8" moments

solved but ....

have fun with Gmic

i have been using that code since before the name change to gmic
it used to be called "GREYCstoration" and was part of the "Cimg.h" project


the gimp plugin is 8 bit only

but the terminal version of gmic can use images in the { bool | uchar | char | ushort | short | uint | int | float | double }
format

The terminal gmic has replaced ImageMagick for me
