How to install g'mic plugin onto gimp with Debian Jessie


When I installed the debian OS it came with GIMP image editor as part of the package.
I have since found there is a g'mic plugin with added editing functions which can be downloaded.
The GIMP website says linux OSs will have the g'mic plugin in their own repos.
So what is the command to install g'mic onto the existing GIMP software on the debian OS?
Thanks for reading.

did you read the instructions on the source code?

it is a command line tool and a gimp plugin
two programs are built
read the README , then the makefile in the src folder

the makefile is well DOCUMENTED
to quote it
Quote:
File : Makefile
# ( Makefile for GNU 'make' utility )
#
# Description : Makefile for compiling :
#
# . the G'MIC command line tool (type 'make cli').
# . the G'MIC plug-in for GIMP (type 'make gimp').
# . the G'MIC interpreter, as a C++ library (type 'make lib').
# . the G'MIC C library (type 'make libc' or 'make staticlibc').
# . the ZArt software (type 'make zart').
# . To compile all of them, just type 'make', or 'make all').
#
# ( http://gmic.eu )

if you do not need a security camera options disable the "zart" part of the make file or do not build it

to build and install
Code:
make all
------ or this -----
make cli
make gimp 

su 
---- root password ----

make install
this installs it to the default /usr

It says here that there is a package gimp-gmic. Have you tried that? (It's recommended because the version should automatically match with the GIMP etc.).

the make file makes use of the "gimptool" installed with gimp
and therefor matches the version of gimp installed

No, I haven't read the instructions on the source code. I'm not familiar with installing source code and then compiling it.

G'mic is a plugin to the GIMP software. I was wondering if debian had an apt-get command to install a plugin to existing software.

With MS and Mac OS, I think G'mic can be simply downloaded and installed onto the existing software. These OSs don't normally compile source code.

I went to the link you've provided and then ran the command
Code:
apt-get install gimp-gmic
.
My GIMP software now has G'mic installed. However it doesn't work. From the link given, it seems I may be missing a number of dependencies.

A plugin for Firefox on debian can be installed by the click of one button.
I was wondering if it was possible to do the same for the G'mic plugin on debian as well.

The debian link is informative but not useful. The ubuntu help sites are much more useful. But I haven't come across one about G'mic.

what do you MEAN be "it dose not work"???????
open a image in gimp and at the bottom of the "filters" menu is G'Mic

CLICK IT!!!!

that opens up a new gui window with a ton of filters

or

are you referring to the terminal version that can handle 16 bit,32 bit , and 64 bit images
THAT is not the gimp plugin

Code:
gmic --help 
------- and this ------
man gmic

Thank you. What command might a newbie use to install G'mic on debian?

This website http://gmic.eu/download.shtml is saying I can click a button to add a plugin on existing software. It's not asking me to read source code or compile software.
However, I was wondering if I could install g'mic through the debian repos instead.

for the terminal ( text only - you have to type commands) see post #2
Code:
make cli
make install
this is if you have all the dependencies installed
like gcc and autotools and build essentials

Ok, you're right.
I have to 'double-click' on the filter for the filter variables to appear on the right-hand pane.
Thank you very much.

Very interesting.
However, your previous reply has sorted out the problem.
