Refocus plugin for The GIMP


Has anyone had any luck installing the Refocus plugin for The GIMP.
When I've tried running "make install-admin-bin" or "make install-bin" I get an error2 message.
Thanks.

cwizardzone,

I haven't tried that plugin, (sounds interesting though)

but i recently installed the dcraw plugin to gimp2. I used

/usr/bin/gimptool-2.0 --install plug-in.c

for a precompiled plugin I think it would be

/usr/bin/gimptool-2.0 --install-bin plug-in

you can run
gimptool-2.0 --help

in my case, it did matter which user I was when I ran it, initially I installed it for root by mistake

I tried to install the refocus plugin, I failed at the make stage!
the plugin seems to be for earlier versions of gimp, does it compile successfully for you?

Edit: found this:

ok, got it working, its pretty cool too.

get
refocus-0.9.1.tar.gz from here:

http://registry.gimp.org/plugin?id=2835

in a console as user just type ./configure (with no arguments)
then make
if all went well, cd into src, (you will see the executable) and do

gimptool-2.0 --install-bin refocus

done. In Gimp, go to Filters>Enhance>Refocus

Thanks. Glad it worked for you, but, unfortunately, it won't "make" for me. I get, oh, around, 624 errors, before it quits with a "error 1" message.

Oh.

I am no expert at debugging 624 make errors. I can email you the binary I created if you wish.
just out of interest, what was the first error?

Hi cwizardzone,

I got that error as well at some point.
I think there is something that breaks in the source directory after a failed 'make', even after a 'make clean'
I was messing with different configure options and environment variables like GIMPTOOL=/usr/bin/gimptool-2.0 and getting nowhere.
Then I rebooted, did a clean extract from the tarball, did as per my previous post, and it worked.
I have the same pkg-config versions as Slack 12, but my Gtk+2 version is 2.12.4 as comes with current, (not 2.10.13 as comes with slack 12). No idea if this matters.
