Installing GIMP plugins on a Widows 7 Machine

rich2005
I have installed give the 2.8.2 portable onto a machine running Windows 7
professional.

I have installed gimp onto a memory stick so that I can move it from machine to
machine as required.

The base installation works fine and I have no difficulties with that part of
it. However when I tried to install plug-ins, I can't get them to work no matter
where I install them.

I have installed them in the location specified by the plug-in preferences

c:\users\username\gimp portable\GIMPPortable\data\.gimp\plug-ins
and
c:\users\username\gimp portable\GIMPPortable\App\gimp\\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins

I have also copied them to in various obscure folders on the memory stick we
gimp is installed eg Gimp Portable\GIMPPORTABLE\data\\.gimp\.geg-0.0\plug-ins
based on instructions in online posts

Do I have to do something in addition to copying them to the correct folder?

So far, nothing works .

All of the SCM files that came with the installation are installed in this
folder Gimp Portable\GIMPPORTABLE\gimp\share\gimp\2.0\scripts

Help please

Thanks Peregrinus

No you did not.

Wrong place, needs to be on the memory stick

Who told you to do that? Bad information.

No, with a caveat regarding compiled plug-ins.

-------------

Is the version, Gimp 2.8.20 rather than 2.8.2?

If it is 2.8.2 I recommend dumping that and getting the latest, which is Gimp
2.8.22

Determine the location of the default scripts / plug-ins folders in the Gimp
Preferences dialogue.

In Gimp Edit -> Preferences -> Folders then the scripts or plug-ins entries.

The plugins entry is shown in the attached screenshot.

On your ***memory stick*** in the gimp installation, ***make two new folders***

GIMPPortable\Data\.gimp\plug-ins (note the '-') and
GIMPPortable\Data\.gimp\scripts.

The obvious: scripts - something.scm go in scripts see: attached screenshot.

For plugins: something.py go in plug-ins

For compiled plugins, something.exe / something.dll go in the same place but
make sure you use **32 bit compiled** plugins. This portable Gimp is a 32 bit
Windows application.

Hi Rich,

thank you so much for the clear and concise information you supplied to me, I
really appreciate the time and effort involved.

It's been grandson weekend and with four of them, i did not get a chance to
implement your suggestions, but will do soon.

I have upgraded to 2.8.22, so thank you for that.

Once again, thanks for all your efforts


Regards



Cameron
