Downloaded 'gmic_gimp_linux32.zip' dated 2011-08-06( version 1.5.0) from http://sourceforge.net/projects/gmic/files/
and as per 'readme' extracted to '$HOME/.gimp-2.x/plug-ins/' (for local installation),
or 'usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/' (for global installation).
But in both cases it is not working.
The file permissions are same as that of other plugins at 'usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/'
At last ,doubting the healthiness of the downloaded file,copied the properly working plugin from my mint9 partition to '$HOME/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/'
directory,but in vain.
Actually it should appear at the bottom of the 'filters' list and enabled if some image is open in gimp.
I never had such a problem earlier.
Has anybody faced this situation? Is there any solution?
