I use GIMP on my computer, on which I run Ubuntu linux instead of Windows. I've been practicing on some of the tuts here (which are awesome, by the way!). The main problem I've run into is when I start to work on mountains and such, where the prevalent methods seem to incorporate plugins such as Felimage which, unfortunately for me, are specifically for Windows.

I was interested in finding out if anyone else does their work on linux and have found similar plugins or other workarounds for this problem. I would love to learn about these methods.

The source is provided: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/fimg-gmplugins/felimage-noise-0.1.1.tar.gz?download

From the INSTALL file:


The simplest way to compile this package is:

1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're
using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
`sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
`configure' itself.

Running `configure' takes awhile. While running, it prints some
messages telling which features it is checking for.

2. Type `make' to compile the package.

3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with
the package.

4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
documentation.

5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the
files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. There is
also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly
for the package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get
all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came
with the distribution.

Ok, I downloaded the file and got as far as configuration. From there, when I try to run make or makefile, it just says 'command not found'. If I try to sh it, it says 'Can't open file'. Any thoughts?

Note: I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 if that helps any

Make sure you installed the build-essential package


sudo apt-get install build-essential

I followed your advice and installed the build-essential package, and I'm still getting the same problem, and getting a bit frustrated. Maybe it's just an incompatibility with my system's version?

I checked back over the configure statements upon running it, and found this in the messages. It seems to say that the version I'm using ( the latest, 2.8 ) is later than the program is updated for.


configure: error: Package requirements (gimp-2.0 >= 2.2.0 gimpui-2.0 >= 2.2.0) were not met.

Oh, do you have the GIMP development packages installed?


sudo apt-get install libgimp2.0-dev

Thanks that's just what I needed to do.
