gimp-2.9.6-x64 startup errors

The latest gmic_gimp plugin is a bit of a monster, a folder containing 60 - 70 MB of files. The web site does mention somewhere that you need to install to a separate folder then add that location in Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Plug-ins

*** Whatever you have already installed, remove it. ***

The default is adding a sub-folder to the existing plug-ins.

For Gimp 2.9.6 I advise a completely separate location, one that is easily located.

Using Partha 2.9.6 (gimp.org the same) and latest gmic_gimp_qt installer I used a location in C:\Users\my-name see screenshot 1

Added that to the Gimp 2.9 plugins paths see 2

Does it work, does here. see 3

The first run is a little slow, gmic creates a folder in ..\appdata\roaming for its settings

When up and running, make sure you update the filters from the gmic_gimp interface.

Hey Rich, thanks for the tips. So I reinstalled gimp and gmic, and made sure there were no leftovers, but it still have problems with gmic, even if it is installed in separate location. And the same "gmic_gimp_qt.exe - Entry Point Not Found" error is still there. :/

I know what the problem is but AFAIK it has been fixed with the latest gmic_gimp. If you have a clean installation.

Go to this thread where you will find a replacement libcairo file

http://gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=15844

This about the whys and wherefores

https://discuss.pixls.us/t/using-the-windows-installer-for-version-2-0-3-of-gmic/4825

Just a reminder, when you install Gimp 2.9.x it will migrate your old Gimp 2.8 profile resources including any old plugins that might/might-not work.

To clean up, rename your Gimp 2.8 profile (if you have one) to disable, delete the existing Gimp 2.9 profile, start Gimp 2.9 to create a new default Gimp profile.

gimp-2.9.6-x64 startup errors

With my builds, please DO NOT install G'MIC from somewhere else. It's already built in.

Your errors are a results of DLLs being dumped into the GIMP plugin folder. I have no clue why you have them there.

Because this is how third-party plug-ins are supposed to bundle DLL files they may use. Third-party plug-ins are also supposed to live in either a subdirectory of an existing plug-ins (2.9.x searches these by default now) folder or an additional folder altogether.

Note that GIMP 2.9.x versions may show additional errors which are silently ignored for stable releases.

Right, so replacing libcairo fixed that error, but gimp still doesn't like my gmic installation. I have tried putting gmic in various places inside and outside of gimp installation (always in separate folder), tried that with zipped version and with installer, I always have those 'unable to run plugin' errors. The Gimp version I'm using now is the one from www.gimp.org, not from Partha. Before I'll try another builds I'd rather use all my options, I am a bit afraid of making even bigger mess after installing another Gimp build over what I have here.

It is counter-productive to say that DLLs should be in the same folder as the plugins and then to turn around and throw up an error. Don't you think?

gimp-2.9.6-x64 startup errors

czerw,

Consider unzipping the plugins to their own directory outside the GIMP install and point to it afterwards (so you can just remove the folder/path from prefs if needed to revert. We have a tutorial on how to do this on the website:

OK, I am running in a Win10 VM so easy to get a clean install. Fortunately Gimp keeps everything well contained so uninstalling Gimp.x.x then deleting the Gimp 2.9 profile in C:\Users\yourname\appdata\ roaming should clean things up.

Using the gimp.org Gimp 2.9.6 and replacing libcairo does get gmic_gimp working. As you correctly say, still a load of error messages about the gmic dll's.

I think you will have to accept these until a specific Windows gmic_gimp for Gimp 2.9 is released.

Other than that, as Partha says, his version incorporates a version of gmic_gimp, but will not be the latest version since gmic updates very regularly.

I did that Pat, did not work.

What did work was getting 'GIMP 2.9.6 64-bit Standard Edition portable' from partha.com. I played a bit with tools and gmic, and all is fine, no errors. So... thanks Partha, and thank all you guys for help :)
