ORA File Format Support

Hello Everyone,

I am on Linux using GIMP 2.10.14 - looking for a way to export layers.

I saw a post that mentioned exporting to ora format, then opening the ora file as an archive to get to the files.

However, I do not see an option for ora files in the export menu. Also, if i change the preferences for default export to use ORA, it doesn’t work - I get the following error:

"The given filename does not have any known file extension. Please enter a known file extension or select a file format from the file format list."

If I try simply changing the file extension when exporting, I get the same error mentioned above.

Is there something else I need to do to enable ORA file support?

Thanks in advance

Should work with 2.10.14 It does here, kubuntu 18.04 / Gimp from PPA

The plugin is python /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/file-openraster/file-openraster.py

So first check that python is working. There should be a menu entry Filters -> Python-Fu

Then: Is it listed in file types ? see screenshot:

An exported file with extension changed to zip does unpack.

Providing python is working. There was a time back in Gimp 2.8.x days when the ora plugin did not work. At that time I used the plugin from:

https://github.com/MichaelMure/gimp-plugins/blob/master/pygimp/plug-ins/file-openraster.py You could try that. Just put in ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/ make sure it is executable.

Alternatives? Nothing that does not involve a bit of work on the user side. Gimp 2.10 can save a multi-page tiff. The occasional file viewer such as ocular can scroll through the tiff pages. ImageMagic command line can extract individual pages.

I installed from the ppa - otto-kesselgulasch No Python-fu in the filter menu - just Script-Fu No /usr/lib/gimp/2..1, but it exists in my home/.config

When i installed 2.10.14, I added the ppa, then upgraded - could that be the issue? I copied the py file you mentioned to ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins - still no luck.

I am thinking of uninstalling completely, and re-installing from ppa.

That information helps

The gimp-python package is no longer installed along with Gimp 2.10.14 - it requires a separate installation

in a terminal

sudo apt install gimp-python

You might want to install the mypaint brushes as well

sudo apt install mypaint-brushes

and if you get messages about the PPA

sudo apt-get --allow-releaseinfo-change update
