tif2xcf (perl plugins don't register)

Jason Pearce writes:

I found this plugin on the web
tif2xcf
http://www.vierpi.de/panotools-gimp.html and i am having trouble installing it i have had a go at the instructions given on the website

I tried downloading and installing it in my plugins directory (copied to ~/.gimp-1.2/plug-ins and chmod 755) -- it does get run on startup (gimp --verbose mentions it) but it doesn't register itself properly. It runs from the command line.

But I'm not sure my other perl plugins are registering either -- I seem to have lots of perl files in /usr/local/lib/gimp but none of them actually show up in the menus where they try to register themselves), and gimp --verbose doesn't give me any hints about why this might be; it rewrites my .pluginrc and for most perl plugins I've checked, the slot where the menu location shows up just gets written as "" regardless of what the plugin wants. There's nothing in the perl error/warning log in Xtns/Perl/Control Conter except "Fatal Message" (no further information). Gimp experts: what might I be missing here?

Jason: It looks like tif2xcf assumes you've already run PTStitcher. Did you actually get it to run? I didn't have much luck with that either (looks like it'll take a lot of moving files around to get it to find all the files it needs, not to mention finding a jdk that it likes).

The other package on that page you listed, panotools-gimp, did install for me and shows up in the gimp menus, but I haven't figured out the magic incantation to make it actually create a panorama; all I've managed to get it to do is apply lens distortion filters.

you need to have the pdl (perl data language) http://pdl.perl.org/ for many (not all) of the perl plug-ins to work.

I count around 6 with PDL and over 60 without in the basic distro. So s/many/few/. Dunno if tif2xcf requires it, statistics always lie. :]

okay, many of the perl plug-ins that i use a lot need the pdl. seems like this has been a problem since i moved up to perl 5.5. i don't really know what it is.

i do know that if you are running perl 5.5 or above and you don't have the pdl installed, there are several useful scripts that you will not have access to via a gimp menu. a couple of the guides scripts, color2alpha and terral text are the plug-ins that i have the most recent experience with.

Yes, that was my problem. After installing PDL, and removing my pluginrc so that gimp would try again for all the plugins it missed, now I have lots more menu items. Thanks, Carol!

apparently i gave you wrong advice. perhaps seth and gsr can help you to get your perl plug-ins to work.
