    Re: How do I install plug-ins?

    Go to your program folders, and open GIMP's. then click share, then gimp, then 2.0, then click the scripts folder. Just copy and paste'm there. ;D You need to restart GIMP to get it to work though, unless if it's not up.

    The program folder is located in your hard drive, which can be accessed from My Computer. The hard drive has a letter to represent it (The default is C:).

    Hope that helps ;)

    here is how you can find the folder path for your plugins.. its taken from gimper's latest pattern tutorial. so instead of the pattern folder you would be looking for the script folder, if you look at the image you can see scripts under fonts

    OK, that was just confusing...


    Anyway, I tried doing what Rsim said, but not exactly (since I'm using Linux...), that didn't work. Then I saw your "How to install brushes topic" I figured it would be the same with plug-ins, only you put them in the plug-ins folder. Now I ask:


    Where's the plug-ins in GIMP?>_<

    no need to call names&nbsp; :mad:. what roy tried to explain was spot on, if you go into gimp's preference and then folders>plug-ins it will show you the path of gimps plug-ins folder regardless of which OS your using...

    you just received your first warning

    Lost in thought, please send search party....
    Home Page:
    in this tut i explain how to get to the dir in ubuntu/linux so
    http://gimper.net/index.php?topic=261.0
    once in the gimp folder go to the plugins folder and paste the plugin there also,
    if ud like gimp to always show in ur home dir
    go to edit-->preferences (in ur file browser) then show hidden files and folders and backups
    then gimp folder will always be in home dir, and u can just paste plugins/brushes etc in the appropriate folder inside the .gimp-2.4 folder&nbsp; :)
