Installing Gimp Plugins

If you ever want to install plugins for The Gimp, the image editing app, you'll have to first install the gimp-dev and glib-dev packages.  It's easy.  You can use the Synaptic Package Manager or apt-get.  But the names are tricky.  Instead of gimp-dev and glib-dev, they're called:

  • libgimp2.0-dev
  • libglib2.0-dev
