HI....GIMP is frustrating me more than I had expected. I have GIMP 2.8.2 for MAC with Mountain Lion, I got the GIMP from lisanet.de. I am trying to install a 3rd party Python script called "Spirograph". I DL'd it, clicked on it, got an X-Code version, but now what do I do with it?
I don't know where to put it, I don't know how to get any new plug-ins into GiMP. I feel like I am trying to steer an ocean liner with a couple of canoe paddles.
Can anyone help this very very very newbie to GiMP? Thanks!
P.S. I tried the method on the very first post but I don't know if it worked or not? What would show up if it did?
Unlike OP, I think it´s better to put scripts and plugins in the Gimp user folder. In case You delete Gimp from Applications, You lose all your plugins too unless You have them backupped somewhere.
The problem with Lion and later is that user folder is hidden. You can access it by holding option button and it will show up in Go menu.
User/Library/Application Support/Gimp/plug-ins or scripts.
For most plugins and scripts You also need to enable executable permission for admin/user. Otherwise it won´t show up at all in Gimp.
Easiest way to do this is to use a freeware tool called "BatCHMod". You can get it from Macupdate or straight from Lagentesoft.
I did see this pin is quite old but it could help new Mac Gimp users. I myself was not a huge fan in the Mac side until 2.8 release.
