in my system they show up all, but only 3 of them do work
I had to put both the .8bf and the .exe under a folder Google under PSPI accessible folder

I did that; plugin never showed up, Diego like I said. Might be a weird interaction with another PS filter I have (seen such behavior before). Not going to remove filters to find out though. Anyway, glad you got it to work. :)

Yes. At first, when I installed the program using installer, I added the GIMP path and it installed a copy of the 64-bit plugins in the GIMP folder which, of course, won't work. I manually deleted the folder then copied the 32-bit plugin and corresponding exe file to the GIMP PSPI directory. No plugin shows up unfortunately. :)

PSPI will only run the 32 bit version as it hasn't been compiled as 64 bit yet. Not for lack of trying lol :)
In my GIMP i have a folder named 8BF and subfolders under that. I created one named NIK and added a new install directory other than cc to the installer
1) Then i copied all the 32 bit and config files to that NIK folder
2) Removed the installed Google folder from the newly installed 8BF/Nik directory
3) Added the path to PSPI.

I lost the Impressionist GIMP menu link again but adding the code back to the pspirc file fixed that. :)
    <entrypoint menu-path="<Image>/Filters/Impressionist/Impressionist..." image-types="GRAY* RGB* " entrypoint="ENTRYPOINT1"/>

Results -
I was only able to get 8 plug-ins to show and 4 to work
viveza, both sharpening and the dfine 2

I suggest using the standalone executables instead.

As I already said, I did remove the 64-bit plugins and replaced them with the 32-bit plugins along with the executable inside and within my PS plugins director for PSPI. How does the link look in your pspirc file for NIC, Rod? I can just manually type that in it like I had to for Impressionist (and have to often; lol). :)

Hi.
If you are having trouble installing Nik on Linux with Wine because an error message appears, you must manually create this "resource" folder in the path shown by the error message and then press the "retry" button (I think is "retry" in English) in the error message window. Repeat this for each error message with new paths. This folders where you should create this "resource" folder inside them is "/home/YOUR_USER/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Google/

The executables are installed on "/home/YOUR_USER/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Google/Nik Collection/"

By the way, does anyone know how to call the Nik plugins from native Linux GIMP 2.9, 64 bit?

Anyway, shell out to the rescue. Added the following line to my shellout programs list and DFine works great. :)

  ["DFine", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Dfine 2\\Dfine 2 (64-Bit)\\Dfine2.exe\"", "png"],


Of course, your path might be different (or you are using a 32-bit OS). I suspect every other program works fine as well this way. Since all the 8bfs do is launch the executable anyway, this is the better solution for me. Again, thanks for RobA for creating this cool python plugin. It continues to amaze me. :)

Well, it didn't work for Silver FX Pro unfortunately. I noticed that with this program, you can actually open a file within it (stand-alone) whereas DFine has to be passed the image to be operated on. I'll check all the programs that are stand-alone capable and run them as such. The ones that require a passed image, my bet is Shellout can work with them. :)

OK; found out that the stand-alones can only open jpegs. They can save either jpegs or tiffs. For the stand-alones, if you want, you can always do save as and export the tiff before hitting the save button to return the resulting processed jpeg back to the GIMP. Anyway, below's my list and I checked that they all now work. :)

edit (3/28/2016):

You can open any file type (PNG/JPG/TIF) if you create a shortcut to the executable itself and drag the file on top of the executable; if you do this, just make sure do use a copy (not original). Unfortunately, for the 4 complete stand-alones, Shellout can only either use JPG or TIF (use TIF but you may sometimes get dialogue errors but GIMP will receive the updated edit).

Updated the list and added the pre-sharpener preset too (overlooked it last time since I thought it was something else; it's actually pretty cool for subtle edge sharpening without adding noise). :)
