sooooo, I was looking at gimpscripts and didn't see any reference to operating systems. Could this be done with tags or icons or ? Or if most will work on all systems then perhaps a notation about if the script or plug-in doesn't work on a certain OS? I have quite a few plug-ins that are in the plug-in folder but are not accessible to my gimp.
Yes, as paynek pointed out, click details for all the specifics associated with the script/plug-in. If the scripts are OS specific, I'll tag that but afaik, there are no scripts on there that can't be ran in the operating systems listed for that script. The script-fu scripts should run across Windows/Linux/MAC, and as long as you have Python installed properly, python scripts should work across platforms, as well. There are currently no binary plug-ins on Gimp Scripts that are OS specific. I might consider hosting some of those and if I do, I will clearly tag the post/file as being OS specific.
HOWEVER This information is NOT reliable due to: A. The information not being supplied when the script is uploaded and B. Even if the information is supplied, the admins don't take any notice and apply a blanket all platforms default. (At least that was the case with the script I uploaded).
Was that the "Test For Duplicates" script, paynek? I certainly try to reflect the information provided by the uploader but there could have been an error made. Your script, being a .scm, wouldn't it run across all platforms? You can also leave a comment on that script's page (or send me a PM) and let me know if I don't a have the info correct.
I need to start passing out passwords to the script writers so that can edit the information add scripts/posts themselves, if they want. I'm gonna do that soon. The filebase module, where scripts are stored, has been under rapid development and I've been waiting for the developer to get out a few more stable releases before doing that.
If the person uploading the file uses the defaults or doesn't specify, I will attempt to determine that info before posting live.
