GIMP# on OS-X… almostJuly 15, 2007 at 9:10 pm | Posted in C#, GIMP | 6 Comments
I made some progress putting GIMP# on OS-X. There were numerous hurdles, like compiling Gtk#, installing and running GIMP, setting the right paths, forgetting to install the development packages of several libs, handling with different extensions for dynamic libraries, etc. etc. Most of this was of course caused by my unfamiliarity with the Mac as a development platform. However I’m proud to present you the following screenshot:
I know, this is not a fully functional GIMP# plug-in running, but if you look closely you can see that the ncp plug-in which is written in C#, registers itself. It still crashes as soon as I try to run it, but hopefully I will be able to fix that after a bit of debugging.
Once I get it running, I will start experimenting with an installer for the Mac. Any suggestions on a good one are welcome.
Update (July 16): the AverageBlur plug-in works fine. This is about the only plug-in that doesn’t use any Gtk# stuff. All other plug-ins still crash as soon as I try to run them.
