For all systems, you should already have The GIMP
installed on your computer. It seems that the plugin doesn't work with Gimp version 2.3, reports welcome. You can get The GIMP here
here for Mac OS X and here for Unix/Linux.
After downloading the Windows version of the
plugin, just unzip the file and put it into your GIMP plugins directory.
The plugins directory should be located at C:\Program
Files\GIMP-2.2\lib\gimp\2.0\plugins (replace the beginning of this
path by wherever you installed the GIMP program).
Then quit The GIMP if it was open, and launch it again to let it load
the new plugin.
If you're using Debian or (K,X)ubuntu, just install the package gimp-texturize,
with a package manager like synaptic or with the command line:
sudo apt-get install gimp-texturize .
Thanks to Dennis Lichtenthäler, there is an
ebuild for Gentoo Linux and its package management system, Portage.
Here is a howto about Installing 3rd party ebuilds.
If the configure script tells you that it needs libraries that
are not yet installed (the GIMP development environment for instance),
install them first with your usual package manager then run
- Expand the archive :
tar xvzf texturize_gimp_plugin_version_1.0.tgz
- Move to the texturize directory :
- Run the configure script, compile and install the plugin :
./configure && make && make install
This last command (make install) needs to be run
with root privileges (make it sudo make install
if you have sudo installed). Once installed, restart Gimp.
- Download and unzip the binary.
- Make it executable, with something like:
chmod a+x texturize_mac
- Copy this file to either
- Restart The Gimp.
