How to install Python plugins in GIMP ubuntu hardy

GUI Method

Copy your .py file into the directory .gimp2.4/plug-ins . This is a hidden directory, you don’t see it in the file browser. With Nautilus you can toggle the display of the hidden files with Ctrl-H.

Then make the file executable by right clicking, selecting “Properties” from the menu and activate “Execute” in the permissions tab.

If GIMP was running, restart it.

Enter this:

cp ~/.gimp2.4/plug-ins
chmod a+x ~/.gimp2.4/plug-ins/

Restart GIMP
