Description

gimptool-2.0 is a tool that can, among other things, build plug-ins or scripts and install them if they are distributed in one source file.

gimptool-2.0 can also be used by programs that need to know what libraries and include-paths GIMP was compiled with. gimptool-2.0 uses pkg-config for this task. For use in Makefiles, it is recommended that you use pkg-config directly instead of calling gimptool-2.0.

Options

gimptool-2.0 accepts the following options:

—version
Print the currently installed version of GIMP on the standard output.
—help
Print out the help blurb, showing commonly used commandline options.
—quiet
Run quietly without echoing any of the build commands.
—silent
Run silently without echoing any of the build commands. Same as —quiet.
-n
Test mode. Print the commands but don’t actually execute them. Useful for making dry runs for testing.
—just-print
Test mode. Print the commands but don’t actually execute them. Same as -n.
—dry-run
Test mode. Print the commands but don’t actually execute them. Same as -n.
—recon
Test mode. Print the commands but don’t actually execute them. Same as -n.
—msvc-syntax
Useful on Windows. Outputs the compiler and linker flags in the syntax used by Microsoft’s toolchain. Passed to the pkg-config command that does most of gimptool-2.0’s work.
—bindir
Outputs the bindir used to install the GIMP.
—sbindir
Outputs the sbindir used to install the GIMP.
—libexecdir

—includedir
Outputs the includedir used to install the GIMP.
—gimpdatadir
Outputs the actual directory where the GIMP data files were installed.
—gimpplugindir
Outputs the actual directory where the GIMP plug-ins were installed.
—build plug-in.c

—uninstall-admin-bin plug-in
Uninstall plug-in from the system-wide GIMP plug-in directory (/usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins)
—uninstall-script script.scm
Uninstall script.scm from the user’s personal GIMP script directory ($HOME/.gimp-2.6/scripts)
—uninstall-admin-script script.scm

—libs
Print the linker flags that are necessary to link a GIMP plug-in.
—libs-noui
Print the linker flags that are necessary to link a GIMP plug-in, for plug-ins that do not require the GTK+ libraries.
—cflags
Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a GIMP plug-in.
—clags-noui
Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a GIMP plug-in for plug-ins that do not require the GTK+ libraries.
—prefix=PREFIX
If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that GIMP was built with when computing the output for the —cflags and —libs options. This option is also used for the exec prefix if —exec-prefix was not specified. This option must be specified before any —libs or —cflags options.
—exec-prefix=PREFIX
If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation exec prefix that GIMP was built with when computing the output for the —cflags and —libs options. This option must be specified before any —libs or —cflags options.

Environment

CC
to get the name of the desired C compiler.
CFLAGS
to get the preferred flags to pass to the C compiler for plug-in building.
DESTDIR
to add a prefix to the install/uninstall path.
LDFLAGS
to get the preferred flags for passing to the linker.
LIBS
for passing extra libs that may be needed in the build process. For example, LIBS=-lintl .
PKG_CONFIG
to get the location of the pkg-config program that is used to determine details about your glib, pango, gtk+ and gimp installation.
