I am running Ubuntu 12.04 x64 desktop DVD, and I have installed GIMP 2.6.12 from the Ubuntu Software Center. I need a plug-in for batch resizing of images, and found one. I downloaded the plug-in, extracted in my downloads folder. The read-me says to make and make install. I tried "make" via the terminal and I am getting an error. The plugin I am trying to install is http://www.alessandrofrancesconi.it/projects/bimp/. The full output in the terminal from my make command to the end is(sorry total noob for GNU/Linux and StackExchange here and don't know how to properly insert code):

The problem was, was that in the read-me, he states that "gimp-dev" package needs to be installed for plugin compilation for Gimp. I looked for that but it has a different name on ubuntu.packages.com(and Debian) called libgimp2.0-dev. Worked after installation of that. Contacted the developer on GitHub and he responded and will update in the future release. Thanks

I don't know the protocol here. Should he accept his answer to close the question? –  gecko May 8 '12 at 3:10
    
I tried installing this library and the ones Welenofsky suggested but I still get this error. –  Peter Lawrey Jan 30 '13 at 8:46

It might be that you do not have the GTK+ development libraries installed. You may fix it by installing GTK+

try

sudo apt-get install libgtkmm-3.0-1 && sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev

You probably answered this long ago but in case you hit a problem like this in the future, you can use the search tool at packages.ubuntu.com to find out what package supplies a file.
