It's been about a decade since I've done significant work on a *nix machine, but I've installed Ubuntu primarily with the purpose in mind of developing Gimp plugins, and I'm eager to get started. So, now what?
How do I set up a dev environment and pull down (or point to) the necessary libs and source files? Could somebody walk me through from a fresh new environment to compiling a "Hello, Filter!"?
It seems like it should be incredibly simple, because every FAQ or tutorial that I find online seems to assume that I've made it past the "insert code here" phase and am actually wrestling with real problems.
