I have successfully added G'Mic to my Gimp Version 2.6.11 on OS: Mac OS X 10.6.8 64 bit twice now over the past year with zero problems. Recently (like yesterday) I installed Gimp Version 2.8.2 Stand Alone to my Mac and during the process, uninstalled all other remaining Gimp files for a FRESH START. This would include removing the "Gimp folder" directly from path: USERNAME/Library/Application Support. I'm understanding that version 2.8.2 of Gimp already has G'Mic installed, and confirmed/validated this by searching in 2.8.2: Gimp/Preferences/Folders/Plug-Ins/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Gimp/plug-ins. HOWEVER, G'mic is not in my Filters drop down menu. Okay..so I then tried several different things including reading COUNTLESS posts about this problem which usually helps me solve any problem. But this time to no avail. So long story short, I performed another complete uninstallation of all Gimp files. I even restarted my Mac. I reinstalled Gimp Version 2.6.11, reinstalled G'Mic as I had before, validated the folders and sub folders in 2.6.11: Edit/Preferences/Folders/Plug-Ins, showing it is there..and STILL NO G'MIC in Filters drop down menu. I am almost in tears over this..in fact, I was in tears last night trying desperately to recover my G'Mic. I am a professional photo retouch specialist. I have Photoshop CS6..and STILL rely HEAVILY on Gimp for MOST of my projects. I simply MUST have G'MIC. There are 2 EXEC icons in the download folder from the internet: GMIC and GMIC_GIMP. I NEED to know "which one, if not both", to put in the sub folder? I cannot remember what I did before. I've tried several combinations including both, just GMIC, and just GMIC_GIMP. NOTHING works. :,( PLEASE PLEASE HELP. I sooo need this problem solved for my work. Any help is most appreciated.
