Hi, I am new to Gimp and like to try compiling Gimp plug-ins using gimptool-2.0, but the compilation shows message.
I compile follow the instruction from GIMP developer Resources http://developer.gimp.org/writing-a-plug-in/1/index.html :
gimptool-2.0 --install hello.c
It shows error below :
'pkg-config' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
No output from 'pkg-config' --libs gimpui-2.0
Where does the 'pkg-config' comes from ?
Do I need a separate c compiler to compile or gimptool-2.0 will do the compiling and installation of the plug-in. The Gimp version I installed is Gimp-2.8.
There are documentation says that a pkgconfig file (.pc) is required, do I need to create this .pc file ?
Can anyone advise how to solve this error?
