Problem installing a gimp plugin under Fedora 15

I am trying to install the gimp plugin GimpLensFun under gnome 3 in Fedora 15. This is probably a gimp problem and I've posted my question in the relevant places, but I wondered if anyone here had a suggestion.

Conceivably it might have something to do with gnome 3.

I have the gimp plugin running on my main machine running gimp 2.6.11. I've gone to the GimpLensFun website and donwloaded it on my Fedora 15 machine and tried to get gimp to recognize it after putting it in my
.gimp-2.6/plug-ins directory. But gimp doesn't see it.

Any ideas?

Re: Problem installing a gimp plugin under Fedora 15

did you install the lensfun packages from the fedora repos? The gimp lensfun plugin uses the libs from the lensfun package.

Code:
yum install lensfun lensfun-devel
you also will probably need the exiv2 packages as well.

Code:
yum install exiv2 exiv2-devel exiv2-libs

I checked all of those.

It still doesn't work

Re: Problem installing a gimp plugin under Fedora 15

just tried it here, and got the same results you get if I try to use the built plug-in included in the gimp lensfun package.

But, if I make my own plug-in from the source, it works.

extract the gimp lensfun archive, change to the gimplensfun-0.2.1 folder, and just run make in that folder as your regular user. Then copy the gimplensfun file it creates into your ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins folder.

This time I compiled it and then copied it to ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins. It worked. So I guess that was the problem.
