Re: [Gimp-developer] GIMP can't find libmypaint-gegl

Sorry, I meant to say "in case you didn't install to the standard
directories"; that needs to be done so that the shared libraries can be
found in non-standard dirs.

Hello Ellen,

I had exactly this problem today, and as a newcomer found it all extremely
frustrating, but I manged to figure it out at last (you got way further
than me by the beginning, BTW):

add "use_sharedlib=yes" to scons

And just in case you installed to /usr/local, remember to update
/etc/ and use ldconfig


P.S: Hope I posted to the list now. Sorry.

I updated and tried to rebuild GIMP from git, with the following error:

checking for LIBMYPAINTGEGL... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libmypaint-gegl >= 1.1) were not

No package 'libmypaint-gegl' found

There isn't any libmypaint or libmypaint-gegl in Gentoo portage, and
installing mypaint from Gentoo portage didn't fix the problem.

I compiled libmypaint from git (
in the prefix with babl/GEGL/GIMP, using the command:

scons prefix=$HOME/data/gimp/gimpdefault/install enable_gegl=true

which put the file "libmypaint-gegl.a" and "libmypaint.a" in the install
prefix, in the lib folder.

But GIMP still says it can't find libmypaint-gegl. How do I fix this so
GIMP can compile?
