Hello all.

I'm trying to build GIMP-2.9 as explained on I'm using Ubuntu

Everything seems to work smootly, but when I try using gimp-2.9 I get the
error message:

GEGL operation missing!

GIMP requires the GEGL operation "gegl:maze".
This operation cannot be found. Check your
GEGL install and ensure it has been compiled
with any dependencies required for GIMP.

​What am I doing wrong?​ When I build GEGL, the only warnings I get after
configuring it are that the Vala support is missing, as well as avformat
amd umfpack.

Thanks for any help.

It sort of sounds like GIMP isn't finding a recent enough version of
GEGL. Did you install babl from git and GEGL from git in the same prefix
as GIMP from git?

In case they might be helpful, I put up some articles on building and
updating GIMP from git:

Building GIMP for artists and photographers

Updating GIMP for artists and photographers

The second article also explains how to use the git log to see the
latest updates.

Hmm, also, as shown in the first article, based on a discussion on this list awhile back, sometimes even when building in a prefix, GIMP looks in the wrong place unless you add a line about the GIO_EXTRA_MODULES, as per the following (your linux OS might need lib64 instead of lib);

export PATH=$PREFIX/bin:$PATH
export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I $PREFIX/share/aclocal"
export GIO_EXTRA_MODULES=/usr/lib/gio/modules
export SRC_DIR=$HOME/code/gimplch/build
