Re: [Gimp-developer] building GIMP from git

I downloaded GEGL and BABL from the links on page,
i.e. and I compiled and installed
them using the normal procedure (sudo ./configure && make && make install).

Thus GEGL and BABL are not built from git, and they are installed in the
system directories, not under a special prefix. Your articles seem to
suggest that I should have chosen the second solution, but does not suggest that.

Since GEGL is installed in only one place, i.e. /usr/local/lib/, I don't
understand where GIMP could find it in a wrong place.

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
