Re: [Gimp-developer] how to build json-glib in a prefix when building gimp from git in a prefix?

Many thanks to everyone who helped sort out how to build json-glib. I did finally manage to build json-glib in a prefix on Gentoo, using these commands:

cd json-glib
mkdir build
cd build
meson --prefix=$PREFIX ..
ninja install

Are you sure you need json-glib ?

Json-glib *is* needed to build gimp 2.10. I build gimp 2.8/2.10 on
CentOS 6 and 7 boxes, where no package is available (for the latest 2.8
and 2.10 at all), and I build quite all the necessary deps (it's a lot
and the cross-deps are a nightmare), json-glib is required at some
step. From what I see in my build script, gegl 0.3/0.4 need it.

Yeah, you are right.  I thought it must be a new dep for gimp
itself.  And I didn't remember using it.  But now that I look at my
scripts I can see that it is GEGL which needs it.

So for Elle, the version is whatever your GEGL needs.  A quick look
suggests json-glib-1.0 which both json-glib-1.2 and -1.4 (and
probably even -1.0) provided.
