How to make a plugin?
Okay, I've been trying to figure out how to make a plugin, and I can't find a decent tutorial anywhere. I started reading them, and it was like "what language are we using? Where am I supposed to get that header file from? ARE YOU TELLING ME I NEED TO COMPILE THE PLUGIN BUILDER???"

I've had some mild coding experience - some Hello World C programs, a few Java failures, a bit of dabbling in HTML and JavaScript, and I'm just now beginning to sink my teeth into Python, which is everything I was looking for in Java.

I basically need a tutorial on how to make a Gimp plugin. I'm running linux about 90% of the time (I only boot into Windows for gaming,) and I would prefer to do everything on Linux. However, I have absolutely no luck at compiling code others wrote. Every program that I've tried to compile had a LOAD of build dependencies, and that kind of left me traumatized, so I'd prefer to avoid compiling altogether. (I can usually compile my own code, and I'm fine compiling Python, though.)
