Missing liblqr-1-0.dll
For the last couple of days I've been receiving a message saying there was a system error with gimp-lqr-plugin.exe and the program can't start because of a missing dll (liblqr-1-0.dll) Gimp would continue to load and seems to work ok. Anyway I uninstalled Gimp and downloaded the latest version but I still get the message. Can anyone tell me how to fix the problem or if I can just remove this plugin? Thanks.

RE: Missing liblqr-1-0.dll
You do not say where you got the plug-in. The homepage is

It is a very useful plugin for stretching/shrinking images while keeping defined parts undistorted.

I think Partha's build of Gimp includes the liquid-rescale plug-in. AFAIK it is not in the standard Win Gimp package.

unpacking the plug-in installer gives this.

In path ....\gimp\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins the 3 executables

In the path....\gimp\share\gimp\2.0\scripts this script.

If you do not use the plugin, hunt these out and delete them. Careful you do not delete anything else.

You could also try getting the installer and reinstalling followed by uninstalling from the Win uninstall menu.

Thanks for your reply. I'm pretty sure I got it from the GIMP plug in registry or at least found the link for it there. But that was several months ago so why it stopped working suddenly is a guess. I'll delete (carefully) those files and if I find I miss it will reinstall again. Won't have to delete the dll though. I've already searched my machine for that ....
