Problem installing gimpLensFun plugin
I've been using GimpLensFun with gimp under Fedora 14. It
appears under Filter>Enhance.

I just installed Fedora 15 on another computer. There is the added
complication of Gnome 3, which I have yet to master, but that shouldn't
make any real difference.

I tried to install GimpLensFun on the new computer which is running gimp
2.6.12. I downloaded the tar file and copied GimpLensFun for AMD 64
bit, which is correct for the computer, into .gimp-2.6/plug-ins

But I can't find GimpLensFun in any filter or anywhere else.

I restarted gimp, logged out and logged in again, and I even rebooted without any luck.

On the old system, gimplensfun occurs in pluginrc, but it doesn't in
the new system, either in that form or as GimpLensFun.

What is wrong?

It must of course be made executable. The proper way to install a plugin is to use the "gimptool-2.0" command.

if all else fails, start Gimp from a command prompt with a --verbose parameter and checl for strange messages.

At the suggestion of the author of the plugin, I recompiled it by running make. The resulting binary worked fine when copied to ~/gimp-2.6/plug-ins.
