How to install plugins?

Asked by Mark on 2007-04-14

I am a new user to Linux. I have Ubuntu up and running but I noticed that Gwenview plugins were not included in the Ubuntu install, so I was wondering how to install them. I've looked around but found no place that has offered info on how to do this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the question.

Did you install kipi-plugins? I believe this package also contains gwenview plugins.

I hope this helps

Thanks for the tip. I now realize that kipi needs KDE and my system didn't seem to like KDE as long as I was using gnome so I have just switched to Kubuntu, which is Ubuntu with a KDE interface.

I now have some of the plugins and am going to look for how to install kipi-plugins.

I'll report back if I am successful.

Is that right it want's to instal 90MB of programs, including Postfix (the mailserver) and Konquerer (the browser) amongst a load of others so I can just edit the data in a EXIFs tags... Surely some mistake?

>I also had installed kipi-plugins but no plugins in gwenview

the same for me on kubuntu 8.10

Rene Pieters (rene-pieters) said : #8

Same thing here: no kipi-plugins available in gwenview on kubuntu 8.10
Looks like something is broken.

Try now. It's there in universe. Check

Phaedrus (camerons-web) said : #10

Sorry, my mistake. I was saying the package is there, which is true, though the version of gwenview in intrepid doesn't seem to know about kipi-plugins because the version of kipi-plugins in intrepid is a KDE3 version. Jaunty has a beta KDE4 version of kipi, but I haven't tried it.
