Hello all.

I'm trying to build GIMP-2.9 as explained on
http://www.gimp.org/source/howtos/gimp-git-build.html. I'm using Ubuntu
15.04.

Everything seems to work smootly, but when I try using gimp-2.9 I get the
error message:

GEGL operation missing!

GIMP requires the GEGL operation "gegl:maze".
This operation cannot be found. Check your
GEGL install and ensure it has been compiled
with any dependencies required for GIMP.

​What am I doing wrong?​ When I build GEGL, the only warnings I get after
configuring it are that the Vala support is missing, as well as avformat
amd umfpack.

Thanks for any help.


It sort of sounds like GIMP isn't finding a recent enough version of
GEGL. Did you install babl from git and GEGL from git in the same prefix
as GIMP from git?

In case they might be helpful, I put up some articles on building and
updating GIMP from git:

Building GIMP for artists and photographers
http://ninedegreesbelow.com/photography/build-gimp-in-prefix-for-artists.html


Updating GIMP for artists and photographers
http://ninedegreesbelow.com/photography/update-gimp-in-prefix-for-artists.html


The second article also explains how to use the git log to see the
latest updates.


Hmm, also, as shown in the first article, based on a discussion on this list awhile back, sometimes even when building in a prefix, GIMP looks in the wrong place unless you add a line about the GIO_EXTRA_MODULES, as per the following (your linux OS might need lib64 instead of lib);

PREFIX=$HOME/code/gimplch/install
export PATH=$PREFIX/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PREFIX/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export XDG_DATA_DIRS=$PREFIX/share:$XDG_DATA_DIRS
export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I $PREFIX/share/aclocal"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
export GIO_EXTRA_MODULES=/usr/lib/gio/modules
export SRC_DIR=$HOME/code/gimplch/build
