Reason is that python support in Windows version of Gimp is disabled
Is possible enable it, for that is needed Unistall gimp, install
Python libraries (not only Python ) and then reinstall Gimp with the
"custom" option, and in the following dialog check the "python"
But do not worry to make it easier i grouped all that is needed
including Python in a single pack, with a almost idiot proof " how to
Pack is here
i done for Gimp 2.4 but i believe is still updated,anyway for me
still works with last gimp 2.6.1
again how to is included, you can't miss that text file is very
even more information on installing/running python on gimp windows
@fotocomix - I found the above reference a couple of days ago (I think
by googling [python gimp plugin]. Just thought I'd comment on the need
for reboots you stressed in your "IDIOTS NEVER READ THIS". Not sure if
anything has changed in GIMP between 2.4 and 2.6.1. I already had
Python25 and pygtk-2.12.1-2 but not the other two requirements.
<Image>Filters>Python-Fu>Console was NOT showing up.
I think all three of the packages have later versions since you created
the ZIP so I got them. With Gimp closed I installed the two I was
missing (pycairo-1.4.12-1, pygobject-2.14.1-1) and restarted GIMP.
Python-Fu showed up this time :-)
No reboots were necessary.
