GFourier has only been tested under Linux 2.2, GTK+ 1.2 and Gimp 1.2; reports of tests and patches for other systems will be welcomed.

First of all, uncompress GFourier using tar:

This will create a new directory called gfourier-?.?.? containing all the files of the distribution.

Then, compile and install GFourier using:

Hopefully, this will create and install the gfourier binary in your plug-ins directory. If you encounter any problem during this step, please check that you have installed GIMP and GTK properly, including development support; other standard development tools, like C compilers and headers, are also required. Feel free to email me if you are not able to compile GFourier.

The configure script provided has several options that are specific to GFourier:

  • --enable-debug: If GFourier is compiled with this option, it will produce debugging messages.
  • --enable-admin_install: Use this option if you want to install GFourier in a system-wide directory, and it will be automatically available to all the users in the system. You must be root to use this option.
  • --enable-fftw: This and other FFTW-related options are explained in the GFourier and FFTW page.

  • Now, you should be able to see a Fourier entry under the /Filters/Enhance/ menu (remember to restart GIMP, if it was already running). Go to the Instructions page to learn about how to use GFourier.

    If the configure script fails, change to the src directory and try the Makefile.orig file provided. You may need to edit it, if you want to change the default options. Then rename it to Makefile and do make install.
