Hi, I am trying to install the GIMP Animation Package on OS X 10.5.7. I downloaded GIMP just fine and I am running it on X11. I also downloaded the binary file for GAP from an FTP link on the GIMP.org page: ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/plug-ins/v2.6/gap/ . The install is significantly more difficult than the GIMP download and I am new to mac, making it a little harder.

The install notes say to use the command line and cd to the gimp gap folder, which I have done(I do have some dos experience...). It also tells me to type "./configure" to do the build, but the command line returns an error that there is no valid C compiler in the directory. The install notes say that it is possible that the C compiler is not compatible with ANSI, and gives a possible work around using "./configure CC="cc -Ae", which returns the error "C Compiler cannot create executable".
The install notes say that if this command doesn't work, install pre-built binaries of the GNU C compiler.

I guess the real problem is this: I can't find the GNU CC binaries. If anyone can help me out with this, I would be thankful. Also, if there are alternative ways to download the GAP (I have heard of using MacPorts, and I am going to try that right away...), please let me know.

If you haven't already you need to install Xcode from your install dvd or get it from Apple Developer Connection
It's free but you do need to be a member (also free).
Don't forget to get the updates, if any.

So I installed the Xcode, which solves my C Compiler issues, but now I get an error when I ./configure in the gimp-gap folder. This is the error:

Quote:
<snipped>
checking for unistd.h... (cached) yes
checking for bind_textdomain_codeset... no
checking for pkg-config... no
checking for GIMP... configure: error: in `/Users/L4MB/desktop/gimp-gap-2.6.0':
configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it
is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full
path to pkg-config.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GIMP_CFLAGS
and GIMP_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

To get pkg-config, see <http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/>.
I have installed pkg_config, but I don't really understand what it is asking me to do with pkg_config. I understand that I can tell the compiler not to worry about the GIMP_CFLAGS and GIMP_LIBS, but, again, I don't know the context in which to change the parameters.
Thanks for the help so far!

where was pkg-config installed to? Is that location shown when you do echo $PATH ?

While I commend you for trying to compile this by hand, you may be tracking down dependencies all day, especially since The GIMP isn't "native" to OS X. Might I suggest using MacPorts to compile this? All you will then have to do is install MacPorts, open up a Terminal and run the following command:
Code:
sudo port install gimp-app gimp-gap
Once you execute this, input your password and The GIMP, along with the animation package, will be compiled for you and all dependencies will be taken care of. In other words, execute and wait. Here is a list of GIMP packages available through MacPorts.

Hi, I'm having a similar problem, and I was wondering if you could help me as well. I downloaded gap with macports the way that you said, and terminal told me that it had downloaded successfully. Whenever I check to see if it has been installed, it tells me that the program is active. But I can't find a way to open or start using it. When I open gimp, the video tab still does not appear. Any help?

I've spent the last several hours trying to download GAP onto my mac and I still haven't done it succesfully, so I come begging for help. I downloaded xtools and macports, which I used to download gap. Whenever I check in the terminal to see if gap has been installed, it tells me that the program is active and running. But I can't figure out how to start or use it. When I open gimp, the video tab still does not appear.

Can anyone help??

Merged threads - please don't crosspost.

I'm not familiar with GAP so I'm just guessing here. Are you using the MacPorts version of the GIMP or one of the binaries from the GIMP's website?

I assume that it's the binary, since I simply downloaded the version of the program that the site offered.

I'm willing to bet that the GAP built through MacPorts is designed to work with the version of GIMP that you get through MacPorts. Try using that one instead.
