The source code of G'MIC is shared between several git repositories with public access. Accessing it via git ensures you get the latest code available, and will ease the source updates as well. Here are the instructions to compile G'MIC on a fresh installation of Debian (or Ubuntu). It should not be much harder for other distros. First you need to install all the required tools and libraries:
- Download GIMP free and start using this image manipulation software on any platform you use: will it be Mac OS, Windows or Linux. GIMP is called the best free alternative to Adobe Photoshop, and you have probably heard about GIMP vs Photoshop competition. This photo editing software has an open source, which makes it completely free.
- Download Gimp for Mac full version program setup free. Gimp is an open-source image manipulation application that offers a bundle of editing tools from basic to advanced level photo editing. Gimp 2 Review Gimp.
Then, get the G'MIC source from the different repositories:
Download GIMP for free and use professional editing tools for retouching, enhancing, and creating images. The open-source software is 100% safe and free.
$ git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/dtschump/CImg.git
$ git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/dtschump/gmic.git
$ git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/c-koi/gmic-qt.git
$ git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/c-koi/zart.git
You are now ready to compile all G'MIC interfaces:
- gmic (command-line tool),
- gmic_gimp_qt (plug-in for GIMP),
- gmic_krita_qt (plug-in for Krita),
- ZArt and
- libgmic (G'MIC C++ library).
Just pick your choice:
$ cd gmic/src
$ make cli # Compile command-line interface
$ make gimp # Compile plug-in for GIMP
$ make krita # Compile plug-in for Krita
$ make lib # Compile G'MIC library files
$ make zart # Compile ZArt
$ make all # Compile all of the G'MIC interfaces
and go out for a long drink (the compilation takes time).
Note that compiling issues (compiler segfault) may happen with older versions of g++ (4.8.1 and 4.8.2). If you encounter this kind of errors, you probably have to disable the support of OpenMP in G'MIC to make it work, by compiling it with:

Also, please remember that the source code in the git repository is constantly under development and may be a bit unstable, so do not hesitate to report bugs if you encounter any.
