    Cool HOWTO:Add WebP (weppy) support to GIMP.

    Hi
    There's an old locked thread about adding WebP support to GIMP.
    Here ---> http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...highlight=webp

    That PPA hasn't been updated for ages, but the 12.04 Precise version seems to work OK with 14.04 Trusty.

    I've created a deb file from the old PPA.
    It's in the attachment below.
    Download and untar it first.

    Install libwebp
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y install libwebp-dev
    Install the deb
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i gimp-webp_0.2-1.deb
    Then with GIMP it will be possible to import and export webp files.


    This works OK for me with 32 bit system.
    I don't have access to a 64 bit system, but maybe somebody else can test it and leave feedback.

    For me it isn't working on a 64 bit system.

    Hi
    I've attached the original 64-bit deb from the launchpad page.

    Sorry to raise the dead on this post, but the 64 bit package worked for me in 14.10

    Thanks!

    Hey everyone. Sorry for the long delay in getting up-to-date packages into the PPA. I uploaded builds for Trusty, Utopic, Vivid, and Wily, which you can add to your system with:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:george-edison55/webp
    Once added, simply install the "gimp-webp" package and you will be able to use the plugin. I've also switched to CMake and moved the plug-in over to GitHub with the intention of adding some new features in the future and maybe adjusting the interface a bit.

    I've imported your PPA. Trying to execute
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install gimp-webp
    and got message:
    Code:
    gimp-webp package not found
