I am absolutely new to Linux, I have Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit, Intel Duo core cpu 2.4 GHz I downloaded and installed LAMP, Gimp and Blender although I have not touched Blender. I am trying to use Gimp to save images for the web. Adobe would allow a person to save the image's size but make the image smaller in relation to its MB or KB size. I found a "Save for Web plugin for Gimp and downloaded the 'tar' problem is I don't have a clue what to do with this. I searched on this forum and found ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1874280 I tried to use these instructions.
1. Unzip the .tar.gz in ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/
2. $ sudo apt-get install libgimp2.0-dev (if not installed packs for compile)
3. $ cd ~/.gimp-2.7/plug-ins/gimp-save-for-web-0.29.3/
4. $ ./configure
5 $ make
6. $ sudo make install
7. Restart Gimp
8. A new option is created at File>Save for web
No chance but the real problem is I don't even know what is going wrong all I recieve for a replay is
wyght@ubuntu:~$ $ sudo apt-get install libgimp2.0-dev
$: command not found
What is happening and how to I correct the problem. I 'think' part of the problem is I don't have the 'save to web.tar' file saved in the correct spot. It's on my desktop but I have not got a clue how to move it to where it should be nor do I know where it should be but I am betting in the gimp folder. But where is the gimp folder and how do I find it.
This is like being back in first grade and not having a clue LOL Sorry but I really don't have a clue. Can anyone help me figure this out? Thanks
