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

    There's an old locked thread about adding WebP support to GIMP.
    Here --->

    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
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y install libwebp-dev
    Install the deb
    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.
