the plugin is a python script which you have to install in the Gimp plugin folder. Are you sure you are talking about the plugin and not the stand-alone program? Unfortunately I cannot help you with the stand alone program, because I do not use windows.

The plugin is based on the Nvidia Normalmap plugin, so make sure that you have it installed...


it comes with gimp-plugin-registry package.

Hello guys, the script works OK with me at Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Gimp 2.8 latest.... What seems to be the problem with you?

That's the problem really, although to be completely safe I'd use a regex that captures the last dot of the filename and adds the suffix before it or at the end of the filename in case there is no dot (god forbid). Still, it would not work in an unsaved picture, in which case it should print a relevant message

Well they are allowed but you can save your self from such problems like the ones you have if you don't use characters like dots and spaces or anyt other strange characters. For example I only use latin characters and underscores in any path. I ve had tons of problems with compilers and other programs and I have been banging my head on the wall for days and finally the problem was the spaces or foreign characters in the path or filename.

As we discussed above, the renaming method is buggy, but dots in the path are bad anyway, (well that's no excuse, is it?).

Anyway, unfortunately I don't have much time to debug the script right now. I think someone has posted a modified version above, maybe it is what you seek.

My guess is that there is sth wrong with your filename. Try saving the image you are working on somewhere, and avoid strange characters in the file name. Then, open the picture with gimp and try the script again. Tell me if it works.

In the python documentation it says that ntpath is the same as os.path (just an observation).


Apparently this still is not a good solution in case you have dots (.) in the filename...

something like the following may be better:

(root, ext)=os.path.splitext(filename)


return filename

I am sorry, I cannot help with this as I am running gimp on linux, but my guess is uninstall then reinstall the latest versions for the registry and the gimp software

From the output I am guessing that you don't have the normal map plug in that can be found in the plug in registry. Try installing the Gimp Plugin Registry.
