having troubling with make and make install of the fourier transform
plug-in for gimp

supposed to do forward and reverse

the make error I get is make: Nothing to be done for `all'.

if I (make install) after the make error, there is no error and it
creates a binary, but the filers don't show up under filters/generic
like the website above says

the binary is call fourier, if I try to run it I get the error bash:
./fourier: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

there is something other things called --install-bin and gimptool-2.0,
but if I try to execute them, there are errors

do I have to move the binary somewhere?

I think I have all the libraries, there are no errors that libraries
are needed

I am using this version of Ubuntu Linux Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS Release: 14.04 Codename:


and GIMP 2.8.10

I'll be googling around in the mean time...

FWIW you should be able to accomplish that with the ImageMagick -
convert command - there is an option for fft and one for ift (inverse

thanks, I'll have to learn ImageMagick

Just install it and do 'man convert' - describes fft and ift and, I
think, gives an example.
