8bf-plugins working under Ubuntu? [Not supported, only in Windows]

Post by Grenzwelle »

Hi all,

first of all... thanks for programming and maintaining this wonderful software over all the years and especially for making it available for Linux users as well. I really appreciate it.

I've been using XnView intensively back in the days when i was working with Windows. Back then i had a whole lot of Photoshop plugins installed which where greatly enhancing the functionality of this wonderful software.

Right now i'm working with Ubuntu 18.04/20.04 and have XnViewMP 1.3 installed. My question now is:

- Is it possible to work with Photoshop/.8bf-plugins in Ubuntu as it is in Windows? Is anybody here working with .8bf-plugins on a Linux system willing to
share experiences?
- If that would be possible, where should the plugins be installed in the Linux filesystem? Any other things that should be considered to bring 8bf-plugins under Linux to work?

Thanks in advance for any kind of answer.

Have a nice day everyone.
