Gimp Deskew Plugin Compiled for Ubuntu 64 bit

Below is a pre-compiled version of the deskew plugin for Gimp 2.8, which is a dependency for the widely used DivideScannedImages script.

I couldn’t find a working Linux version of it to download, so I compiled it myself instead. It was compiled on 64 bit Ubuntu 12.10 but I would expect it to work on other similar Ubuntu/Debian versions. It may also work on other versions of the Gimp, but I haven’t tried it.

Download the deskew plugin file and drop it into  /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins

Then run these command to get the permissions right.

You should now see Deskew as an option under Layer -> Transform -> Deskew
