I specifically need GIMP Save for Web plugin. In Ubuntu it was right there in the software center, included in a package called gimp-plugins. I couldn't find it in Fedora, even though I have RPMfusion repos enabled.

sorry this package is not available in fedora :

you can find here :

Double-Click on Archive and Extract into /tmp and then Login as SuperUser


Install Packages and prepare your system for compiling :

yum install gimp-devel intltool gcc gcc-c++

Configure, Compile and Install Gimp save-for-web

cd /tmp/gimp-save-for-web-0.29.3


make && make install && make clean

Restart Gimp to Load the save-for-web Plugin

@Bucic if you would like gimp-plugins package in fedora you must contact with Fedora Packaging who are in charge of Packaging programs for distribution through yum..

Both solutions will work, but downloading the tarball from and installing it as outlined by @hhlp will give you the more recent version of the two;]

I'm afraid it wasn't such a perfect solution for me. I tried it and this was the result:

root>8*14!# yum localinstall
Loaded plugins: langpacks
Cannot open: Skipping.

Nothing to do

@sergiomb a old package, but It works with Gimp 2.8.14; reading in AUR Arch Linux. Do you need it? I can repack it correctly with F21 and f22 :)
