For all systems, you should already have The GIMP installed on your computer. It seems that the plugin doesn't work with Gimp version 2.3, reports welcome. You can get The GIMP here for Windows, here for Mac OS X and here for Unix/Linux.


After downloading the Windows version of the plugin, just unzip the file and put it into your GIMP plugins directory. The plugins directory should be located at C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.2\lib\gimp\2.0\plugins (replace the beginning of this path by wherever you installed the GIMP program).

Then quit The GIMP if it was open, and launch it again to let it load the new plugin.


Debian package

If you're using Debian or (K,X)ubuntu, just install the package gimp-texturize, with a package manager like synaptic or with the command line:
sudo apt-get install gimp-texturize .

Thanks to Dennis Lichtenthäler, there is an ebuild for Gentoo Linux and its package management system, Portage. Here is a howto about Installing 3rd party ebuilds.

From source

If the configure script tells you that it needs libraries that are not yet installed (the GIMP development environment for instance), install them first with your usual package manager then run ./configure again.
