OK, I was just about to install the GIMP's normalmap plug-in which can be found here: normalmap | GIMP Plugin Registry

so run a 'make' on the makefile.linux in it's directory, it says "nothing to be done."

so I run 'make install' on the same directory and it goes though and ignores the gimp normal map plug-in, and tries to install annother application I had tried but failed to install earlier, 'libdvdcss-1.2.9'

and I'm like wait....., this has nothing to do with lidvdcss, so why is it refusing to make the gimp plug-in and focusing on lidvdcss?
