Save as batch-unsharp.scm in your gimp script folder (could be ~/.gimp-2.8/scripts)
Run with
gimp -i -b '(batch-unsharp-mask "*.tif" 5.0 0.5 0)' -b '(gimp-quit 0)'

See for more explanation

Running with this command I got an unbound variable error message. Changing the "batch-auto-fix" in the first line of the script to "batch-unsharp-mask" solved it.

Gimp is trying to look for files named 5.0 0.5 and 0 when I run this command. I'm using GIMP 2.8

Is there a fix for this issue?

EDIT: figured it out. if on windows you will use double quotes everywhere, " instead of " and \ instead of \ so that the escape characters make sense.

"C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.10\bin\gimp-console-2.10.exe" -b "(process-fingerprint "C:\Users\paynekj\Pictures\tmp\output1.jpg")" -b "(gimp-quit 0)"

Hit an error.
Hope this helps

gimp -i -b '(batch-auto-fix "*.jpg" 5.0 0.5 0)' -b '(gimp-quit 0)'

Plug-in "dbp"
(/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/dbp) is installing procedure "extension-dbp" with a full menu path "/Xtns/Batch Process..." as menu label, this deprecated and will be an error in GIMP 3.0
batch command experienced an execution error:
Error: eval: unbound variable: batch-auto-fix

Did you copy the script batch-auto-fix to the scripts folder in your installation of GIMP? Then you can run it by first navigating to the folder containing the script in command prompt, adding the gimp executable to your system PATH variable and then specifying the full directory path to your images in your command.

Run with
gimp -i -b '(batch-auto-fix "*.jpg" 5.0 0.5 0)' -b '(gimp-quit 0)'

and under Windows you have to change it to
gimp -i -b "(batch-auto-fix """*.jpg""" 5.0 0.5 0)" -b "(gimp-quit 0)"
