So after adding the freetype2 lib,and others, i finally managed to get gimp to compile and link.
But now there's a huge problem - it messes up my X server. I start it up, the new installation dialog comes up with [continue] [cancel] at the bottom... and it has screwed up my mouse. The mouse does not respond properly any more, even after I cancel out of the dialog using the keyboard. Note that this is on a *vanilla* solaris 8 system, not one with my xinput drivers. So this is a definate solaris compatibility problem, vs a tweaked system problem. I'd be happy to help work through the problem, and submit patches, etc. But I need a better idea of what to look at. I have no idea what the heck could be messing up the mouse like that. _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
