Try to call flatten on the resulting image before saving ($image->flatten). If that doesn't help, then add a sleep 3 or so after the call to script-fu and keep your fingers crossed. If that doesn't help either you might look at scm2perl and convert the scheme plug-in to perl (followed by a lot of small adjustments, as script-fu scripts are often rather unclean, due to the lakc of type-safeness of the language). > ok but io want to create logos using existing script-fu logo script? > it's possible ???? With a lot of hacks, it's usually possible. But it often depends on the particular script. It also sometimes helps to open a new image+drawable before calling script-fu, as some scripts seem to have problems with image or drawable ids of zero. Equally often it helps to not have any windows open, as some scripts only work _if_ they open the very first image and/or drawable. Most of these _should_ problems be fixed in 1.2.3, but some probably were overlooked, and debugging these scripts is no fun. > I want to do serious scripting work with gimp, similar to cool text.com, > can you help me to decide in what direction i should go ? Maybe ask whoever does cooltext.com, they certainly had either similar problems or do it difefrently (e.g. with the script-fu server, however, don'T use it unless you have properly firewalled it). > I have not obtained deterministic results till now. That's, indeed, what most people find out quickly when they get in contact with script-fu. > Script-fu, perl-fu , interactions between them, outdated documentations ??? I am sorry, you must be fairly confused by now ;) Actually, it's because script-fu doesn't really behave like any other gimp plug-in. The fact that nobody regularly calls script-fu in normal work (there are few, if any, generic script-fu scripts, so there is rarely need to call them from other plug-ins) obviously made script-fu very low priority over the years. The only people who do call script-fu from a plug-in are mostly people who write logo-generators (like you do), and they often use perl. -- -----==- | ----==-- _ | ---==---(_)__ __ ____ __ Marc Lehmann +-- --==---/ / _ \/ // /\ \/ / [EMAIL PROTECTED] |e| -=====/_/_//_/\_,_/ /_/\_\ XX11-RIPE --+ The choice of a GNU generation | | _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
