I only just noticed this comment at the top of your reply.
The problem is that my distro , Gentoo, has a dependancy block on
gimp-print>4.2.7 with gimp-2.2
Now from what you say this may be an error or a misunderstanding of old
issues. I recall quite some time ago I put in a bug report at
bugs.gentoo.org and got this was an "upstream" issue and the block would
remain until that was resolved.
If you can help me fix this issue , which may be infact a non-issue, you
may help clear this up for all Gentoo users as well.
It seems the crux of the issue is version checking done by gimp
According to configure.in:
Therefore, if you use >=4.2.*, gimp maintainers don't support it.
The ebuilds will stay how they are until the maintainers say that its okay
to use a later ( probably non-beta ) version of gimp-print.
Thanks for reporting!
Is the conclusion from this that the src tarball for gimp 2.2.x needs
these checks to be changed because gimp-print-5.x does now work with it?
