Hello everybody, I'm a developer and I'm interested in contributing to GIMP. Developing software is my full-time job, mainly programming enterprise Java software.
To get started with GIMP, I downloaded the source for version 2.4.1 and I'm trying to compile it on my Ubuntu 7.10 (32-bit) machine. I installed a bunch of libraries that are mentioned in the file INSTALL and ran ./configure, which seemed to go without errors. However, when I ran make, it would stop soon with a confusing error message. After looking through configure.log I noticed that it was looking for libcurl development files, which were not on my system. So I downloaded and installed libcurl (+ dev headers) and now it's busy compiling. Is libcurl indeed required to compile GIMP? If so, can you please add a note to INSTALL that says you also need libcurl? Thanks, I'm looking forward to contributing to GIMP. Jesper de Jong
