I didn't second to disable installation of _all_ scripts. I just aggreed that 
scripts that are not working due to unfulfilled dependencies should not be
installed. IMHO the lack of Perl-GTK is such a reason.

If this is the current situation, then I did not knew this. I must admit
that in the last months I haven't tried to install gimp on systems that do 
have all the necessary parts installed. If I did, I disabled Perl on 
My experiences are probably not reflecting the current situation. Please 

Salut, Sven
