I think I may have posted this question into the wrong thread. Hoping someone
can help me. I have become quite fond of GIMP and use it to make posters,
images and colouring pages for my classroom. I recently was given a new HP
Probook 4530s with Intel Core i5 processor and it is running Windows 7. I
tried to download and install Gimp 2.6 but when I start up I get an error
saying: The procedure entry point libintl_setlocale could not be located in
the dynamic link library intl.dll.
On the Gimp FAQ - it says that this is a fault connected to HP machines and
that a broken app placed the file in the system32 directory. It also says that
I should rename the file and it should work.
I am not quite computer savvy - so I would like someone in the know to help me
1. What should I rename the file to? And should I move the file from the
system 32 folder to like some Gimp folder?
2. Some other HP user said that renaming the file interefered with some Logon
User Interface - I am not going to pretend like I even understand what this
means - but it reads as if merely renaming the file caused something else to
Like I said earlier - I am very naive when it comes to computers and how they
work so may I please ask someone who has successfully resolved the problem to
talk me through step-by-step (I mean like seriously treat me as if I am someone
who has just learned to turn a PC on) on how to fix this problem.
I sont even know what to rename the offending system 32 file. Is that intl.dll
file the system32 file for windows - or does it contain all the files for Gimp
including legitimate Windows files. Uuuurgh - so confusing.
As far as I can see when I start up Gimp - all the plug-ins and things like
web-browser.exe files cannot be found. I dont know what registry items and all
that in-the-know pc speak is all about. I really need my hand held on this.
Can anyone help out a naive schoolteacher in Africa with this? Anyone? Sorry
if I posted this twice by accident (told ya - dumb pc user I am!)
