Dear GIMP fundi’s,
I got the Gimp 2.8.2 [my third evolution] and I must say is awesome. Good to
see skills and hard work strutted in public without the traditional teething
troubles manifesting themselves. Well done!
A bit difficult for a non-IT specialist to install ’cos the GIMP set-up and
the “help” section didn’t want to meld. I rather suspect that using the file
“run” facility instead of the “save” would’ve avoided the issue but I need
to backup the original in case of future problems elsewhere.
Initially the uninstall app never cleared the system of Gimp 2.6.12 and so
the new installation picked up some bad habits from the get-go but I then
purged my [Check Disk, Ccleaner, MRT etc.] XPsp3 of all traces of the old
and re-installed the new. Then I hadda hunt around to enable my “help” and
“context help” to link with the help/F1 icons. But now all’s well! Thank you
Just one gripe though! Can we disable or lose the decimal/fraction brush
slide sizing facility. Whole numbers in this context would be perfect. To
fiddle with fractions offering a 100th of a step at a time is really tedious
and, imho, unnecessary. Is there some file somewhere where I could gently
disable this feature? And how? Tia!
Here’s to the next ten years and, again, many thanks for all of youse’s
