I downloaded the HELP package from
http://mirror.umd.edu/gimp/gimp/help/windows/2.8/2.8.1/ and installed it. When I
try to use it in GIMP I still get the message that I don't have HELP installed.
The language of the help package has to match the user interface
language (set under Edit > Preferences > Interface > Language). I had
that problem a while back; in my case, I'd installed the UK English
(en_GB) help, but the interface was set to the default US English
(en_US), so didn't detect the help package.
OS: Windows 7 home premium - service pack 1 - 2009
Can't access gimp.org today - anyone else having problems?
Not working for me either. Not even responding to ping, so looks like
the server's down. Or blocked by my ISP (now Sky - Be having been bought
out by them); a quick search it looks like they blocked gimp.org a while
