Hi! Ok, I just installed Gimp 2.0rc1 on Linux. The build went smoothly and I noticed the executable was installed as "gimp" instead of "gimp-1.3". I accidentally clobbered my Gimp 1.2.5 installation but I can build that again. :)

you should not need to rebuild that. it will be named gimp-1.2 and you
might need to include the path to start it. "gimp" is a symbolic link
and you can rm it and if you prefer that gimp-1.2 be the default gimp
then type "ln -s gimp-1.2 gimp" in that directory (probably
/usr/local/bin if you built it yourself).

Great! I can run gimp-1.2.. That will work just fine. :)

Anywho, I was wondering if/when the "Add Glow" and the "Perl-o-Tine" filters would be available, if ever, in Gimp 2.0? I've been using the 1.3 releases for a while primarily and 1.2.5 for things I needed, like "Perl-o-Tine" and "Add Glow". I noticed "Py-slice" works similarly to "Perl-o-tine" but Py-slice doesn't support RGB images. :(

py-slice works on RGB images. it is not as complete as perlotine but it
does most of the same things. i had problems when there were guides
left after a crop. well, guides left on the new edges. at 0px -- you
can see them if they are there. i am just guessing why the plugin did
not work for you.

I know what I did wrong. I tried to "slice" a JPEG as a test and left the default image type as "GIF" in the Py-slice filter. I was able to get Py-slice to work as I needed it to. :)

gimp-perl is working and hopefully they will tell how to install it.
right now it is available via cvs checkout and needs a list of extra
perl things -- a list i lost track of.

enjoy the new gimp.

So far, I really like it. :D

i miss photo mosaic myself.

Xsane support and the "Add Glow" fliter is what I'm currently missing but can wait for since 1.2.5 still works for me. :)

I *really* like the new text tool as it's able to handle the 1000+ Windows TrueType fonts I've got installed. :)

Thanks for the help!
