wait a minute ... can you describe in a more sensible way the steps
required to make that ?
Im using TheGimp 2.2.7 on Gnu/linux and the button I have is called:
"Create path from text", however when i press that button nothing
That is the text doesn't follow the path i made before.

Im doing this:

1) New image 400x400 white bg
2) Create Path - round mountain shaped
3) Enter some text
4) choose "Create path from text" from the text tools
At this point I have:
a) a white background layer + a text layer
   b) 2 paths - 1) the text I wrote
                         2) The path I.ve drew
5) change "Path to selection" ( the path I drew?)
6) ?!? 

If you have the time and patience to explain it - thanks, otherwise
ill keep trying.
