Hello everyone. My name is Joey and I'm new to the GIMP-user e-mail list,
but have been using GIMP for quite a while.
I am a freelance web site designer and graphic designer, and a student at
the School of Communication Arts in Raleigh, NC, USA. I'm one of the few
Linux users there. A lot of people tell me I should be on a mac, but
there's things I like about Linux. I like Macs as well.
I have just started getting involved in Grafpup Linux, a distribution
built on Puppy Linux.
I'm not really a programmer (unless we talk PHP and soon, Flash),
otherwise I would have probably worked on these problems myself in Grafpup.
Like Puppy Linux, Grafpup is designed to be small, yet useful to graphic
designers and imagine professionals. It's a minimalist distribution in
many ways, much like Puppy. I run the LiveCD version, which installs a
file called pup101 on the hard drive, which is actually a Linux filesystem
within a file. Hard drive installs and USB flash drive installs are also
possible. Grafpup does contain GIMP, however, we're having some problems
with GIMP and Python issues in the Puppy Linux family, from what I've
Nathan Fisher, the person who started Grafpup Linux, is working hard on
resolving these issues. You can find out more details at
http://www.grafpup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=39 . Basically, I'm wanting
to run the perl-o-tine script. I've tried the web-o-tine script, but this
does not work for me.
I don't know if the GIMP developers read e-mails on this list or not. If
anyone is interested in helping us getting things to work, yet still
remain as small as possible, it would be much appreciated.
For info on the Grafpup distro, check out http://www.grafpup.com . It's a
distro that I'd really like to see become successful. It may mean having
to loose some of it's minimalist roots, I don't know.
Anyway I thought I'd come here for some GIMP help and to see if anyone is
interested in helping getting GIMP to work better in Grafpup. GIMP by
itself is working great. It's just these plugins we're having problems
