well, your problems are actually due to the way the distribution has
built and installed your gimp.
if you show them the same errors you showed us here, they should
understand the problems. i don't make distributions and am a simple
linux user and i can understand them....
if they would like my help as a professional, i guess that one of the
ways to take these half steps between windows and linux is to offer
professional help and to assure professional help by charging a fee for
tell them i will be happy to help and they can email me directly with
the terms of the professional help.
this is one of the nice things about using a distribution. you have
people who can fix the problems or you should have the option to build
it yourself if it does not fill your needs or work as promised.
