FYI - I have written up some instructions on how to get the gimp to run again
in Hardy Heron when gimpshop is also installed.
If your are having problems getting the Gimp to run in other distros where
gimpshop is installed, give these instructions a try. They should work but you
might need to make slight modifications depending on the distro.
You should be able to easily modify these instructions to get multiple versions
of the gimp to run on the same PC. (e.g. the version of gimp that came with
your distro and a more recent version of the gimp).
If you like crossword puzzles, then you'll love Flexicon, a game which combines
four overlapping crossword puzzles into one!
