I'm trying to use the Gimp 1.04 that came with RH 6.1 Linux. First off, I'm getting the message "script-fu not available: batch mode disabled" at startup. I've looked through the FAQ's and have figured out more or less what script-fu is, but not why I'm getting this error message. What do I need to do to get this message to go away. Second, I'm trying to open bitmap files and am getting the following message: "Open filed mybmp.bmp" Electric Eyes is able to open these bitmaps okay. I believe that they are saved in the number of color just greater than 256 (16k?), they are screenshots from MS-Windows that I'd like to convert to .jpg's. I downloaded the bmp plugin. I then did a make, and a make install. Apparently, there isn't an install section in the makefile, there isn't a README either. At any rate, it appears to make a bmp executable file. Where should I put this file? I get a similar message when I try to open .jpg files. I can't find a plugin for .jpg files though.
