Hallo! I want to use Gimp as the default application to open a xcf-file from KDE. I would like to use some script like: use Gimp; Gimp::init; Gimp->file_load(("$ARGV")x2)->display_new; I have two remaining questions. 1) If there is no running instance of gimp I could of course start one, but how do I check for a running perl-server and how can I start it? 2) When I start the perl-server manually and use the script above, the image seems to be changed. ("Changes were made to xxx.xcf. Close anyway?") Why does this happen and how can I avoid this? Thanks a lot.
