Do you speak about Gimp in german language? Where can I get it?
I use Gimp 1.1.13 and it seems that add, substract and intersect
selections doesn't work properly. I've tried it as usual:
- switch to selection mode and make a selection
- press Shift and make another selection

i know perfectly how the selection add/substract works, but like

two friends of mine are running the same version on nearly the

selection-tool works properly in fvwm and fvwm2, but nowhere else

works fine, only the selection tool won't.
Ta has to do with a focus. Make sure

I deleted gimp 1.1.11 and downloaded gimp 1.1.15. When I tried to configure, it
said, that it couldn't find gtk. Although the same version (1.2.6) is needed, I
deleted also gtk, downloaded a new one from the gtk-homepage and tried to

I oncemore deleated everything that belongs to gimp, gtk and glib.
I freshly unpacked everything and reinstalled it.
This time the installation of glib and gtk was OK.
The gimp is configurated and I did "make" and "make install".
The last one failed.

For truetype fonts you need to install the extra truetype font server 'xfstt'.

You extract the new source over the older ones? You gave some of the
output of the make, this
indicates some of the source is not being remade. Try using 'make
clean' before using 'make',
this might sort things out.
I did run 'make clean' - no difference at all.
Somethng else to do?

I still changed it a little. With the first one I had to restart Gimp to
