Install Gimp 2.4 in Slackware 12


Slackware 12 comes with Gimp 2.2 (old version). So i want to upgrade it to 2.4

I downloaded 2.4 for Slackware from Gimp site. Remove Gimp 2.0 from Slackware (use command pkgtool). Then install Gimp 2.4

But after this, i still see the folder 2.0 of Gimp in the /usr, dont have 2.4 folder.

And run Gimp 2.4, everything work well as i use Gimp 2.4 in Windows.

But here is the measage when run Gimp from terminal (error measage, but Gimp work well )
Code:
root@darkstar:~# gimp-2.4

(gimp-2.4:3459): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp-2.4: gimp_wire_read(): error
So, why terminal show these measage while Gimp 2.4 work well. And why the folder 2.0 still in /usr after i remove Gimp 2.2 ?

It looks like that version was built on a machine that has PyGTK installed (probably from one of the third party GNOME builds) which Slackware does not presently include itself.

Using it should be fine, as long as you don't need the functionality that depends on it. A better alternative might be to use the Gimp packages from Slackware -current, which is at 2.4.2 and should work fine on Slackware 12 (though I have not personally tried).
