GIMP 2.8 vs. 2.6


Hi,

Slackware 14.0 is shipping with GIMP 2.8, which seems to work quite differently.

Anyone knows if there's a way to make GIMP 2.8 behave like 2.6 on startup, e. g. display the different toolboxes and all? I admit I'm a bit lost here.

Cheers,

Niki

Hi,

I've german menues, there in "Bearbeiten"->"Einstellungen"->"Werkzeugeinstellungen" there is a configuration "Werkzeugeinstellungen beim Beenden speichern". This should work, but I don't have the time now to try that out.

Click "Windows" on the toolbar, uncheck the single-window option.

The "Windows->Hide Docks" menu option is the one you want. Make sure it is not selected when you exit gimp and the dialogs will reappear when you reopen it.


Unfortunately this breaks my dwm tiling/floating rules for gimp (everything should float but the main window which is tiled)
Code:
/* class      instance    title       tags mask     isfloating   monitor */
  { "Gimp",     NULL,       NULL,       0,            True,        -1 },
  { "Gimp",     NULL,       "GNU Image Manipulation Program",       0,            False,        -1 },
Leaving the hide option turned on and everything works nicely (though I do have to open the dialogs I need manually on start-up)

I think the problem is that gimp initially opens all its windows using the same WM_NAME property on startup and then changes them after it assigns them to a specific job, which means the window manager can't correctly apply it's rules when it initially places the window. When you open a dialog manually it doesn't seem to do this and the dwm rules work.

There's always single-window mode I suppose, but I'm not sure I like that.


edit: Actually, thanks for prompting me to take another look at this. I believe I've just knocked together a patch for dwm that will make it work properly.

Thanks very much for the detailed answers.

@unspawn: I realize this post has indeed been posted to two different forums. I don't have the slightest idea what is going on here, since it is really not in my habits to make multiple posts. I can only swear on my Aretha Franklin Complete Works CD box that I only posted my message once. I'm puzzled.
