Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have tried everything, recompiled gtk+, removepkg gimp, compiled gimpshop from source, installed from .tgz but still nothing, all i get is this:
excuse me for chasing you from the atiixp thread, but it seams that by this picture, everything is up and running, and working fine. Try right clicking on the pic in gimp, most of the options are there
On the windows install there's an option in the installer to install this parent window. Fwiw, it's sucks really hard ... the child windows can actually disappear behind the parent, and when you close it, the parent locks and stays until explicitly killed from task manager.
Honestly, you gain so little by using GIMPshop in full "photoshop mode" that I would just learn to live with it, or recode it yourself. I worked with Photoshop for many years, and although things are in a different place in GIMP, it does the trick for what i'm doing these days. The thing i miss the most is the fact there are no GIMP "Layer Styles" like in the newer Photoshop ... they made my life so easy when designing site graphics =)
You may want to check out cedega - you'll find Photoshop work under that.
To summerise your choices:
* Learn GIMP
* Recode GIMP
* Use Cedega to run Photoshop
Im going to learn the Gimp. I already did some web graphics and I like that program very much . Im using vmware in linux for testing other distros and I also have windows as a virtual machine. Tho i dont like it.
