Do you get any errors installing?

From your screenshot, it appears to have worked... The menus are changed a bit.

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

How do I get it to look like this?

Child windows in a parent window, just like in Windows.

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

Different OS, different interface. Are really child windows in a parent window so important?
UnrealX, I didn't understand your problem. What is not working?
