Gimp 2.0.1 any rpm


Tried to load GIMP 2.0 from the Linux Format discs, and the download from the gimp.org site.

Can't get it to work ./configure rejectss at the gdk even though I do have the version on Man10.amd64 rc1 which is supposed to work.

Can anyone load it on the i586 Man10 without problems? I have had a similar problem with Java j2re.1.5.0 beta which would not work on the amd64 -1.4.2 does work- where the 1.5.0 beta worked OK on another i586 man 10 machine.

No rpms that I could find yet. Did you build and install gimp-print first? Mine bailed out at the GDK detection when I didn't have gimp-print 4.2 built and installed first.

Barrys,

http://www.gimp.org/source/#optional_packages

I built Gimp 2.0 on a Mandrake 10.0 official system so I had some stuff that you may end up needing. This from the Gimp page:

Requirements

The GIMP runs on most Unix systems using X11 (the X Window System). If your system can run a graphical web browser, chances are that it can also run the GIMP. It runs even on relatively old PCs (Pentium 200) or on old workstations (Ultra1). The amount of memory can be an important factor, especially if you intend to work on large images. A minimum of 128 MB of RAM is recommended, but actually you should have 256 MB or more, and several GB does not hurt when you want to edit really large images. In addition to the basic X11 libraries, the following is a list of what you will need to run the GIMP on your system:

For the stable version (2.0.x):

A recent version of pkg-config is needed and you can grab them at http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig/
GTK+ 2.2.2 or newer (Gimp Toolkit). The GIMP toolkit can be found at ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gtk/
GTK+-2.2 depends also on recent versions of:
GLib
Pango
ATK and you can download them from ftp://ftp.gimp.org/

PangoFT2 a pango backend that uses FreeType2 (Make sure you have FreeType2 installed before installing Pango). Downloads can be found at http://www.freetype.org/
libart2 grab the module from libart_lgpl on the GNOME CVS or get the tarball at ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/libart_lgpl/
For the development version (2.1.x):

Thanks for your help.

Most of these ancillary programs I used in order to compile a new GTK=, -used /tmp/gtk as a directory- I tried following the gimp's website. I'll try again until something clicks in.

I'am using now 10 community and the i586 to get it to work. Also will us the same on the amd64 machine.

Can you tell me which directory you downloaded to and compiled from as I think I might have a path problem/

Barrys,

hmm, I just put it in a directory called "build" in my home directory. No problems. Just the gimp-print thing.

I have done most of this but gtk configure says library requirments glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.4.0 consider adjusting PKG_CONFIG_PATH so pkg-config can find them.

I have done all this in /home/user/build

Can you tell me where the PKG-CONFIG_PATH variable is and what I should put in it, sorry to be a pain

Barrys,

If you made all the alterations needed and it's not finding it, you may have to do a couple of things.

One is to ctrl-alt-F* to another terminal and log on as "root". then run ldconfig to insure the system knows of the changes in the lib status.

#ldconfig -v

exit and go back to ctrl-alt-F7

Another thing might be to update your profile in /etc/profile. I'm at work right now and on Winders, so I can't look for the name of the file, but there's a file in /etc that contains the lib paths that you may need to update if you've changed a bunch of lib versions (ATK, pango, and of course gtk).

The other thing you may need to do is get into the gimp 2.0 build directory and make the distribution clean and re-run configure.

make distclean

That's all I can think of at the moment. If none of this works, post back and I'll take a look when I get home and see if I can find the path file.

Stunters,

no still stuck what is that file name?

gimp-2.0.1 still does not compile in the build directory stops at checking for GTK + - version >= 2.2.2 no
so distclean says no rule to make target 'distclean'

A clue perhaps?
Even though I am unsuccesful in making a ./compile of gtk + - 2.4.2 I feel it is suffering the same path problem as compiling gimp-2.0.1
I cannot understand why it says the gtk version is less than 2.2.2 since the rpmdrake (uninstall) says that name gtk+2.0 is version 2.2.4-9mdk

Am I missing something here, should it have found my gtk is suposed to be 2.2.4?

Gimp2 is available in the contrib sources for urpmi,
Works nicely on my Mandrake 10 official system.

If you have an internet connection the urpmi is the best way to install rpms on your mandrake system. Have a look at the following websites
http://urpmi.org/easyurpmi/
http://plf.zarb.org/

Plf is a good site to pick up programs that mandrake won't include in the distro due to licencing etc. (dvd encryption libraries etc.)
The contribs are rpms that various parties have contributed for general use, and are not yet available in the official mandrake distribution.

I hope this helps

Barrys,

Hmm, unless it's an ldconf issue, I'm not sure. But ellyaht is right. Here, if you don't want to go the urpmi way:

http://rpms.mandrakeclub.com/rpms/ma...6/GByName.html

About half way down the page.

Not a member of Man club so can't get there version

Had a look in the urpmi base and the gimp is even older than the one I have.

It doesn't help with the problem either as I need to know why the GTK+ and the gimp2.0.1 will not compile?

I can't learn if I take the easy route and download rpms.

Can you let me know where the file in etc is and how that can be causing this problem as everyone must have the same problem.

I cannot understand why it cannot find that the GTK+ is greater than 2.2.2?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

barrys,

Well, you can look at /etc/ldconf to make sure the correct path is there. It's just a text file, so you can look at it in a text editor. Flip to another terminal and log in as root the type:

ldconfig -v

This should register all libs. If it still can't find the correct version, then you need to alter the pkg-config stuff to point to the correct version install of GTK. Depending on how pkg-config was installed on your system, this could be in /usr/libs, /usr/local/libs or /usr/X11R6/libs. Possibly elsewhere if you built it yourself or used an oddball rpm file.

Another thing to note is the config.cache file that is built by configure. It will be there in the build directory. Make sure it isn't continuing to show a less than 2.2 version. If so, delete it (or if you're paranoid like me, rename it) and let configure re-write it.

I have 10.0 official installed at home. I'll take a look and see if I can find where mine is. That might help. I'm no expert, but have played with this a bit.
