Hi,

I would really like to have the new graphic tablet functionality of the GIMP 2.8. I have it running with some tricks on my laptop (fd64,too), but on my desktop machine it's either gimp 2.8 works (well, starts, at least) and everything else is borked, or gimp 2.8 doesn't even start. Both comps are running fd64, both with ati graphicsdriver, the laptop with an intel core2 duo, the desktop with an AMD X2, pretty much the same software. I actually know, that the 'bad' library is libgdk-pixbuf, where the newer version obviously crashes ROX-Filer. But on the desktop machine there are more issues, error message is in the line of 'undefined symbol'.

So if someone can put together a gimp 2.8 that is not as picky, it would be much appreciated.

Hi chiron,

This is an sfs for gimp-2.8.2, and updated libraries.

This packages includes;
atk-2.4.0
babl-0.1.10
cairo-1.12.2
gdk-pixbuff-2.26.1
gegl-0.2.0
gimp-2.8.2
glib-2-32-2
libcroco-0.6.5
librsvg-2.36.1
libwmf-0.2.8.4
pango-1.3.0

If you are using lxpanel-0.5.9, it has a problem with refreshing the desktop menu for some sfs files.
If that is the case delete the file in ~/.cache/menus and restart Xserver. The desktop icon works as it should without doing that.

Updated to install to /opt.

Thanks, will try it today. From the list it appears it has the same libraries I tried, but as I said, runs on the laptop, fails on the desktop, so maybe I missed one tiny bit Wink

OK, so I copied the *.sfs to the desktop and loaded it with the sfs-loader. Gimp worked! Upon restarting the x, all Icons and the backdrop image were gone, and rox-filer is not much use without icons.

I then copied the directories out of the sfs to /opt/gimp28 and wrote a small script:

Code:
#! /bin/sh

export PATH=/opt/gimp28/usr/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gimp28/usr/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

exec gimp


And now it works flawless.

T H A N K S again! Wink

Glad you got it working. Sorry it wasn't automagic.
I remember having the same problem with gdk-pixbuf once.
After some research, found running the following command restored the icons.
Code:
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache

I think this sfs needs some more polishing so one would not need to do that.

I did that --update-cache thing, got it working on the laptop, failed on the desktop. But on the laptop, I also have libgdk-pixbuf in a separate directory and do the export LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Not showing icons in Rox-filer is the 'mild form' of crashing rox.

Maybe one could include the small script into the sfs, and choose the directory structure inside the sfs so that it would not conflict with existing libs? Should be possible, but i am not an sfs-hero Wink

On a sidenote, the hanvon tablet works great with 2.8.2, it appears the issues with tablets were only wacom specific.

Sorry if this is a naive question, but would that work with lucid?

Ah, just saw the '64' on the package.. I guess it won't work with lucid..

I haven't seen gimp 2.8 around for lucid and I was really hoping that
I could get it. Is this sfs really we should expect sooner or later, you
think?
