PostPosted: Thu 21 Mar 2013, 20:37    Post subject:  Gimp 2.8.4 for Precise or Slacko or Raring  

This version of Gimp will run only on Precise puppy linux,
PreciseNOP or Slacko or Raring.

It won't work on distributions like Wheezy or Wary.

I recompiled to make the foreign locales work. You must install the
NLS package of course to show a foreign language menu!!

I don't know the benefits of this version, but
it's stable and will export to many image formats.

You can choose either an SFS or a PET file to install.
Don't install both!
edit: pet version - fixed Laughing

gimp-precise-2.8.4.sfs (11.2 MB)

gimp-precise-2.8.4.pet (11.4 MB)

gimp_NLS-2.8.4.pet (only needed for foreign languages)

.

I recompiled and built the packages again.
I was able to get the menus to show foreign
language text if NLS package installed.

Note: I compiled with python disabled
since it's not installed in standard installations.
Apparently some effects need python, but
I haven't noticed any problems.

I stripped the apps but they're still quite big.

oops. I didn't test the pinstall.sh script in pet

I would have realized it was wrong.

I fixed the pet package by getting rid of pinstall.sh script Laughing


I noticed that earlier gimp2.8.2 package in Barry's precise repository can run
in Pemasu's Wheezy distribution but wheezy can't use this
gimp 2.8.4 package.

okay I tried the sfs file on precise puppy 5.4.3
this is what iI get:
Quote:
libgegl-0.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


is libgegl not included?
libabl also and other stuff.
Can you tell me wher did you get the right one libraries. Last time I installed it my system broke down? Is it runing okay in your precise nop 5.4.3?

I got libbabl and libgegl from launchpad.com site as debian packages for
precise. I didn't bother to compile. It didn't seem to matter.

I loaded sfs into RAM using sfs_load by shinobar.
I should test using the regular method of loading.

I finally discovered what was causing problem with sfs file.

launchpad.net stores libgegl and libbabl libraries in
/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

Fixed and tested on raring distro.

I compiled Gimp in Wheezy by Pemasu
(python disabled)
and I discovered to my surprise that the app
will also run in Precise, Raring, or Slacko as well!!

The size of package is bigger!! 18M rather than 11M
I tested on four distros and they worked very well.

gimp-precise-2.8.4.pet


gimp_NLS-2.8.4.pet
(only needed for foreign languages)

EDIT: removed SFS since it didn't work in Wheezy
