  2.10 start up, two warnings...
Posted by: Lady Awinita - Yesterday, 10:03 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (1)

OK so, I start up GIMP 2.10 I like it, nice dark theme {perfect for pohot editing!!}

However, I get two notices that pop up when the program starts up; the first one is for my old version of G'MIC {which then was updated, but this error still shows up} saying the entry point wasnt found in the dll not4ed as "libwinpthread-1.dll"

The second error is for dds.exe extension I had downloaded for GIMp to edit some Skyrim mod coloration files to fit the character mood properly, This note is for the following dll "libstdc++-6.dll"

Is there a fix for either of these ?

By clicking on OK I cant still start up GIMP without anymore notices popping up. I can use the new brushes and tools just fine, its only those two errors that keep showing up when I start up the program.

Without either entry point located I cannot use open any DDS file, but I can somehow use the latest update to G'MIC just fine

  DPI problem
Posted by: Wasew - Yesterday, 12:13 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello,

To publicate in an article, I need to enhance a Figure DPI to, at least, 1200 DPI.

I have an image that I got from another article and wanted to use in mine to substantiate the text, but, in the original article, the image is smaller than the size I need to use. When I try to resize it, the quality gets worse and the DPI is way below 1200. 

I saw posts saying that using GIMP I could solve this problem by going to the Image Scale tool and changing the X and Y resolutions. After doing it and changing to 1500, I tried to export the image as pdf (what turned to png in the end), but, looking in the properties, it showed 504x370 instead.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

  Gimp 2.8 doesn't see wacoom bamboo
Posted by: NullPointer - 05-22-2018, 01:29 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I just bought wacoom bamboo. I installed drivers and tablet is seen and works fine with system and included with drivers sketchpad (including pen sensitivity). I can draw with it in gimp, but i can't use brush dynamics because gimp doesn't recognizes my tablet. In Input Devices I see only Core Pointer. I don't know what to do.

I tried to clone  50% opaque layer on another layer. The result is the same as cloning 100% opaque layer. How do I clone translucent and semi-transparent image?

  Workspace
Posted by: gimp-artist - 05-21-2018, 05:47 AM - Forum: General questions - No Replies

My OS is ubuntu 16.04. I use "unity tweak tool" for workspace settings. When I use "super + s" keyboard combination for alternating workspaces, gimp works fine.

However When I use mouse click for alternating workspaces, gimp won't receive any painting inputs. That means I can't paint on the canvas at all.

How do I fix this compatibility issue?

  "Gimp 2.10" Brightness and contrast issues
Posted by: KavatKeeper_666 - 05-20-2018, 01:31 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (3)

I just recently updated from a previous version of gimp to 2.10 and have about 16 minutes ago found that the Brightness and contrast options show a accurate preview of what "should" happen but instead it does nothing.
I also just tried to use "levels" to try and accomplish the same effect but that also did the same thing (nothing)

This is a new image that has RGB color ect, but ill add more information here if i need to clarify things.

  Problem to define a string
Posted by: Petequero - 05-20-2018, 11:25 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (1)

Hello guys, 



I have just solved my probleme of saving file (see thread file-png-save-defaults) by replacing one part of the code for another that I found on internet. 

I would like to understand why the one I use at fist didn't work. 



That is a problem of string building. Below in the code, two different way to build a string (which is eventually insert in the save file-png-save-defaults function).

The option number one is working. The option number 2 is not. Do you have any idea why ? 


Code:
(let*  (
        (destinationPath "C:/Users/Dav/Desktop/File")
        (filename "C:/Users/Dav/Desktop\\image.png")

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Option number 1, which is working ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
     (outputFilenameNoExtension
            (string-append
              (string-append destinationPath "/")
              (unbreakupstr
                (reverse
                  (cdr
                    (reverse
                      (strbreakup
                        (car
                          (reverse
                            (strbreakup filename "\\")
                          )
                        )
                        "."
                      )
                    )
                  )
                )
                "."
              )
            )
          )
          (outputfilename1 (string-append outputFilenameNoExtension ".png"))  ;add the new extension
          
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Option number 2, which is not working ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
          
              (outputfilename2
                    (string-append
                        (string-append 
                            destinationPath "/") ;chemin/
                                (cadr (strbreakup filename "\\")) ;image.png
                    )
                    
            )
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; an then compare (0 means the same) ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

            (comparison (number->string (strcmp outputfilename1 outputfilename2)))
        )

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Print on console ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

        (gimp-message (string-append "Option 1 (working)     :" outputfilename1))
        (gimp-message (string-append "Option 2 (not working) :" outputfilename2))
        (gimp-message (string-append "Comparison (0 means the same) :" comparison))
)

And the crual thing is that the function strcmp, which compare string, display 0, meaning that it is the same string. 
Why then one of them isi working, but the other one is not ?

Thanks in advance for any feedback. 

David
