  Error on Windows Gimp 2.8.20+Python?
Posted by: dinasset - 03-05-2017, 07:22 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

just detected that the parameter "PF_DIRNAME" let the filter crash in Windows Gimp 2.8.20.
Try the test filter by Maldonado "test-batch-cartoon" (attached) or even "test-batch-invert":
after picking of the directory the filter crashes.
First detection was on "contactsheet" (see thread on Gimp-chat).
Is something missing in the environment?

This is the error log, if it could be helpful

  Space bar-left click hangs
Posted by: eingram25 - 03-04-2017, 01:35 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (7)

I have Gimp 2.8.20
Windows 10.
When I try to move using Spacebar-left click combo something hangs. the computer becomes unresponsive. and no matter where I move the mouse, the pointer displays the "move" cross.
I have never had Artrage (4 or 5) hang when using this particular keyboard combination, so I am pretty sure it's in Gimp somewhere.
When this happens, the only way out of Gimp is with task manager; it's completely frozen.

  Pressure Sensitivity Not Working
Posted by: JackAttack - 03-03-2017, 08:31 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have a Wacom Intuos S 2 that I use to draw with Gimp. I am fairly sure that the pressure sensitivity was working in the beginning, however now, it is not working anymore. My guess is this is a setting I accidentally tweaked. Both my tablet and my stylus are set to screen in the input devices configuration, and the pressure curves are default, but it's still not working, any ideas?

  Filters > Repeat and Reshow.
Posted by: trandoductin - 03-02-2017, 02:57 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

When you go to Filters > Repeat [filterA]  or Filters > Reshow [filterA]
Is this information like the procedure name of [filterA] and settings used for it stored somewhere?
If possible I'd like to access that information.
My goal is if possible to create a script that calls that procedure [filterA] with saved settings on visible layers.

This came up because Wallace asked for such a script and i looked for procedures named like 'last' and 'repeat' and nothing came up.
So I am hoping it's stored in some file. So I searched for 'last' and 'repeat' occurrences in my .gimp-2.8 folder and nothing came up and looked like what i am looking for.

  Arrow Script
Posted by: rich2005 - 03-01-2017, 11:04 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (1)

Looking at the available script-fu and plug-ins available for drawing arrows, I found it difficult to find a compromise between very simple hands-on involving manually stroking paths and all-encompassing plugins with a myriad of options.

Decided on this one from http://www.programmer97.talktalk.net/Files/arrow.zip which is kept very up-to-date, with a sensible set of options. Do download it, it comes with a useful PDF on use. Un-zip, put the script arrow.scm in your Gimp profile ./gimp-2.8/scripts folder

I personally like it as a script because;
- I can add it to ofnuts resources manager and load it for occasional use.
- By default the arrows go on their own layers, easy to delete or move
- By default it cleans up after use.

How to use it, make a path, invoke the script. Tools -> arrow.. 

What I do not like are the default settings for 'Length of Wings' and 'Brush Thickness Type', so I have adjusted them in the attached script arrow-set-size.scm
Un-zip, put arrow-set-size.scm in your Gimp profile scripts folder.

A comparison using the default values, of course you can adjust either from the script dialogue for any particular image. The script(s) show up in the Tools menu.


Depending on the type of images edited, very large or small, you might want to permanently change some of the sizes. Not difficult if you stick to the basics. Edit the end of the script. Remember to work on a copy, in case (when) you screw things up.
