  Error installing glib-networking
Posted by: crazyBaboon - 10-24-2017, 05:10 PM - Forum: Linux and other Unixen - Replies (2)

I was following the installation instructions to install GIMP GIT in https://ninedegreesbelow.com/photography...tists.html ' My system is Fedora 64 Cinnamon bit.

When I type:

./autogen.sh --prefix=$PREFIX --disable-gtk-doc --with-gimpdir=$HOME/code/gimpdefault/install/config

 I get the following error:

configure: error:

     *** Test for glib-networking failed. This is required.

See the file 'INSTALL' for more help.

Configure failed or did not finish!
What should I do to fix this error?

ps: When I do  
dnf install glib-networking

I get:
Package glib-networking-2.50.0-2.fc26.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
Package glib-networking-2.50.0-2.fc26.i686 is already installed, skipping.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
There is no glib-networking-devel as far as I know.

  Pspi and 8bf ?
Posted by: Bastien - 10-24-2017, 09:11 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (1)

Hi, I am new to this forum and have been using Gimp since it started on Windows.

I guess my question has already been asked several times.
I want to use some 8bf Photoshop plugins.
the pspi file that allows this use is no longer working since version 2.8 of Gimp. Do you know of any other solution?

  Project image onto curve
Posted by: Akir - 10-23-2017, 02:13 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (7)

Hey all,
I'm looking for a way to project a picture onto a cylinder like here: http://gimpforums.com/thread-project-ima...tary-curve
- progressively shorten one axis while leaving the other axis unchanged. I get the idea of the displacement map, but I can't get the gradient right - I don't really get ofnut's formula, nor how to implement it into a gradient...
Thanks in advance,

  Three Layers in One
Posted by: rich2005 - 10-23-2017, 09:35 AM - Forum: Tutorials and tips - Replies (1)

This came up in another section.
Three images divided up into equal(-ish) sections. A useful topic as it introduces some of the basic Gimp tools and editing aids.


Guides and Grids: https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-concepts-i...uides.html
Layer masks: https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-dialogs-st...layer-mask
Selection tools: https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-tools-selection.html

A bit of composition in the layer dialogue...and of course, it has all been done before in the documents https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-image-combining.html

For better or worse my take on the subject 5 minutes duration

  GIMP doesn't respond when closing down
Posted by: lpvmc - 10-22-2017, 01:01 PM - Forum: Installation and usage - Replies (8)


When I want to close GIMP and click the cross-box in the main screen it closes only partially, since the tool boxes left and right of the screen stay open and tell me that GIMP doesn't respond. Clicking them separately wil finally close them.

Any suggestions?

Kindest regards, Leo.

Thumbs Up How do I create a gradient map from an image? [solved]
Posted by: Dave Rove - 10-22-2017, 08:43 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (13)

How do I create a gradient map from an image?

If I have an image that I know started off as greyscale and that somebody has colourized it with a gradient map, and that the resultant image is sufficiently detailed to have all 256 lightness values mapped to a colour -- then how do I create a colour gradient map from that image so that I can colourize images similarly myself?

I know that this is possible because I did it myself a few years back and I have the .ggr gradient maps that resulted, but Google has failed me now and I've forgotten how I did it.

  Removing graph lines from image
Posted by: taratears - 10-21-2017, 08:21 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

        I need to remove the lines from the following image. It was recommended that I use threshold. When I tried that, it removed some of them, but not all of them. In addition, it turned it black and white. Is there anything else that can be done?

  How do I put three pictures(1920*1080 each) in one picture(in 3 parts)?
Posted by: IndianAgent47 - 10-21-2017, 08:01 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (14)

Hi everyone. I downloaded GIMP a week ago. I want to make a thumbnail for my YouTube video, where 3 pictures of 1920*1080 resolution are put in three equal parts in a 1920*1080 picture. I want them to be divided by three slashes (/) rather than a straight line. Thanks!

  Gimp consistently crashing on startup
Posted by: Pancake - 10-20-2017, 06:43 PM - Forum: Windows - Replies (32)

Hey all, I'm having a bit of trouble here.  A few days ago, Windows 10 decided to do an automatic update, and ever since then Gimp crashes on startup, specifically when updating the tag cache. 

Here's the exact error message.

[Image: ref.png]

Currently I'm using gimp 2.8.22, however when the problem first started happening I was using a slightly older version.  I had uninstalled and reinstalled gimp several times, attempting to solve the problem.  

I don't have any brushes or plugins installed, and I only had one font installed, although I probably don't anymore, since I had deleted every file on my computer with the name Gimp attached to it.

This problem is frustrating to say the least, and I'd greatly appreciate any help.  Thanks!
