  Gimplensfun for 2.10 crashes during launch of Gimp
Posted by: i5963c - 07-09-2018, 03:09 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Since I performed the upgrade to Gimp 2.10 (Win10, 64bit), I'm no longer able to apply lens corrections with the Lensfun plugin. It worked perfectly with the various 2.8 versions.
As soon as the gimplensfun plugin is installed, it's even no longer possible to launch Gimp, the application throws an error message during the launch process ('The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application').
I'm aware that (a long time ago) there was also a problem with gimplensfun for Windows with the Gimp 2.8 version. The solution for that problem was to install a special version of libstdc++-6.dll, but that solution doesn't solve the issue with the 2.10 release of Gimp.
Lens correction is quite important in my use cases since I do a lot of architecture photography. It strikes me that I can't find anything on the internet about this issue. It's hard to believe that I would be the only person who uses this plugin, and who encounters this problem since the 2.10 version.
PS: I've tried with all 2.10 versions (initial release, 2.10.2 and recently 2.10.4) and the issue still persists. I've also tried already clean installs, but it doesn't help.
Any suggestions or solutions are highly appreciated.

  Tool options not remembered?
Posted by: mholder - 07-09-2018, 10:12 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

I am having an issue with the tool options whenever I start Gimp.

I want black and white to be the FG/BG colors when I start, but recently Gimp is loading with the last colors I had before I last closed Gimp.

I unchecked save tool options on exit.  I remembered saving the tool options with black and white FG/BG.  I tried it again to make sure.  But still, Gimp loads with the last setting when I closed last.

I am using the 2.10.4 appimage

  Text Box - Point size default is in Pixels
Posted by: Paul E. Lehmann - 07-09-2018, 09:18 AM - Forum: OSX - Replies (6)

Just started using Gimp 2.8 on my new MAC.  Had a problem with no text showing up on my project even though I could type in text box.  I could see a mini micro of something happening at the top of the text box but no text appearing.  Searched the net and checked to make sure I was using RGB and checked canvas size, layer position etc etc.  Finally, double clicked on the text tool and found out that the default setting for text size was PIXELS and not POINTS. Pretty darn hard to see your text when it is 24 pixels and not points Cool Changed to POINTS and everything now well.  Just thought I would give a heads up in case anyone else is having problems using the test tool.  Developers should be notified of this default setting and have it changed to points for text size.

Question How does GIMP 2.10.4 load the layers of the PSD file?
Posted by: SenlinOS - 07-09-2018, 05:36 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (7)

GIMP 2.10.4 In order to display the PSD file correctly, the "Merge" function is activated! 
But how should I show all the layers?  Sad

I'm writing a fairly technical doc where a concept of "layers" is heavily involved. So to make schemas easily I wrote a script that transforms a flat stack of layers in Gimp into the 3D stacked image:

  Can't connect to the gimp plugin registry
Posted by: Ninilac - 07-08-2018, 07:03 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (5)


I'm a returning Gimp user and I'm trying to access the gimp plugin registry, but it seems to be down or something: it isn't responding.
Did the website change? I'm trying to get the layer effects plugin and I can't find a download link from any other website...

Link: http://registry.gimp.org/glossary/g

Edit: oops, just realized this is in the wrong section, sorry

Question Trying to Edit a Pre-Existing Animated Gif, frames get fuzzy
Posted by: mattig89ch - 07-07-2018, 12:32 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello all,

I'm attempting to edit an animated Gif file.  This one to be exact:

[Image: archer-metoo.gif?w=650]

I want to remove everything prior to when Kreiger says "me too!".  But, every time I delete the frames prior to that, the image gets fuzzy.

This is the end result:

I'm not sure what I did wrong, or how to fix it.  Does anyone have any experience with editing Animated GIF files?  If so, do you know what I did wrong?

  Error: missing dependency appstream-glib >= 0.7.7
Posted by: crazyBaboon - 07-07-2018, 09:09 AM - Forum: Linux and other Unixen - Replies (1)

Hi folks,

I am following the instructions on https://gitlab.com/CrazyBaboon/GIMP-git_...git-Fedora , and the compilation on my Fedora GNOME desktop was successful until last week.Since then I have been getting a

Error: missing dependency appstream-glib >= 0.7.7

when I compile try to compile Gimp.

The compilation process was fine for the other libraries such as babl and gegl.

I have libappstream-glib-0.7.9-1.fc28.x86_64 and libappstream-glib-builder-devel-0.7.9-1.fc28.x86_64 installed already, so I have no idea on what to do. Any advice?

  2.10.4 and Font Tags
Posted by: Espermaschine - 07-07-2018, 06:11 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

(04-15-2017, 09:20 AM)rich2005 Wrote: The link between a brush folder name and the Gimp Brushes Dialogue. The folder name is used as a brush tag.
Type a tag in at the top of the brushes dialogue and that will isolate the brushes in that section.

This doesnt work for me in 2.10.4.

It works for the other resources but not for fonts.....

EDIT: more info from the Gimp.org site

Quote:Fonts Tagging
Michael Natterer introduced some internal changes to make fonts taggable. The user interface is the same as for brushes, patterns, and gradients.

GIMP doesn’t yet automatically generate any tags from fonts metadata, but this is something we keep on our radar. Ideas and, better yet, patches are welcome!
