  Transparent Background Troubles
Posted by: sarahladdnewton - 08-06-2018, 04:50 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I am using GIMP 2.10.4. I am trying to create a logo with a transparent background and I think that I know how to make the background transparent, but after I do, I can't draw on it. I can draw if I don't try and make it transparent. This is what I have been doing to make it transparent:

First, I open a new window. Then I go to "File" and select "New" from the menu. In the "create a new image" box, click the arrow next to "px" and select inches from the drop down menu. I enter my desired print size next to "width" and "height" and select "ok".
Then I go over to the right side of the window where the layer is listed and I right click on the black square with the word "background" next to it. I select "Edit later attributes", I set the opacity to zero, and I select ok.

After I do all this, I try to draw a line, and I can't.

Please help!

  No Text to Path Option in Tool
Posted by: Raining Star - 08-06-2018, 12:05 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Morning, I'm new to the forum.

I'm following a YouTube tutorial and I find that my Tool Options Box doesn't give me the same "Text to Path" I'm seeing in the video Tool Options Box. The video is 2.8 and I'm using 2.10.4.
I've tried changing from Fixed to Dynamic without success.

  How to increase tool icons size and with colors
Posted by: plumbergp - 08-06-2018, 07:14 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (4)

New to GIMP. Started with 2.8 last year, just upgraded to 2.10.4 today.

I have tried to increase the tool icons size by checking the preferences etc. No luck. Annoying when the icons are so small.

Noted in 2.10.4, the icons are not colored anymore. How can I bring back the colored icons? Easier to pick the right icons when they are in colors.

Many thanks.

Hi there everyone,

Is it possible to make a circle using the elillpse tool then make a line to were you cut of the bottom bit and have the remaining top bit so you can use that nice curve to use as a path and put text on it..
Otherwise you got to play around manually with the path tool to create such a shape..

Thanks for viewing..

  Run Wacom script on Ubuntu startup
Posted by: Alan Lacey - 08-04-2018, 05:32 PM - Forum: Other graphics software - Replies (5)

I'm very new to Linux, running Ubuntu 18.04, mainly for graphics applications and, having installed and mainly got working a Wacom Tablet, now need to run the terminal line:     xsetwacom --set "Wacom Intuos4 WL Pen stylus" area 1000 1000 20320 12700    each time I return to Ubuntu.  It's running in VMware and I'm constantly flipping into and out of it.

As, when I enter the command it only sticks until I flip out and then back into Ubuntu, is there a way of automatically running the terminal line each time it's necessary?

Many thanks

  Beautify Plugin Error
Posted by: Howitser - 08-04-2018, 04:07 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (3)

I'm running GIMP 2.10.4 on Windows 10, 64 bit, and getting an error when trying to use Beautify.  I've copied to two directories & four exe files to by plugins directory.  When I try to use Beautify it does launch, but I only get a few of the overlays to use.  If I try to use the Simple Border option, when I select one of the borders I get a Gimp Message:

Calling error for procedure 'gimp-context-set-pattern':

Pattern 'Clipboard' not found

Any ideas/help?  Again, the plugin does launch, and for the Rip & Texture borders I get only one page of 15 choices, no others to select or scroll through.

Thanks in advance!

  Gimp plugins folder ? locked
Posted by: Alan Lacey - 08-04-2018, 05:24 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (9)

I have a new install of Gimp 2.10 on a VMware Ubunto 18 on a MacBookPro.

I'm starting to learn python-Fu and for some reason can't copy my *.py script to the Gimp plugins folder. I'm a real new to Linux and have no idea why this is. The permissions for the plugin folder are read & write (Parent = root)

Any ideas why this would be?

Also , do you have any suggestions for tutorials, learning materials for creating scripts.  I've been a photoshop user for many years but now want to use gimp and specifically replace photoshop's 'automate' macro recorder with gimp scripts

With many thanks

Photo Is it Possible to Remove Guides Individually?
Posted by: abajan - 08-04-2018, 03:02 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

So, I was working on a document and inserting guides to help me align various elements. But now I don't need many of the guides, but still want to retain some of them. I know how to remove all of them (Image > Guides > Remove all Guides), but how do I remove just some? For instance, what if I wanted to delete just those indicated in the example below?
