So are they implementing single window mode in 2.8 or 2.10?
they gotta keep the option there!!!!
yes! go opensource!
A friend of mines pc went bad and he said: "IM GONNA GET A PIRACY TICKET!!! HELP ME GET THIS OFF!!!"
i laughed and smiled and went "....eh.... ubuntu is free....."
*10 seconds of silence* "oh.... okay... no ticket for me i guess"
So long choices are present = more fun XD
2.7.1 does have layer groups.
WHY THE HECK DIDNT YOU TELL ME THAT!!!!
WHAT?!?!?! AND IM ON LINUX AND STILL USING 2.6.10?! :O Seriously, WHAT THE FORK?
WHAT THE FOOOORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????????? I hate 2.7.1.... Rod can you just pack your whole Gimp 2.7 directory into a ZIP and mail it to me ? :|
Not entirely sure if that will work due to the Preferences folder, but here you go.
Unzip it to your Program Files folder and open the bin folder, right click the Gimp exe icon and send a shortcut to your desktop.I would then go into your user docs and create a gimp 2.7 folder.
After you launch Gimp 2.7 it should create all the other sub folders for you.BUT, you may be better off keeping the 2.7 folder you have in there if you didn't uninstall it yet.
If i were you i would then open Gimp and go to your preferences folder and change the paths to your own. =)
It's already set for Python plug-ins, just add them to your plug-ins folder.I included a few.
Hope it works!
Here's the link:

im gonna just replace the "old" 2.7 folder with yours and then the one in the userdocs will still be there :-D
Just make sure before you launch it to delete everything in the sub folders in user docs gimp 2.7 folder....it's probably all stuff related to 2.6 and wont work, probably why you got all the errors before.
so it says if I install 2.7.1 it will uninstall 2.6! do i want that? :question:
no, rename your 2.0 folder for your 2.6 version to anything other than 2.0
something like just GIMP...just do not forget to rename it back to what it originally was named.
If you do not your shortcuts wont work anymore. =)
And before you install 2.7, create a 2.7 folder in your user docs name it .. . gimp 2.7
Gimp 2.7 installer will recognize it and add folders under it (sub-folders), brushes, scripts, plug-ins ect..ect
This way it wont copy your 2.6 user docs folder, and all its sub-folder and contents, and rename that copy 2.7
2 Gimp in one PC!~ nice one, well won't that make two entries in the add and remove softwares? Just wondering. Anyways, I just want an stable 2.7 and try the featured layer groups... @.@
i dont need to delete, cause its 3 folders
Did it work for you then?
If you get an error when the program loads (PTOOL)
Just go into the plug-ins folder and delete the ptool.exe file.
It needs a different DLL file to run anyways, and its just for panoramas.
