    Yeah the first version of the cage tool is supposed to come out with the very next version.
    I hear right around early December possibly the 11th. =)

    I am trying to compile a 2.7.2 windows version with wsys, and MinGW
    I will let you know how it goes. So far i was able to run the gimpshell.sh file which downloads all gimps dependencies like gtk,libraries,and alot of other files.And i was able to run the configure file in the gimp source.
    I ran into trouble when the compiler needed the newest version of intltool perl module.I can not find it for windows.Just tonight i spent a good while on trying to compile it in cygwin. :'(

    I am learning a lot though! I am pretty confident i can download any c plug-in and compile it into an exe for windows now.So that's a great start. :D

    The tool is now in the master branch of current GIMP development, so it will come with GIMP 2.8. =)

    I can't wait for Gimp 2.8, this is gonna be an amazing help for future projects. Feels like it's taking forever for the release (December 27th if I'm not mistaken), but it's for the better as Gimp's gonna have so many updates, and improvements. I think I'm falling in love with Gimp 2.8 lol :)

    you will find the latest tarballs here for compiling. =)
    this way you do not have to wait for a release, it will automake and autoconfig through git.

    Go here for instructions on compiling from git on Ubuntu

    **********************************************************************

    This doesn't work for windows however, because it (CYGWIN), doesn't understand the commands.
    I tried it on msys with minGW and got the same results

    However i may still be able to compile it for windows if i can get intltool working correctly
    I downloaded and installed the latest version set the path variable and set the environment variable to force intltool to use the xml parser in active perl.
    However this is still the result...
    The tarball is already unzipped using CYGWIN...

    Install intltool? if you already got it installed and it doesnt work... on linux I would do a link from your old version to the new version :D Don't know how it works on windows, but on linix it's something like
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/lib/whatever /usr/lib/whatever
    =)

    Alternatively instead of compiling a tarball you can add the following to your software sources.
    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/matthaeus123/mrw-gimp-svn/ubuntu lucid main
    The open your terminal and put down the following terminal commands.
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 405A15CB
    Update your software repository.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then install gimp...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gimp

    Yeah i am using windows, trying to compile a windows setup. =)
    My terminal doesn't understand the command sudo

    INTLTOOL is on my machine and installed, for some reason the script can not find it, and that's my problem.
    I am thinking it has to be the path variable.Or this just isn't possible with Wsys or cygwin...lol
    I have tried both with the same results.


    Or possibly i have it installed in the wrong directory?
    Where is it installed in Linux? User/bin/perl ??

    Thanks though for your help guys
