    I just recognized, that there's a "Gimp for Windows" Section and a "Gimp for Mac" Section and a "Gimp for others" Section :mad: Why not change the "Gimp for others" Section to "Gimp for Linux" ? Because GIMP is (im not sure, but I think) on almost every linux distribution ready-use installed. I think GIMP is very popular @ linux pcs, so lets change the name :D

    Not sure why Shark did that. Probably because we don't get many problems for Linux, it's usually Windows or Mac.

    Hmpf :( :(

    In my opinion there also should be a section called "GIMP for Linux" xD
    I could start there with a tut on how tot install brushes, gradients, patterns etc. :D

    As David said, most problems we get are either Mac or Windows related, and very few Linux or other OS problems, so I decided to merge the other ones.

    Yea, so if there was a thread for linux, I don't see it being posted in very much in the future (I hardly see the "other" thread being posted in in the future xD). And its kind of a waste of space and doesnt look too good to have that much of an underused thread ya know =P
