Check it out ... i compiled my first Gimp-2.7.4!
http://simplysignage.110mb.com/blog/blo ... 118-090543

You will find more Gimp-2.7.4 plugins in the left menu also. :)
I will be doing much, much more in the future.

My build environment is setup for Gimp-2.7 though so nothing Gimp-2.6 will be compiled.
SamJ does most of those anyways.Gimp-2.8 will be released soon and i want to be able to build the betas from it.

Peace!

Okay i created an installer.
Anyone want to test it?
I already did on my Windows 32 XP system and it worked excellent.
Just a few things to mention
1) If you want python it is enabled you just need Python27 installed.
2) On launch there are 2 errors for TIFF images load and save.Just delete the tiff plugins in the plug-ins folder.
file-tiff-load.exe and file-tiff-save.exe
I will fix this later.Or keep them.Gimp runs fine without them you just can not use Tiff images for some reason.I do not know why this occurs as i have the Tifflibs installed and working.(they should have compiled correctly).
I will either fix this or remove the tiff plugins all together later.
3) This install default installs into C:\Program Files\Gimp-2.7.4
4) There is no shortcut created on the desktop either so you will have to create your own.
5) This install also creates a debug window (development default).This is a usual occurrence for debugging Gimp on launch, and while executing commands while Gimp runs.

That is about it other than if on launch PLUGINS do not load - set the PATH variable.
C:\Program Files\Gimp-2.7.4\gimp-2.7.4\bin

Any takers? :)

I can test on Win7 Enterprise.
If you want i could download virtual box and install Vista :P
Its kinda wierd, cause when we got our computers from school they had Win7 Enterprise, but in the bag there was a cd with Vista ... :P

Yeah, im sticking with 2.6 aswell :P
I downloaded a swf downloader to get a flash game.
But it had a built in software updater checking thing (Ad) and it said "New version of gimp: 3.1 something" :P

But, i got an error message:
"Blablabla... Libglib-2.0-0.dll is missing. Blablabla" im running x64, is that the error ?...

Maffe , Gimp comes with all it's own libraries and shouldn't tell you some are missing.
I compiled the latest GIT developer version of BABL, GEGL, and Gimp-2.7.4.
As far as i know Gimp-3.0 versions are still on the drawing board.

If Gimp-2.8 isn't out within 2 more weeks i will be compiling the latest GIT version again.
Meanwhile if you guys see any plugins written in C that you would like compiled to try them, holler at me or point me to the source files and i will try and compile them for you.

Thanks guys,
-Rod

I compiled Gimp-2.6.11
So now i can compile 2.6 or 2.7/2.8 plugins :)
I was told it doesn't install at all on Windows 7 and i really would like to see that tested again.
Can someone running Windows 7 tell me the Program File PATH for this platform?

Is it the same as Windows XP?
C:\Program Files

Sorry Maffe, Gimp-2.7 is what i was talking about.
My compile for Gimp-2.6.11 went fine and worked well.
However my compile for the last dev version of Gimp-2.4 (2.5 really), went pretty nasty.

There is a final release for Windows builds available at the Sourceforge site now.Official developers release.
Pretty nice setup. :)
The new installer is real cool, and much better.
