One last note -
If you have no way of editing the path to be safe i would uninstall gimp-2.6.11 and install portable.

I would suggest that you get the portable version off your Dad's computer and put it on your flash drive and then put that on your computer. The only setback is that Python will not be easy to install, but talk to Rod about that, I am pretty sure he got it working


(my usb is my ipod :P)

Thanks for your time and patience but i seem to have figured it out on how to work it.
i took all the .dll files from the bin folder and put it in the lib>gimp>2.0>plugin folder and suprisingly it worked.
I seem to have a feeling on this forums (kinda strange) but i am going to stick around here and help and learn about gimp. thanks for your time
goodnite :D


Basicly you would have needed to create an environment variable
However your system does it.
When you reformat you usually wipe the custom variables that programs will add when they install.
When you install Gimp it adds a path to the bin folder where all the direct link library files are found.
You can keep running it the way you have it but when you update Gimp you will have the same problem.

The best fix is to go into control panel/system/select the advanced tab
Click on environment variables
look in the bottom text area (system variables) and see if you can the variable PATH
click on the word path click on edit
add this with the semicolons to the end of the path (make sure first there is NO semicolon there already) if there is do not add the first semi colon but be sure to add the last one at the end.
;C:\Program Files\gimp-2.0\bin;

be sure C:\program files is your directory where you installed Gimp.
It has to be the path to the gimp-2.0/bin folder where the library files are located.

Hope that helps. :)



if your talking about the first question, then i already fixed that but, when i try to open a file in gimp, gimp crashes.

That would mean you can not add a system variable path?

The way you have it set up now Gimp sees and uses the library files because they are in the plug-ins folder.
Usually when the program crashes on creating a new image the issue lies with GTK.

Is GTK runtimes installed?
Gimp installs GTK with itself to be sure its added.If you re-formatted you probably wiped it.
How did you get Gimp on the new re-formatted machine?

Portable has GTK within itself.
If you want Python-Fu enabled you can just download Gimp Painter and you should be able to use python scripts in it.You can go into edit/pref to set it up (the interface) the way you like it.
It also contains themes, and it is also portable.

But if you do not need python-fu stick with portable that you have.
Sorry i couldn't be much more help to you Wrath, and by the way

welcome to Gimper. :)
