@ Auria
Of course I will share them.
I've recently made a whole build environment for Gimp/MacPorts. The current 2.6.0 build uses various (12) patched Portfiles. This way I got rid off some MacPorts erros (the really annoying "p5-getopt-long" bug... :) ) and could reduce the packages which need to be build. I still need some time to write some docs about all the scripts I'm using to manage this....

@The Albino1
I hope it will .... ;)
Currently there are only some really, really minor things, that have to be, let's say, checked and tested. IMO, I will release a "bugfree" (meaning: as far as possible bugfree integration into OS X) Gimp bundle. Please continue testing and posting....

@Albino1
hhmmm...
... try this:
go to /tmp/skl and delete Gimp.app by doing:
Code: Select all
rm /tmp/skl/Gimp.app

and relaunch Gimp 2.6.0

is there any error shown, if you launch Gimp in Terminal.app?

open Terminal.app and cd to your "...Gimp.app/Contents/Resources" and do "./script".

Are there any errors? Can you post the output?

The Albino1: launch Gimp from the terminal as described in a sticky topic on these boards (unless Simone's build are so different from ours it doesn't apply, but i wouldn't think so)

puuh,

let's try it:

(I'm german, so I'm not quiet sure if all paths, directories ... are correct)

- start "Terminal" (usually in "Application/Utilities"
- asuming you've downloaded Gimp to "/Applications" type:

Code: Select all
cd /Application/Gimp-260*/C*/R*
./script

Are there any errors? What's the output in Terminal.app?

ok, last try...

If you've downloaded the *.dmg from my site, the app in the *.dmg is named "Gimp-260rc1". Then, if you installed this app into "/Applications", a "cd /Applications/Gimp-260*/C*/R*" should work. Yep.
