XCF plugin with Gimp.app

Installation and Mac OS specific issues.

I think I've changed my mind. Since the quicklooklpugins depends on gimp.app it seems like a good idea to bundle it within the app.
About the transparent: I think it's important to show transparency, no other ways to speed up to process?

Mortimer, last time I tried it seemed to me like gimp-console was loading all plug-ins, etc. maybe there is a way to tell it that we don't need any plug-ins, and to not load them?

Maybe take a look at those flags :

--no-data
--no-fonts

there might be others...

ok, I tried:
no-fonts and no-data
real 0m7.651s
user 0m5.816s
sys 0m1.714s

no-fonts
real 0m8.335s
user 0m5.896s
sys 0m1.792s

normal
real 0m8.110s
user 0m5.888s
sys 0m1.757s

no-data:
real 0m7.788s
user 0m5.875s
sys 0m1.715s

Just tried one run each with the same image and output parameters. I wonder what happen if we don't load fonts and there is a text layer in the xcf... I will have to test, 7.6 against 8.1s is not a great gain, but it's still that. I am not sure what the timeout is for the thumbnail generation, will have to ask the quicklook mailling list.

AFAIK text layers in GIMP are bitmap, so there should be no problem

We'd still need to find a way to not load plug-ins, if it's possible

ok, --no-data still loads the plugins :(
do we need to bundle all the py plugins. I mean, we know that they are broken with the distribution for now.. (this is not the right solution, but just saying ;)

Maybe it would work to point it to a modified gimprc file, where plug-in-path is set to empty

Yeah, that could be the way, the man says: "-g, --gimprc
    Use an alternative gimprc instead of the default one. Useful in cases where plug-in paths or machine specs may be different"

will try that tomorow.

hehe, it's called hang over and easter WE ;)

I tried making a custom rc, but there is something wrong for now. Gimp doesn't find the script fu interpreter if I don't provide a plug-ins directory :(

I may be stating the obvious here but this shouldn't\wouldn't work with Tiger because it doesn't have Quicklook. Auria are you trying to make this work in Tiger?

I was asking because it seemed like Auria was trying to compile it on Tiger. So I was thinking if so it's probably not worth the effort to fix it so it does compile under Tiger since it wont work there. In case anyone misunderstood I wasn't asking if there was going to be a Tiger version.
