Discussion in 'GIMP for Windows' started by Wrath, May 19, 2011.
Mola would be one of the users he is using in Windows.
Yeah I figured that much, just wondering what the heck it is
And I PMed Rod over on GIMP Chat, where he checks more, and hopefully he can help you
Its on my school computer, and my username is the first two letters of my firstname and surname (?)
thanks and reinstalling it didnt work
Morten interesting name
@Wrath, sorry that reinstalling didn't work, hopefully Rod has a solution
Yes, its a norweigan name
Mister Wrath, do you have any plugins installed?
i have not installed any plug-ins since the installization
except the transfer of .dll folders from the bin to G:\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins
first thing that strikes me is that gimp now looks for the files to open images in the same place...
I would suggest a clean-clean install
Un install gimp, delete the gimp user folder, delete the gimp system folder (if the uninstaller didnt take it) and then re-download gimp and reinstall.
But if you are going to run it of your ipod, may i suggest a portable version:

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.
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.
Oh and you need administration rights to alter the system variable paths.
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.
if your talking about the first question, then i already fixed that but, when i try to open a file in gimp, gimp crashes.
Can you download and install programs?
He doesnt have admin rights i think...
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?
He installed Gimp on a usb device (his ipod) on his fathers computer!
I suggested Portable somewhere
i dont have Gtk runtime i think
but i got portable now.
*Rod notified and has arrived*
And is portable working?
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.
Havent tried Portable yet, will try on Tuesday,
and btw adding fonts, the fonts that i put into my C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\.gimp-2.6\fonts, will it be added to portable to?
and what exactly does a python-fu script do?
Edit: checked out gimp painter, didnt see any links to download.
mind providing me with one? thanks.
