Ubuntu :: Gimp Batch Mode - Predetermined Layer On Another Image - Export As Png And Discard Changes

Jan 3, 2011

I want a simple short gimp batch script that will take one image, paste it into a predetermined layer on another image, export as png and discard changes. Unfortunately, I can't find any tutorials on using gimp batch. Anyone know any such tutorials (Or better yet, what my script needs to be)

So far this is what I have. I need a way to loop through the layers to check the name of them, I also need a way to ditch the previously opened files from memory (Otherwise gimp still has both images in memory) (I'm going to mark this solved so I can make a cleaner post once I get it together)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gimp 2.7 And Python (Import Error - No Module Named Gimp)

Mar 2, 2010

If you had Gimp 2.6 (with gimp-plugin-registry installed) and installed Gimp 2.7 to try its new goodies, but Layer Effects are not showing, and when executing "gimp" from console you get these *nasty* errors:

This is a development version of GIMP. Debug messages may appear here.
gimp-user-install: migrating from /home/user/.gimp-2.6
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/layerfx.py", line 23, in <module>
import gimp, gimpplugin, math
ImportError: No module named gimp .....

If you haven't install the 2.7 version yet. Before upgrading, backup "python" directory and then just restore it after installing 2.7.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Synfig - Everything Invisible On Creating New Layer Or Shape

Apr 3, 2010

I've been interested in Synfig for a while. In the last version of Ubuntu, there were some problems so I couldn't install it. Yesterday I remembered the program and decided to try it on 9.10. I was amazed, it installed fine and everything worked just how it should. Then later last night, I must have done something because everything turned invisible and when I created a new layer or shape, nothing new appeared.

I fiddled with it for a while and then reinstalled the program a total of like 3 times just in case that would help. Then, I went straight to the Synfig site and downloaded the newest version. It looked better, different, but it behaved exactly the same. I'm very confused and I would like to use Synfig, it seems amazing. I assume there's some little thing I missed or something I pressed that I shouldn't have. Here are screen shots of both versions.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Flash Content Covered With Pink Layer

Mar 10, 2011

I try to watch flash content but everything is covered with a pink layer... (see attachment file). I am using firefox (same prob with opera!) and flash 1.0.2.r152 in ubuntu 10.10 with compiz disabled and GPU Override set to true (no difference with false..) I tried FlashAID for a clean setup and I have only flashplugin-installer on my laptop (no gnash or libswf...), I also tried it with the package "adobe-flashplugin" same problem. This and the a2dp-skips are my last problems before a perfect setup.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Accidentally Turned Double-layered DVD To Single-layer?

Jun 5, 2010

Every time I right click on my CD/DVD with my DVD+RW popped in the drive, it freezes for like 10 minutes and then it unfreezes with nothing happening.I think I formatted it before using ImgBurn but when I did it went from 4.7GB capacity to 3GB. Is it possible that I accidentally turned my double-layered DVD to single-layer? If so is there a way to turn it back to double-layer?

Ubuntu Installation :: Gimp - Gimp-help-en - On 10.04 Lucid Lynx - Installing Other Applications And Preforming System Tasks?

Jun 12, 2010

Some of you may have had with issues after installing GIMP on Lucid Lynx 10.04. Which may be directly related to "gimp-help-en", which could prevent you from installing other applications and preforming system tasks. If so, use this method to fix it.

Process: (Terminal > $ sudo apt-get install gimp)

1. After installing Gimp go to the terminal:

2. Then load up the language support application:

3. Then it will ask you to install the "gimp-help-en", confirm it.

4. Fix'd

I think this issue is directly linked to a systems with multiple languages, but I haven't been able to test this theory out yet.

Debian Multimedia :: MPlayer Video Output In Layer Beneath Console Text

Jan 26, 2011

When I try to play a dvd and give mplayer no options, it defaults to "X11" for the video output, which maxes out the cpu. To get around this, firstly I tried to play the dvd using "cvidix" in the console.

I used the following command:
mplayer -ao alsa -vo cvidix -fs -framedrop -stop-xscreensaver -dvd-device /dev/dvd1 dvd://1
This played the dvd, but the console text was still visible over the top of the movie; i.e. mplayer was playing in the layer beneath the console text

Then I tried using xvidix in X:
mplayer -ao alsa -vo xvidix -fs -framedrop -stop-xscreensaver -dvd-device /dev/dvd1 dvd://1
This gives a green line about 5mm thick down the right side of the screen, but other than that it is ok.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 64-bit: Gimp Can't Open Jpeg

Apr 25, 2011

Somewhere along the line I have managed to get the below error when loading a jpeg in the gimp (either with 'open with' on context menu or directly)Running as an unprivileged user


Calling error for procedure 'file-jpeg-load':

Procedure 'file-jpeg-load' not found
Opening '/home/fortyfourgalena/Desktop/photos/liza/inkosanalodge_20061201/20061201_171151_PC010620.jpg' failed: Procedure 'file-jpeg-load' not found


This happens on a system running 10.04 / 64-bit. As I seem to recall a recent gimp update (might be wrong), I checked a 32-bit 10.04 laptop and it does not show the behavior. For information: the 64-bit system has some additional stuff installed for image processing (ufraw and darktable) but I have been using this already for a while without issues. The other main change on this 64-bit system before I noticed the problem was the installation of a geforce 8400 video card including the 'nomodeset' option in grub and install of the latest driver from the nvidia website. verify that the gimp on a 64-bit system is still functioning.Further a 'repair' from within synaptic throws the following error


E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gimp_2.6.8-2ubuntu1.2_amd64.deb: subprocess dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile returned error exit status 2

Note: I found some messages regarding this problem on the web but they were referring to older kernels (2.6.8); and people reverted back to an even older kernel. And yes, there have been a recent kernel upgrade.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Automatically Logout After Using GIMP For A While?

May 17, 2011

like the title says, after working in GIMP for, like, 5 minutes, my session suddenly closes and I have to login again. I have been looking a lot of time for a solution, but I've not seen anyone with this problem... does anyone of you have some kind of solution? I'm desperate. I really need to use it, and I don't want to use Wine+Photoshop, I don't like to rely on windows programs.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gimp & Wacom - Sketching Brushes

Feb 4, 2010

I have been recently using the GIMP, transferring from adobe photoshop. and the truth is i have been pleasantly surprised with GIMP, especially when comparing prices from the two. Anyway the one thing i have not been able to do, that i assume is possible is make a brush that i am able to sketch with with my wacom tablet.

what i mean by this is in adobe i was able to create a brush that would react affectively to the pressure senstivity and i would get nice realistic looking sketches that looked like pencil sketches. when i barley pressed on my tablet i would be light and when i pressed hard i was able to get the black line needed. i have messed around with the pressure settings on the brushes but havent noticed any difference when i press hard on my tablet or barely press at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Make Digital Camo On Gimp?

Mar 23, 2010

I've been searching for a while now and come up empty handed, but after some research on the history of digital camouflage and how it was created I was able to devise a simple method for creating at least a close approximation of the real thing.

Step 1: start with a picture of the "texture" you intend to use. it doesn't matter if it's a low resolution picture because you are going to intentionally pixelate it

Step 2: use the noise plugin "pick" and create some static in the picture. I've found that you can just set everything to maximum and apply the pick with good results.

Step 3: (optional) if you want this to be a repeating pattern, at this time apply the "make seamless" tool under Map plugins.

Step 4: Apply a pixel blur. dial it in just to where you start to see hard pixel edges forming. In most digital camo patterns, the pixels are taller than they are wide, about a 3:2 ratio

Step 5: Choose the number of colors you want in your camo pattern. Virtually all digital patterns are either three or four colors, but never any more than that. Change the image mode from RGB to 4 color indexed. Then you can change it back to RGB if you wish to change the colors in your camo.

you can play with the settings on each step to dial in something that looks proper. The proper scale for your camo is roughly 1/4" tall pixels. Try playing with different textures, or even non digital camo prints. In about two minutes we've just created both a woodland and a desert digital print that is close enough to pass for MARPAT using free software.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GIMP Won't Load After Installing Plugins

Jul 21, 2010

I decided not to use Photoshop in wine on my computer but to only use GIMP because I heard there is so many free plugins on the internet that makes it function almost exactly as Photoshop.I install plugins but then GIMP wont open at all.I did a complete fresh install of 10.04 because I was having this GIMP problem after installing gimpshop and installing Photoshop 7, I figured it was the Photoshop that caused the problem

So now with a complete fresh install GIMP still wont work with any plugins installed.is there something i need before I can add any plugins or whats going on?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Why Is The Layers Palette In GIMP Not Showing Any Info

Mar 10, 2010

I add layers and they don't show up and the controls at the bottom of the layers palette (add layer, bin, etc) are all blanked out and i can't select them. It's impossible to do anything with layers in GIMP as it is at the moment and i need to get it sorted. I have tried closing down the layers tab, restarting GIMP and then adding the tab again but i get the same result, a layers palette that won't respond or show any layers that i do add.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GIMP Zoom Level Dropdown Box Missing?

Jul 17, 2010

There used to be a dropdown menu at the bottom right corner of the main window of GIMP (the window with whatever image i'm working on), where i would be able to select between zoom levels (such as 50%, 100%, etc). Recently, that menu seems to have disappeared, and i've had to use the actual zoom tool, which i find frustrating since i have to switch back and forth between tools.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GIMP Scale Image Without Anti-aliasing?

Jul 17, 2010

I want to make an 8-bit looking image that has very large pixels. My solution was to make a 50x50 image, zoom in, draw it with the 1x1 pixel pencil tool, and then scale it to whatever size i want.Everything went well except, when i try to scale it the anti-aliasing kicks in and blurs everything. Is there a way that i can disable anti-aliasing?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Opening Images In Gimp And Controling Their Relative Size?

Jul 27, 2011

this should be easy but I dont know which option to use. I want to make a flier with Gimp, learned how to add fonts that are better than the crappy ones that come by default, but now I want to add images but want them to automatically scale to a size that I specify with a square I create by left clicking. I dont want to have to resize the entire image after measuring, I just want it to shrink/expand to fit an area that I specify for it.

Debian Multimedia :: Extremely Slow Loading Of Image Files In GIMP

Jun 16, 2010

I've had this odd, stubborn problem that seems to be related to the nouveau video driver and certain kernel builds: opening or saving full resolution jpeg image files using GIMP takes from 1-5 minutes and causes xorg CPU usage to reach almost 100%.This also occurs when using UFRaw to open Canon raw image files. The problem is not intermittent, it happens each time I open a file. Opening photos in the default image viewer works fine.This bug has vexed me on and off for the last couple of months, and seems to be triggered by a combination of kernel version and the Nouveau driver. I switched to Debian Squeeze from Ubuntu 10.04 because I was experiencing slow image open times in Ubuntu 10.04 (using the Nouveau driver).I did not experience the bug running Squeeze with the nv driver and kernel 2.6.32-3.

I did not have the bug running Squeeze with the nouveau driver and kernel 2.6.32-5 backported from Sid.I began experiencing the bug again after the Squeeze updates on June 14th (still running nouveau and kernel 2.6.32-5). I update daily so it's likely to be that day's updates which caused the bug to reappear.Just for grins, I installed the Liquorix kernel. The bug does not occur using kernel 2.6.34-0.dmz.10-liquorix-686 and the nouveau video driver.I have a Nvidia FX5500 video card. I prefer the nouveau driver to nv as my display seems to behave better. The Nvidia proprietary drivers are not an option because they produce X freezes when I am doing photo editing. The liquorix kernel seems to be working fine, but for long-term stability I'd rather be running a mainline Debian kernel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Move Windows From One To Other

Oct 20, 2010

I have just had a really frustrating week of trying to get ubuntu and windows 7 to place nice together. Finally got both running correctly on the same machine.Problem I am having now is in ubuntu the nvidia drivers it told me to download and install use something called x server.I have played with every option I can find in the settings, and I dont see one to fix my problem.

Put simply I can not move any window from one screen to the other. It acts like two septate desktops. This wouldn't even be so bad if when I opened firefox or chrome on the other monitor it would open on that monitor. But neither does. They both open on monitor one no matter what screen I open them from.Ideally I would like to be able to grab a window and move it to the other monitor and vis versa just like you can in any windows install.Can anyone help me do this please? Or at least tell me how to make a browser stay open on the screen I open it from?
