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.

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 :: Installing / Reinstalling Gimp - System Didn't Show It As Being Installed At All

Aug 18, 2010

I've really borked up my Gimp. I'm running 10.04 64-bit and had at some point installed gimp but don't recall how or where I got it from. The strange part is that neither Synaptic or Ubuntu Software Center showed it as being installed.

Anyway, it started misbehaving (locking up) so I figured I'd uninstall and reinstall. That's when I discovered that the system didn't show it as being installed at all. Needless to say, I couldn't uninstall it so I decided to just reinstall over the top through Ubuntu Software Center. The installation seemed to complete normally but when I tried running it I got an error stating that there was a version mismatch for libgimp and suggesting that maybe I had gimp installed in both /usr and /usr/local. Not knowing what else to do, I uninstalled via Ubuntu Software Center and then removed all gimp related files from both /usr and /usr/local. Lastly, I reinstalled again via the Software Center.

Now when I try to launch gimp I get a box in the panel's Window List titled "Starting Gimp Image Editor" but shortly thereafter it disappears and I'm back to the desktop. I've even tried it all over again but utilizing Synaptic for the final install (as well as apt-get) with the same result - it tries to load and then... nothing. I must have deleted something essential when rooting around in /usr and /usr/local that is not replaced by reinstalling gimp but I have no idea what or where. So now what do I do? I really need gimp installed on this machine. I do have a full system backup but it's a couple of weeks old and I don't want to lose all of the changes that I've made to the system since then.

Ubuntu :: Manually Installing GIMP From Debs

Aug 31, 2010

I'm running lucid, and I want GIMP, because it's what I used when I was packing Windows but, I'm not sure what I need as far as the .debs go, or the order to do it in, as I'm sure there's things that have to be installed before others, and I have no internet at my home, which is why I'm doing things the hard way.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Run Install CD - Installing 10.04 - Lucid Lynx

May 23, 2010

Decided to try out Ubuntu instead of automatically getting the next Windows OS.

I have a Dell Dimension E310 with on board video card (will be relevant soon, I think).

After trying making my own CD and not being able to at least run the LiveCD (thought it was my fault even thought the MD5 #'s matched correctly), I went to Shipit and got a CD delivered of Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). When I put the CD into my computer while running windows, the CD is not recognized, which seems strange to me. When I put the same CD into my work laptop (note that both computers are running XP), I can see the contents of the CD. Decide that it might not be an issue and restart the computer in the hope of booting from the CD. CD is never recognized and looking at the bootmenu, it has USB-cdRom at the top of the list.

More information: CPU is an Intel Pentium 4, 3.2Ghz. I don't believe it is a 64bit computer but I can't verify that. I mention this because I believe the CD I got is the 32bit version and that it should be sufficient but I figured I'd throw it out there in case someone else knew something.

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?

Software :: Attempting To Installing Perl Module Gimp::Fu?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm attempting to set up a GIMP scripts for batch operations on groups of image files. Initially I started reading about the Script-Fu syntax but it looked too convoluted (at least for me, with 15 years of Perl experience at work) in a way it does the simpliest of things so I attempted to use Perl instead of Script-Fu. From reading the docs I see that I need to install "Gimp::Fu" Perl module. I installed "cpan" first, started it and issued the command:

install "Gimp::Fu"

and got a dependency problem:


cpan[1]> install "Gimp::Fu"
CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.18)
Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata

General :: PDFs Open In GIMP On System?

Jul 30, 2010

I installed evince on my Arch Linux system as a PDF reader, and everything was fine for a while. And then I installed GIMP. Since then, PDF files have been opening in GIMP. I've tried reinstalling evince, I've tried editing ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list , I've tried editing /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache, but PDF files still open in GIMP by default.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Gimp On Upgrade

Jan 28, 2010

I recently upgraded to koala, but gimp no longer functioned after upgrade; i.e. open file popup dialogue freezes, crop tool is non-functional, preferences dialogue was absolutely a blank box. Tried un-install/re-install thru both the new software center and synaptic. Same broken result every time. Tried a direct download from gimp.org but ran into a lot of dependency stuff I know nothing about; I'm an end user, not a coder. So, how do I get a functioning install of gimp?

Slackware :: GIMP Installation Is Failed

Dec 29, 2010

It's sort of a pain to find any support on this because GIMP comes pre-installed. For whatever reason it didn't install properly on install, and being lazy and a newbie, didn't bother to research the initial install's error it produced upon attempting to execute it, and instead found another package and installed it.For whatever reason it's still not loading. If it was any other application I'd probably just search for an alternative, but seeing as this is GIMP there isn't really...(there's Krita but GNOME's my favourite WM and I dislike using KDE applications[I'm quite superficial], and I'd probably be using an image editor a lot so yeah).

*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
The config.log complains that it's missing glib.h.


If aptitude shows libglib2.0-dev installed the pc file must exist somewhere.. how to verify that libglib2.0-dev is installed correctly?

General :: Installing Lucid Lynx Using Live Cd On Compaq Presario SR5010NX ?

May 7, 2010

I have been trying to install Ubuntu Lucid Lynx using Live CD on this machine, a compaq Presario SR5010NX, with Celeron D 3.46Ghz CPU. Bios Version American Megatrends, Inc. 5.18, 2007; 2 gigs of RAM with approx. 140 gigs of hard disk space total useable. Has Realtek High Definition audio, graphic chipset Intel 82945G family; Soft data fax modem with smart CP (internal modem). It is connected to my DSL modem/router, Netgear DGN2000, with ethernet cable (as are my other two computers).

I start the installation. Finally the desktop shows up. As soon as I start trying to navigate, my mouse freezes and that's as far as I can go.

Just out of curiosity, I also tried to use my Mint 8 CD. It did the same thing. Gets the desktop up, then freezes. I am so frustrated because I really want Ubuntu on this machine. I planned on wiping out Vista Home Basic and giving the whole thing to Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Gimp Brushes - Not Customizable

Jan 8, 2010

When I choose a brush in GIMP, it does not allow me to change the details of a brush - such as the Angle, Aspect Ratio, Scale, and opacity. The slide bar buttons are there, but there's no "slide", so they cannot be moved.

I'm using 2.7.1 that is the one that came with the 9.10 build and updated normally through the Update Manager.

Ubuntu :: Gimp Can't Save Png Files?

Dec 1, 2010

like to update it on occasion. Recently I attempted to edit an image locally. I use vbulletin, which relies on png for it's forum icons. When I tried to change the default image for a new one I created using GIMP, I saved it as a *.png file. Yet, when I looked at the saved file - it was actually a *.xcf file (which I've never even heard of before).What gives?ensure it is saved with a png extension when I select png extension, instead of the xcf extension it seems intent on saving as?The image was originally a jpg, if that makes any difference. I can't see as it does though. When I was on Windoze, I used Paint Shop Pro - and if I told it to save a file with a png extension, it amazingly saved it with a png extension

OpenSUSE :: Gimp Won't Open / What To Fix It?

Aug 12, 2010

That's basically all I know. I run a KDE desktop and have not recently upgraded. However, for some odd reason, Gimp just won't come up. I see the bouncy Gimp icon next to my cursor and I see a task manager icon at the bottom of my screen but after about 15 seconds, the icon leaves and nothing ever happens. I am a web designer and Gimp is a must have! I'm sorry I don't really have any more details for you - that's all I know. Is there something that I could look for that may be messing up Gimp?
