MX 17 Repository: The GIMP Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Sun Apr 29, 2018 8:49 pm

We now have the newly released major new version of the digital image editing program, the GIMP 2.10.0, in the test repository. It also needed quite a few backported libraries from Buster or Sid to allow it to build, including the important libglib2.0 and libfreetype6, but my test install systems still run perfectly with the upgrades.

I don't know if we will ever decide to upgrade libglib2.0 in main, but at least we can now install this exciting new release from the testrepo with the package installer!

Edit: Due to the updated font libraries, you'll need to try a logout and login, or even a reboot, to get the font sizes to look normal after the upgrades.

And this, my friends, is why MX is so cool. The latest and greatest built over the tried and true. Testing now, thanks Stevo, it's good to be back.

It's interesting that it defaults to it's own dark theme now.

Can you change that theme back to light yourself, or?
Edit: edit - preferences - interface - themes, changed the icons theme as well to colored.



Ok installing and whoa.. the font of the panel changed all on its own as it was getting to the setting up stuff part.. just checked, my clock, weather panel, menu, everything got changed. And there is nothing in the settings manager that I can do to change it back.

This is what got done installing the new gimp, I am going to log out and in and hope it gets fixed.
Edit: that fixed it.. oof.

It's finally got support for HiDPI screens. No more microscopic icons in UHD.
Son, someday all this will belong to your ex wife.

Yes, but have not quite found a way to increase font size in the UI.

Was initially puzzled by the font change, but after an overnight power down, it is back to the original.

Edit: edit - preferences - interface - themes, changed the icons theme as well to colored.

Ok installing and whoa.. the font of the panel changed all on its own as it was getting to the setting up stuff part.. just checked, my clock, weather panel, menu, everything got changed. And there is nothing in the settings manager that I can do to change it back.
Yes, thank you.

Probably the new fontconfig, I noticed a change over here too until re-login.

Thanks for the tests--have added the need for restarting after the upgrade to my OP.

I realized that gimp-plugin-registry isn't compatible with this version, so am trying to build a newer version--and the gmic package, too. And there's no gimp-help-X packages from the developers yet for 2.10.

After 14 years of first using PSP Pro followed by switching to Adobe Photoshop for professional image work, I eventually switched to GIMP full-time in 2010. What a nightmare that was at first ... but today I'm happy as can be. I truly love GIMP and the "zillions" of filters that are at our disposal. The learning curve from Photoshop to GIMP was totally extreme though, almost made me go back to Windows a few times, between 2008 and 2010 ...

One thing that's always bugged me in GIMP, is the fact that the brush selection window can't be enlarged. Will that be possible at some point? The zoom function for that is helpful, but when you have a bunch of extra and/or custom brushes, it's a bit of a pain to be scrolling up and down ... especially if you're switching some of those brushes frequently, with some near the top and others near the bottom. Alternatively it would be awesome if the brushes could be categorized .... brush tips & line tools ... arrow styles ... everything else. Then, being able to enlarge that window or needing to scroll constantly, would no longer be an issue. ;)
Brochures, Cards, Banners, T-Shirt graphics, Business Cards, and even gigantic 8 ft by 6.6 ft. banner graphics, it's all good. :happy:
