Python and Gimp
Posted 26 January 2009 - 12:58 AM
So now I am doing the un-thinkable by downloading Photoshop CS4
I want to slit my wrists cuz I am a hardcore Gimp Fan
Honestly they need to make an installer like the GAP for this shit

Problem is who are the "they" that "need to make a installer".
Not Python people they already provided a installer, nor the developer of the other libraries for the same motive, not Gimp developers .
Let say that nobody that could make such installer never felt the need to do it, maybe also because may be a nightmare maintain updated a similar installer.
I honestly can't see a big difference in clicking on a installer once then clicking on 5 installers, sure only one time will be better but the concept is the same and seems simple: click on the installers to install.
So if you have specific problem you may report there and we will try to help
you prefer solve with Photoshop CS4 seems a good idea
PS CS4 is a excellent program, its knowledge is often required for commercial work, so may be good decision for both you and Adobe that always appreciate new customers and related new income.
Photoshop has no support for PY script, but has a good macro (="action") recorder that in gimp is still missed , and better support for printer

more important link ,a pack that contain everything needed ,including a how to,is correct and still work
http://photocomix-resources.deviantart. ... r-74889017.
I updated the content just after 2.6 and still work with last stable
then may be released in the time while some more recent update of some of the libraries included, if you want check and report you are welcome.
But first note that updates must be checked for compatibility, as example a more recent version of Python is available but that new version was incompatible with some of the library...(i use was because this may change )

how that page is related to thevtopic ?
If you search for python on that webpage, there are several results provided which would seem to be relevant.

useManager = yes
gimpPath = C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\brushes
userPath = C:\Gimp Brush Palette\Brushes
extensions = .gbr,.vbr,.gih,.abr,
Here is my gurm.py command line :
GURMINI = "C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\gurm.ini"
That should be correct as I followed the read me for installing python and gimp to the letter as stated in this thread. Maybe I am missing something?
When I try to start the gurm console, it says that the .ini file cannot be found. It is in the plug in folder as stated in the read me's.

as now i will check that the extension of the ini file was not accidentally changed when you saved, in gurm.ini.txt , note that windows may hide .txt extension
(that may be corrected in Start/Search/option uncheck "hide extension for commune files" if checked...no reason to have most file extension hided but that is the windows default.
well check that first, and uncheck that option if active

Did all the installs and restarts in order and even reinstalled Gimp. I don't get it. The .py and .ini file are in the plug ins folder in Gimp. There is only two paths to create and one line to change in the .py.
Just ugh. :?

in search in Tool menu search Option
There is "general" and another tab something a as "visualize"...not sure how may be called in english here the screenshoot
once found click OK is not sufficient :
instead once edited the options click "Apply" , then "apply to all subfolders and files", and then , finally OK
If we do not see the real file extension, we can't rule out most probable problem, the file saved as .txt happen often because the right option , save as "all files" is more hidden

Anyway Gimp 2.6.6 doesn't seem to have any bugs in it.
2.6.4, on the other hand did have some issues, but .6 seems to have them ironed out.
Not a big fan of 2.6, as I really liked having the file opening mechanism on the toolbox.

I'm going to try to DL the latest Python with the conversion tool and then continue on with the Read Me instructions.
Is there any reason why I should not do it this way? I don't know enough about it for any red flags to pop up for me.
Dirty Eddie, I'll let you know how that turns out for me. Thanks for your opinion of 2.6. I guess I'll have to give it a try. Hopefully I won't mourn my 2.4.
Edit: I can't seem to find the download for the conversion tool, so maybe I won't be getting the latest version. When I click it, I am taken to a log and when I select the download link in the log I only get text. Anybody know how to get this conversion tool downloaded or is this something I have to change in the coding? Where can I find info on how to do that?
Also, these appear to be the latest versions of these components. Is there any reason why I should not be using the latest versions?
Python 3.0.1 http://www.python.or...ython-2.6.1.msi
GTK+ Runtime Environment http://garr.dl.sourc....11-win32-1.exe
The latest binaries above only support Python 2.6 - good reason not to get 3.0.1 at this point.
Also, the image in the read me comes up as unavailable. Do you still have it posted?

Maybe now you should be able to use phython 2.6 before gimp 2.6.5 was needed a older version,(i didn't update because would be confusing having 2 different pack for gimp 2.6 (1 for before gimp 2.6.5 and one for after).
Basically that combination works, is possible now that some component may be updated but updating a component comport test compatibility with all the others,
and in this case i do not think will give perceptible advantages,
...in some cases already tested may be more safe then "fully updated"
