After using GIMP, I get this folder gegl-0.0 left in my documents. How can I get rid of this or move it? It really bugs me. Thanks.

Using Windows 7, btw.

LOL :lol: Funny misunderstanding of the day! :D

I think Photocomix meant, do you still use gimp, as in do you still have it installed and plan it to still use it?

The weird thing is, since version 2.6.7 of gimp the gegl folder is placed in "my document". Before that it was in the document and setting folder somewhere. Why I don't know, but if you plan to keep using gimp and not uninstall it then there's nothing you can do. The gegl folder needs to be there.

It bothers me also but, I realize that it is a needed folder. What you can do is right click on the folder and select properties and check-mark the option named *hidden* and select Apply.

This will hide the folder, yet not affect it's functionality.

Yes, hiding it works well enough, thanks for the tip.
I just have to also turn off viewing hidden folders, but thats fine.

Actually, i just installed GIMP a day or two ago, so yes, I'm still using it. :^)

It would be nice if it was in a different location, but oh well.

O well i suppose is just question of personal preference, on my PC i have no any hidden file (if i have to hide something i know better places then my HD )..just system files are displayed with a different color to avoid accidents

Are you asking why this particular folder may irritate someone? I suppose it is because it is placed in a personal folder named Documents.

This is a folder that I use for personal *documents*. I don't like having a folder there named gegl that I have to avoid clicking on every time I open my personal folder.

While I am scanning through documents that actually mean something to me, I also have to scan over that same old folder every time I navigate there. That is why it is irritating to me.

I may guess now your worry
, but don't worry you may click on it, you may inspect the content, browse inside,...till you do not delete ,edit or rename the file there is no any risk,


Windows give the stupid idea that just watch system or program files is dangerous..no any danger to see the file or open the folder, only danger may be try to improperly RUN or EDIT the files
(and even in that case the computer will not explode :D )

The folder also shows up in Portable Gimp......On older versions it was reported as an error, and as I remember recompiled and it went away....It is now located deep within the PortableGimp Folder......

But...big deal...I only knew it was there when it was pointed out...

The folder is also under C:/user....where both 2.68 and 2.7 Gimp folders are located.....

well if make that invisible make feel better is easy to do it and already explained

To move that Gegl folder somewhere else will be needed to hack the gimp code and recompile, so i think is not the case

How did you display system files in a different colour?

Xp seems make it automatically system files have the name in blue when seen from search or the explorer
(obvious first you need to allow yourself to see system and hidden files, again is a option in search )

System folder also look different , as faded ,(but not that gegl folder )

I'm using Win 7. The system files show up faded but it's hard to tell some times.

The gegl folder is in Libararies>Documents. It doesn't bother me, now that I know what it is.

Hi!

Is there a possibility to change the settings, where GIMP is saving the "gegl-0.0"-folder?

Greetings,
Leon B.

P.S.: By the way, can someone tell me what is the sense of the "gegl-0.0"-folder?

So you wanted to say that there is no possibility to change that for "normal" people like me.
What a pity.

This post went unanswered for over a month, so I have pulled it. How disappointing.
