  3. Not really a bug, but when I looked for the exposure-blend plugin I had to open an image first. Since this plugin doesn't use the open image but instead asks which three images to open it seems it would be better back at it's old location

  4. When i run, i get the message 'Failede to run Gimphoto' and then it's over ... (i installed Gimpad)

  5. lennart,
    first you must install GimPhoto 1.4.3 and then install GimPad 1.1, after that run GimPad 1.1.

  6. GimPad doesn't work :(
    I installed GimPhoto 1.4.3 and then GimPad 1.1. I can run directly GimPhoto and it behaves and looks like GIMP. But when I run GimPad instead (to get the windows hosted on a large main window like in Photoshop) a large empty window of GimPad appears and it launches GimPhoto. But the GimPhoto windows don't get hosted on the GimPad one, they still stay separate as without GimPad.
    The GimPad window doesn't seem to offer any features, there are only two small rolldown menus to change theme and with help (not much helpful though). Furthermore I can't exit GimPad so I have to kill it.
    I already have GIMP 2.2 installed and it looks as usual after the installation of your two programs, may it be that they somehow collide with normal GIMP? Is it necessary to uninstall GIMP? I really don't know what is wrong.

    And I have also a question concerning GimPhoto: is it compatible with all stuff (brushes, textures, plugins, whatever...) available for GIMP and does it have all its functions? I wouldn't like to replace GIMP with something not so well supported just to have a more Photoshop-like interface, which as you see I can't get working anyway...

  7. Don't run GimPhoto, just run GimPad, GimPad will automatically run GimPhoto and when GimPhoto loading, wait until it's completely loading, don't swicth to other apps when GimPad loading GimPhoto.

    there is possibility Gimp 2.2 is conflict with GimPhoto, try to install using different user.

    GimPhoto is 100% compatible with GIMP.

    GimPhoto only tested with Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

  8. I launch GimPad 1.1 and open a gimp xcf file using the Gimphoto toolbar, yet the file opens outside Gimpad!?!?! Gimpad is literally a huge blank window on my desktop at this point instead of a place holder for image files.

    I am working under Windows XP, using GimPhoto 1.4.3.

  9. sosage,
    GimPad 1.1 is external app that try to host all GimPhoto window, there is many possibilities that can make this fail, these some thing that make the trouble:
    - Run GimPad 1.1 (don't run GimPhoto)
    - Wait until GimPad and GimPhoto loading process finished (don't switch to other window in the loading process)
    - Don't use "Transients Window" feature that usually used to bring "Always on Top" in GimPhoto.
    - Don't run GimPhoto with other version of GIMP (because GimPhoto still use the same preferences folder used by GIMP), after uninstall GIMP also do manually clean old GIMP preferences under Document and Settings before install GimPhoto.
    - There is possibility when other software that prevents GimPad to become parent of GimPhoto, usually this program change how window normally act under Windows.

  10. Cannot quit GimPad application. Need to end task in Task Manager.

  11. anonymous,
    sorry, but are you using Vista? GimPad is not compatible with Vista, GimPad only tested and supported for Windows 2000 and XP, because i don't have Vista.

  12. Nope, XP. Tried it on two XP machines actually. Same thing happens on both.

    may be you close it using [X] button at title bar, try close it using menu from GimPhoto or from GimPad. Please be specific with you step to close GimPad maybe there is a bug and i will try to fix it. Thanks.

  14. Hey cool guy. Thanks for this program. Well, Gimphoto gets very slow and crashes when i use it for a long time. What is causing that? PLEASE HELP. Maybe its just my computer but it doesnt happen with anything else.

    ReplyDelete
  15. anonymous,
    do you use GimPhoto with GimPad or only GimPhoto? if you use with GimPad then try to use it without GimPad, maybe the bugs is in GimPad.

    but if you use only GimPhoto then maybe the bugs is from GIMP 2.4.3 that used by GimPhoto 1.4.3 then wait the next version of GimPhoto 1.4.5 that based on more stable GIMP 2.4.5.

  16. Hi,

    This is starting to look fantastic!

    Running WinXP and I also encounter a problem in that I can not close GimpPad. The only way I can close it is to kill the process in taskmanager.

    Keep going as this is shaping up to be a killer app.

    ReplyDelete
  17. anonymous,
    please explain step by step what do you do before encounter a problem, i hope i can fix it.

    maybe when you close GimPhoto try using menu File > Exit.

  18. Thanks for the great app,

    I installed it on my Xubuntu box and it worked ok for a day but then the next day when I wanted to open a jpg I got this error

    Plug-in crashed: "jpeg"
    (/usr/local/gimphoto/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/jpeg)

    The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.

    no matter how many open or close it I get the same error each time (same for gifs) I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but no luck.
    Any ideas?

    Also I was wondering if there is Gimpad for linux yet?

    thanks again

    ReplyDelete
  19. samten sherab,
    what Xubuntu version do you use? is GIMP still exist in your system? is your GIMP running well? i think the problem is GimPhoto is accessing GIMP plugins which not compatible with GimPhoto (maybe your GIMP is version 2.4.5 and GimPhoto is based on GIMP version 2.4.3)

    this can be happen because GimPhoto is still using the same user preferences folder with GIMP (browse your home folder, from Nautilus enable "Show Hidden File" then it will be show folder .gimp-2.4) Please try to rename it to other name or delete it, then try to run GimPhoto again.

    i everyday using GimPhoto for Linux under Linux Mint Daryna (without GIMP) and also under Ubuntu Hardy Heron (with GIMP) without trouble.

    GimPad is using specific Win32 API tricks to grab all GimPhoto windows and manage it as single user interface, for Linux i must develop it from scratch and i don't if it possible or not.

  20. It seams that the layers, chanels, paths etc-window is not captured in mdi. please fix :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anonymous,
    are you already read the GimPad help file? for now GimPad only can detect 2 panel (toolbox and tool options panel), this because GimPad is external app from GimPhoto so every second GimPad is checking those 2 panel position and manage it to ensure it's always on top.

    Every additional panel will be burden the GimPad for additional checking code then it will result slower GimPhoto performance.

    For next GimPad version, i consider to add 1 additional custom panel, maybe... :)

  23. BackDoor.Generic10.KJH is found in the current release of GimPhoto while using the latest AVG AntiVirus Free (program version: 8.0.169; virus database version: 270.7.3/1691). Could you possibly contact with the AVG Developers and make some explanations? Thx in advance ;-)

    i'm sorry but i only can responsible for files at Google Code or Tuxfamily, other than that maybe you can contact site admin about the problems, thanks.

    i use Avast and GimPhoto installer at Google Code is free from virus.

  25. @zenith: Avast seems to suck big time; it was my fav but after i installed bit defender i found more than 400 viruses at the pc i use at work (home i run only linux).

    ReplyDelete
  26. Dread Knight,
    Avast by default enable all module, try to enable only Standard Shield and Web Shield (from Avast Resident Scanner > Details...)

    Bit Defender is a very good if not the best av but it only free for on demand scanner and for real time scanner we must paid it.

    so i think for free real time av protection, Avast is good enough and the real competitor is Avira but it has disturbing popup banner.

    I keep getting a large number of errors when starting up GimPhoto. they are basically the same error just with different files. Heres an example of one of them

    "selection-to-path.exe - Entry Point Not Found"
    "The procedure entry point g_assertion_message_expr could not be located in the dynamic link library libglib-2.0-0.dll"

    also is it normal for GimPad to also embed running instances of Pidgin into it along with GimPhoto?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ok got it to work, I had it installed on a drive other than the C drive, I went and reinstalled it onto the C drive and its working now.

    How ever the whole Pidgin embedded into GimPad is still there and.. its a little annoying..

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sora Chan,
    i'm really sorry about the bugs but i never use Pidgin, under Windows i use Trillian. i think Pidgin also use GTK then GimPad maybe think Pidgin is also as a part of GimPhoto which also use GTK for Windows.

    Thank's for the info, controlling GTK applications under Windows is very complicated, if possible then i will try to fix it in the next release of GimPad.

  30. It won't run. :(

    The installer said it successfully installed GimPhoto, but it won't run. I get this error message:

    symbol lookup error: ./gimphoto: undefined symbol: g_once_init_enter_impl

    I did not uninstall GIMP first; my GIMP version is 2.2; I did rename ~/.gimp-2.2 to something else.

    Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  31. SmartAssProducts,
    GimPhoto is running well using Ubuntu 8.04 and Linux Mint 5.0, but if you use Ubuntu 7.10 then you need to install newer version of libgtk (i can run GimPhoto using Linux Mint 4.0 that based on Ubuntu 7.10).

    What Linux distro do you use? maybe there is dependencies problem with your GimPhoto installation because GIMP 2.2 is using older version of libraries files than version that needed by GimPhoto.

  32. Hi!!

    I have Ubuntu 8.04 64bit and I got the following error:

    "error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

    I tried the locate command, and I have this library installed, so i create symlink. Now the error is:
    error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

    64bit Class...

    Is there a plan to create a 64bit package??

    Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Is there any way you can fix the bug that deletes all the exif data when you use GimpPhoto to edit a photo? When you change the file type it also deletes the exif. This is important information and along with keywords needs to be saved in the process.

    Thanks, pam

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pam,
    actually GimPhoto should preserve exif data, when saving JPG try to check Advanced Options > Save Exif, maybe you disable it and you can also use exiftool to save your exif data before editing and put it back after editing.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Watttana,
    i'm really sorry but there is no plan for 64bit package, this because i don't have 64bit system and i have very limited resources to support another platform.

  36. Sorry, when you save a jpeg to a tif or any other extension the exif data is lost. I'll try the exiftool

    I was running into the problem where GimPad would not close and where the GimPhoto windows were not being captured by GimPad. Also the problem where GimPad would not close and I had to kill it from task manager.

    I had tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and it hadn't worked. I use to have Gimp 2.4.7 installed.

    I uninstalled GimPad and GimPhoto (in that order), renamed the c:\documents and settings\username\.gimp-2.4 folder, then reinstalled GimPhoto and GimPad (in that order).

    It now works properly. I believe it was some sort of conflict with the Gimp2.4 settings that were not removed during the uninstall.

  42. Latest stable GimPad and Gimphoto will not save locations of windows. I have "Save window locations on exit." checked and even did the "Save current window locations" button. It always resets them when I restart it all.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Anonymous,
    if you want to save window locations, do:
    1. run GimPhoto (not GimPad).
    2. save window location via Preferences.
    3. exit GimPhoto.
    4. run GimPad (not GimPhoto), i hope this works :)

    It sounded like that might work, but it didn't. :(
    When I run Gimpad I see the Gimphoto windows in the saved positions for a second, then they get moved back to default position.

    If I run Gimphoto by itself, the windows are still saved. So the culprit is Gimpad, I presume.

  45. Daemon,
    yes, for now GimPad still doesn't save windows location.

  46. Hello.
    Ek kian Thank you for Gimphoto!

    Not sure if it is a bug. Anyway due to this issue Gimphoto is almost not usable for me: after i follow installation instructions carefully, i launch gimphoto and see awful GUI font (screencapture: http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/2188/settingsvm4.png ). I cannot find a way to adjust (at least) it's size. Is that possible?

  47. SS-27,
    - run Terminal
    - type:
    sudo gedit /usr/local/gimphoto/share/gimp/2.0/themes/Default/gtkrc
    - sudo will ask admin/root password

    - after gtkrc file opened, change line:
    font_name = "Nimbus Sans L Condensed 10"

    - that line means GimPhoto is using font Nimbus Sans L Condensed with size 10.
    - change font type or size, save file then run GimPhoto

    i usually using font DejaVu Sans Condensed with size 9 (this font is good because all panel tabs text is visible)

    ReplyDelete
  48. zenith,

    thank you very much. I left Nimbus Sans L Condensed but with size 14. Sorry for 'awful' in my previous message - that was result of frustration...
    You know, i always use large fonts everywhere (usually i cannot work with fonts smaller than size 14).

    Take care.

  50. Anonymous,
    GimPhoto and GimPad can't live side by side with GIMP 2.4 (try to install GimPhoto and GimPad as different user under Windows to be able using GIMP with GimPhoto)

    this happen because GimPhoto using the same user preferences that also used by GIMP, so GIMP user preferences will ruin GimPhoto and GimPad (the most trouble is came from "Transient Windows" features at GIMP user preferences)

    You're hard work is greatly appreciated, I strive to get my friends who use stolen sotware to use what is legal and this is one more tool.

    But, Gimpad/Gimpshop is not stable at all. These bugs came up on both the initial install and then a clean install. Even when set in preferences, window positions don't stick, the palette window disappears when I try to adjust size of toolbar on left and the program won't quit either with X or through Exit. I have to end the process. Plus, my tablet's pen isn't pressure sensitive. hmph.

    The sooner GIMP gets away from the windowed interface the better. Why wasn't it fixed in GIMP 1.1?

    WinXP | HP Compaq tc4200 | 1.5G RAM

    ReplyDelete
  58. wavetraced,
    Thank's for kind words :)

    ahem...this is GimPhoto not Gimpshop :)

    maybe you ever install GIMP 2.4.x?
    there is user preferences folder that will exist even you already uninstall it, this the main cause that your Gimpad and GimPhoto NOT working ok.

    for your problems with GimPad/GimPhoto, there is 3 possibilities that cause the troubles:

    1. GimPhoto and GimPad CAN NOT be installed side-by-side with GIMP.

    2. There is old GIMP preferences that still exists on your computer (even uninstall GIMP will not remove this preferences) so we must remove it manually, follow this instructions:
    for 2K/XP users
    - please check under C:\Documents and Settings\(Your_User_Name)\
    - DELETE or RENAME folder .gimp-2.4 or .gimp-2.2
    for Vista users
    - please check it under C:\Users\(Your_User_Name)\
    - DELETE or RENAME folder .gimp-2.4 or .gimp-2.2
    (mostly error happened because of this)

    3. GimPad will into much trouble if "Transients Windows" feature is ON (this a "Always on Top" feature that usually used by GIMP), so DISABLED it because GimPad that will take care "Always on Top feature".

    Some more information about your problems:

    - Gimpad still can't saving windows position (this will fixed at GimPad next version 1.2)

    - Your tablet isn't pressure sensitive because GIMP 2.4.3 error and GimPhoto 1.4.3 based on this version of GIMP (this will fixed at GimPhoto next version 1.4.5 using GIMP 2.4.5)

    - GIMP will always using windowed interface because GIMP depend on GTK+ that until now still NOT supporting MDI windowing interface. This way i create GimPad by myself to bring MDI like interface at GimPhoto.

  60. This is a great package.

    BUT Gimpad fails to start for a limited user (works fine on the admin account), giving an error each time "gimpad.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." and then sends an error message

    ALSO BUT - GimPhoto is really good, but I have to use a mouse. My Grapphire 4 tablet is jerky and unresponsive.

    GimPhoto 1.4.3 still has a problem with tablet that because it based on GIMP 2.4.3 that has bugs with tablet support, just wait for GimPhoto next version that based on GIMP 2.4.5 which has better tablet support.

    GimPad is using extensively Win32 window management API, maybe there are functions that used by GimPad that require admin level user.

    You can try to using GimPhoto Portable with GimPad Portable, maybe it can be used with limited user account, just follow this link:

  64. Thanks thanks so much for all the hard work you put into things like this! I highly appreciate it. My family doesn't have a lot of money so i cant afford the most high tech computers or super expensive software like most people so things like this are a blessing.

    I only have one problem, when I start it up everythings fine until its past the loading screen then the tool window pops up. Its all white and then it crashes i get the "GimPhoto has encountered a problem and needs to close ect." window. Have had Gimpshop on my comp both the original and upgraded. I have had Gimp 2.6 although it has never worked. I have purged my computer of these files though and any they left behind. BUT right before i found this I downloaded gimp 2.6 although it still didnt work so i uninstalled it, and i went back to "C:\Program files" but nothing was there. So i assumed its was all gone. I have a Windows XP professional 2002 SP3 model. With Very little Memory. -_-'

    please help me I really want to use this program.

    Thanks for your kind words :)

    do you use GimPhoto with GimPad? or you only use GimPhoto?
    There is many possiblities that cause the problem:
    GimPad is need to be use with admin login, it can't be run with user login.
    GimPad is NOT compatible with GIMP setting called "Transient Windows" that usually used to make toolbox always on top (delete all GIMP 2.4 old settings - even you already uninstall GIMP, the settings is still there - you need to delete it manually)

    for easier solution, try using GimPhoto Portable.

  67. Gimphoto won't install on 64bit Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty ... at least not with a .deb package installer. That's bad for anyone who's not used to working with a terminal.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I was finally able to install the standard Linux GimPhoto Package with the MD5 checksum ... but can't work with *ANY* images !!! Such a shame, it all started out so promising.

    First I uninstalled the Gimp from my system ... never even used it. Then I checked in the terminal, to make sure that the setup message was okay ... and it was. Went ahead and used the right click option to view the setup file properties and "enabled as application" per your instructions. No problem there either !!! Double-clicken on the setup file ... setup went perfect. Opened up the GimPhoto programm from within Nautilus, and that too worked perfectly. I was very impressed by what I saw ... made adjustments in the preferences section. Got finished, saved everything, and just to be safe ... closed the programm.

    I then re-opened GimPhoto, this worked very nicely. Tools & Windows were where I wanted them. However, when I tried to work with images ... NOTHING would open !!! I tried .gif images, .bmp images, .jpg images, and .png images. I received the same error for every single image - even though some of them could be viewed in the preview window !!! Message was:

    "File blah blah blah failed to open ... unknown file type"

    Also, none of my images would show up at all in order to be selected, unless I used the option for viewing all file types. If I used the option for all images ... NONE of the images would show. Is it possible that this has something to do with the fact that I'm using 64bit Ubuntu as opposed to the 32bit Version? Can you fix this problem? Feel free to email me directly, here:

    siegfried -AT- niederrad -DOT- net

    I would love to be able to use this software !!!

  69. siegfried,
    sorry because i don't have 64bit system then i can't create installer for 64bit system.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Wouldn't you be able to create a 64bit installer if you installed a separate version of 64bit Ubuntu 9.04 on your computer? It's free, all you'd have to do is to download the iso from the ubuntu website.

    There's also a "force" command that can be utilized in order to force the installation of 32bit linux/ubuntu software to work on a 64bit system. However, your instructions don't cover this either ... or at least that won't work ... ???

    From a business sense, would it not be a smart thing, to enable GimPhoto to work on 64bit systems since everything is already being ported to 64bit since several years? (Linux Debian, WinXP, WinVista, etc.)

    ReplyDelete
  71. siegfried,
    is Ubuntu 64bit can run on AthlonXP 1.8? or can we run it using VMware or Virtualbox?

    Linux is new development environment for me, even create Debian package (deb) i still can't do it :( sorry.

    actually i would be very happy if i can also provide 64bit package installer but my hardware and my knowledge for now is limited to 32bit system.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Sorry, no, Ubuntu 64bit will not run on an Athlon XP1800+ System because that particular AMD processor (CPU) is still a 32bit version. I think the 64bit AMD processors didn't start until the XP3000+ came out (could be wrong though). But even those processors have been around for the past 4 years or so.

    As far as VMware / Virtualbox is concerned, I don't know anything about those things. What's weird is the fact that 32bit software should work on a 64bit processor/ubuntu system since 64bit is supposed to be *BACKWARD* compatible. But when I tried to install GimPhoto with the ..... sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i ..... option the software would not work, even though the installation itself completed without a problem. If we could just figure out how to make that installation work perfectly on a 64bit system, that would already be a tremendous help since people could then use GimPhoto with 64bit Ubuntu.

    I'll have to play around with it some more. Perhaps it was a mistake to *FIRST* remove Gimp altogether. That's what I did, before installing GimPhoto ....

  73. INSTALLING . GIMPHOTO . ON . 64 BIT . UBUNTU

    Okay, I'm running GimPhoto on my 64bit Ubuntu 9.04 as of today. In order to get it to run, you have to use the force command, like this:

    sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i /media/Downloads/GimPhoto/gimphoto_1.4.3_i386.deb

    The correct path/location is critical. I always download everything into a "Downloads" folder. Then I create a folder for the app, followed by moving the app. to that folder. Keep this in mind for your own installation ... your path has to be 100% correct.

    NOTICE: I did *NOT* uninstall or remove any Gimp Version 2.6 files at all. I can actually use both, GimPhoto as well as Gimp 2.6 separately and both of them open up with my settings intact.

    SADLY: GimPhoto is not for me, as I can't really tell the difference between GimPhoto and the Gimp Version 2.6 since I still end up with separate windows, one for each open image. What I need is a programm like Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw, etc. In other words, a programm that opens once ... in full screen mode if desired ... followed by containing all open images within that one single main window. GimPhoto runs perfectly on my 64bit Ubuntu now, but I honestly can't really tell the difference between the two since their look and feel is so very much alike. GimPhoto appears to look a little bit cleaner ???

    And yes, I did follow the instructions which ask to ignore the file in the bin folder, or rather, requesting the use of the installed file at this location instead:

    /usr/local/gimphoto/gimphoto.sh

    I've also played around with JPHOTOBRUSHPRO (http://www.jphotobrushpro.com/) which does exactly what I need for an image editor to do. But sadly the development appears to have been discontinued as of 2004. Couldn't get a response from the developer either. It's pretty neat to check out though, all besed on 100% pure Java. Bummer, I hope that someone comes up with a SINGLE WINDOW application for Linux soon, because having Windows/Images all over the place all of the time, especially when working with 10+ images at the same time, ist just plain maddening !!! Have a great Weekend.

  74. Siegfried,
    Thanks for your info about installing GimPhoto for Linux under 64bit system, i will include it on the GimPhoto for Linux install instructions.

    for single unified interface for GimPhoto under Liinux, you can try using XNest, maybe not perfect but as for temporary solution, it's ok :)

    for using XNest with GIMP or GimPhoto, follow this link:

  79. Hi again.

    Well, for all of those looking for the "perfect" Gimp Windowed integration solution, this blog from one of the main Gimp Developers may prove to be interesting. I always figured that it was just a matter of time, just a few more months now.

    https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=28919981&postID=2372750348813464628&page=1

    afaik the GIMP single window implementation was not MDI style like Photoshop but it more toward TAB style like browser such as Firefox or Chrome. I think it not as flexible as MDI windowing style.

    Hi, thanks for such a good piece of software (I like the Gimp but sometimes it gets on my nerves...) I have a little problem with GimPad though.

    I installed (in this order, after uninstalling Gimp) GimPhoto 1.4.3 and GimPad 1.1 on WIN XP SP2

    Unprivileged users cannot run GimPad, program ends unexpectedly.
    However, GimPhoto runs fine for the same user and Admin can run both.

    Anyone else has found a solution to this?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Derek Stanley,
    actually if your camera support TWAIN32 or your camera storage can be auto detected as removable drive, then it will be recognized by GimPhoto.

    for printing problem, maybe you can be more specific about your OS and what error message do you got?

    ReplyDelete
  86. castawaybcn,
    Thank's for your kind words :) for "sometimes it gets on my nerves..." i know what you mean, because i also experience it, even that is the main reason why i develop GimPhoto :)

    yes GimPad need admin privilege because GimPad need specific Win32 API that can take over control for be able to manage other apps windows (GimPhoto windows)

    but you can use Steel Run As (free), get it from:
    http://www.steelsonic.com/steelrunas.htm

    with it we can run specific software as admin user but also hide admin password from users.

  87. This has probably already been reported but I really can't stress enough how I would like my tools and layers dialogs to always be on top while working on an image. It is inconvenient to have to constantly alt-tab or click the tab in the taskbar in order to access them.

    ReplyDelete
  88. pxlspy01,
    i assume you using Windows and only use GimPhoto but not using GimPad. You can try to use GimPad, then your tools and layers dialogs will always on top.

  89. I installed gimphoto...installed from deb package, worked fine...installed where it said it would/where i expected it would....when i try to open a jpg, png, gif....anything besides a .xcf.....i get a plug-in error..unable to open image....

    i also have gimp 2.6.7 and gimp 2.7 installed and everything works fine....some how i dont think that gimphoto(2.4) is looking in other gimp folders because it created its own .gimp-2.4 folder in my home folder..

    any ideas whats happening here....im running ubuntu 9.04

    ReplyDelete
  90. David,
    try to run GimPhoto from gimphoto.sh rather from /bin/gimphoto, maybe it happened because ubuntu 9.04 using newer shared libraries that used by 2.6 but not compatible with 2.4.

    please read installation instructions more carefully again, specially at section about deleting old gimp 2.4 preferences at /documents and settings/users folder even if you already uninstall gimp. (gimphoto will use that old preferences and that preferences usually not compatible with gimpad)

  98. I was using GimPhoto on 32 bit XP and everything was working, but now I got a new computer with 64 bit Windows 7 and I'm having problems.

    I mainly use this program for the "save for web" feature. Now when I go to open an image, the program will crash (not responding) after I open a folder with lots of images in it (about 500 images). If I leave the computer for about 5 minutes it will finally load, but then after doing anything like trying to save for web it will crash for another 5 minutes.

    I have 4 gig RAM, Windows 7 64 bit.

  118. Hi,

    I am running Fedora 15b with GNOME 3. I want to install GimPhoto, since GIMP itself is totally alien to me, I've always been used to Photoshop.

    Anyway, I downloaded the "All Linux Distro" version, enabled the "run as application" checkbox... and nothing happens. I doubleclick - nothing. I right-click + Open - nothing. I even tried to run it with another application (Software Install and also Archive Manager), but still nothing happens.

    I really wish I could use GimPhoto, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to install it.

    Any change this could end up in a repository we could use with YAM? (respectively, a deb repository we could use with aptitude...)

    Thanks!

  156. Wijnand,
    do you install 64bit version? if you using Ubuntu 14.04 then try install using 32bit version because since Ubuntu 13.10 is multi-architecture... no need anymore to install additional 32 bit library.

  157. I have installed the 64bit, but also tried the 32bit. Both don't work, by the way: I use Linux Mint.

  158. Where is the location of file "libart_lgpl_2.so.2" ? Is already included on PATH ?
    "These might be installed in /usr/lib32 on your machine. You'll need to add these directories to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable"

    bash$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

  159. I get this error now: error while loading shared libraries: libart_lgpl_2.so.2: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

    it has to do with x64 VS x32, but is this saying I have a x64 libart_lgpl_2.so.2 that is x64 or the program or...?

  160. it worked Zenith.. this reaction:

    Wijnand,
    That's error message mean that Gimphoto is 32 bit app that try to use libart_lgpl_2.so.2 64 bit version.
    If you already success installed ia-32libs then libart_lgpl_2.so.2 32 bit is located at folder /usr/lib32.
    STEP TO FIX:
    1. Check file libart_lgpl_2.so.2 is exist at usr/lib32
    2. ADD LIBRARY PATH TO /usr/lib32 using this command:
    bash$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    Installing 32bit app. Wrong ELF Class: ELFCLASS64

  161. If Gimphoto 24.1 window is NOT maximized, but I would like to maximize the window of a picture within Gimphoto, this maximized picture window doesn't fit in the available size of the Gimphoto/Gimpad window.

  162. If Gimphoto 24.1 gets minimized, also the tool windows should disappear (without a following klick somewhere).

  163. I had the same problem as Wijnand, hmmm I'm somewhat confused why gimphoto still want to use the 32 bit version of the library when I've downloaded the 64 bit deb package ?

  164. Anonymous,
    i only compile Gimphoto 32 bit version and made 32 bit installer (because i don't have 64 bit system)
    the 64 bit version is made by other Gimphoto users, i don't know if he re-compile it for 64 bit or only re-wrap my 32 bit version to 64 bit installer, i predict it was the later so Gimphoto 64 bit installer still use 32 bit version of library :)
