I have Ubuntu 8.04 and I'm try to install your Gimphoto, I'm Following this manual but in the step 6 nothing happen on my PC, I already downloaded the 6 files (5 parts and Joint) I run the Joint script, this make the file that u mentioned on the manual but when I Run it ... nothing happen ... :( pls can u help me ??? what I miss ???

zenith,  20/8/08 11:00 AM  

anonymous,
check if you already save all files under your home folder so you have enough permissions to read/write/execute on that folder.

later, give execute properties to joint script, follow this steps: Run Nautilus > Click on file gimphoto-143-joint.sh > Right-click > from PopUp Menu Select "Properties" > Click Tab Permissions > Enable "execute..." permissions.

after that, Double-click on gimphoto-143-joint.sh to run it.

jace_bu 20/8/08 11:39 PM  

hi zenith. belated happy independence day.

what exactly would happen if i'm unable to uninstall Gimp (the one that comes bundled with Ubuntu 8.04) before I attempt to install Gimphoto? what risks am i taking?

thanks.

jace_bu 20/8/08 11:56 PM  

oh yeah. i tried double clicking the joint script, but all that happens is it opens in the gedit application. how can i run it?

zenith,  21/8/08 7:35 AM  

jace_bu,
GimPhoto can run with GIMP without a problem, the most worst thing that can be happen is only GimPhoto looks like GIMP because GimPhoto read GIMP user preferences folder :)

just follow instructions in this page carefully, specially in the part "If you have GIMP in your system".

for running joint-script, do:

check if you already save all files under your home folder so you have enough permissions to read/write/execute on that folder.

later, give execute properties to joint script, follow this steps: Run Nautilus > Click on file gimphoto-143-joint.sh > Right-click > from PopUp Menu Select "Properties" > Click Tab Permissions > Enable "execute..." permissions.

after that, Double-click on gimphoto-143-joint.sh to run it, if you use Nautilus don't forget to choose "Run" instead "Display".

jace_bu 21/8/08 10:19 PM  

i was able to run the script, and able to put the files together. however double clicking the set-up file that gets put together afterwards doesn't do anything. the file is on my desktop. i moved it to my main folder, which would be "jace001" right?

if i put it in my /home folder, it says "permission denied" when i go to properties of the folder, it says that i'm not the owner of the folder so i can't edit permissions. how do i edit it? i'm lost.

thanks!

zenith,  22/8/08 9:34 AM  

jace_bu,
if you login using "jace" then your home folder is located at /home/jace/
NOT /home/ because inside /home/ there is /home/john/, /home/sally, /home/joe, etc.

if you success run the joint-script then will appear new file with name: gimphoto-1.4.3_setup

Anonymous,  24/8/08 6:41 AM  

i followed your instructions but i cannot run gimphoto-1.4.3_setup
amy ideas????

zenith,  24/8/08 8:12 AM  

anonymous,
what linux distro do you use?
are you can run gimphoto-143-joint.sh? if you can run it and gimphoto-1.4.3_setup file appear in your folder, then try to run it, if it can't run then try to run it as root user.

Anonymous,  25/8/08 6:00 AM  

first of all thanks alot for all the effort you put making this programm :)

i am using ubuntu 64 bit hardy heron gnome desktop and i am not a very experienced user.

gimphoto-1.4.3_setup appears ,i double click on it but nothing happens.
all archives are in the folder which has the name i use to log in.

Anonymous,  25/8/08 6:02 AM  

i typed sudo -i in the terminal and then i tried to open it is that the correct way?

zenith,  25/8/08 8:12 AM  

anonymous,
try to type "sudo nautilus" and double-klik gimphoto-1.4.3_setup.

if still can't run, click gimphoto-1.4.3_setup, right-click, from popup select "Properties", from open dialog, click Tab "Permission", check "Execute..." or "Allow execute..", enable it to allow user to execute this file.

click OK and try to run it again.

jace_bu 25/8/08 9:19 AM  

using hardy heron too, like anonymous, and tried "sudo nautilus" and applying permissions - enable executing as program,then double clicking on the gimphoto-1.4.3_setup file, nothing happens however.

in properties, under the "open with" tab, it doesn't say what program to open with. should there be something there?

thanks for the help btw.

airtonix 25/8/08 12:48 PM  

Using ubuntu 8.04 32bit, I haven't uninstalled gimp yet.

I followed your instructions to merge the split archives into one, then running the gimphoto-1.4.3_setup file in term produces this error :

"application-specific initialization failed: bad end of central directory record"

I am then left at a % prompt.

zenith 25/8/08 5:17 PM  

jace_bu, airtonix,
it's look like your download is somewhat corrupted or not completed.

next month i will try to upload the installer as single file package to reduce download fail, i can't do it now because my internet bandwidth for this month already exceeded its limit :(

Anonymous,  25/8/08 5:42 PM  

still no luck :(
maybe reinstall it...anyway your project is very helpfull,thanks again.
i will try it in windows for the time being.

zenith 26/8/08 8:24 PM  

anonymous, jace_bu,
i'm really sorry for this much trouble, please try download it again. i updated the files and also give more detailed installation instruction.

please report back here about your installation progress, thanks for your support! (^__^)=b

airtonix 27/8/08 5:08 AM  

Ok install procedure was much more successful this time round.

However, I was under the impression you were providing an MDI for gimp.

Can you please provide some clues as to how I enable this feature, or was I mistaken in this assumption?

airtonix 27/8/08 5:10 AM  

One more thing to note is that the LXSplit program you suggest to compile doesn't require the configure step you mention.

It is a pity that standard cat command on you system does not produce your initially desired results, as it would make distribution of your project easier.

zenith,  27/8/08 8:51 AM  

airtonix,
thanks for your info about LXSplit, i already fix the compilation step :)

you already success install GimPhoto? and be able to run it?

i'm sorry for your MDI expectation but GimPhoto for Windows can do MDI with GimPad help but for now GimPad still not available under Linux :(

windowing system is very different under Windows and Linux, so GimPad must be programmed from scratch for adapt to Linux.

please don't expect it to soon because Linux is new development environment to me, even for this release i spent 8 months, i don't know when i can release GimPad for Linux, so many thing i must learn first, specially GTK+

afaik, GTK+ can't do MDI also the dev.team seems don't like MDI things, maybe KDE can do it but i prefer C rather than C++, so just wish me luck (^p^) hehehe...

paulx,  24/9/08 12:47 PM  

Hi
I completely removed gimp and installed succesfully gimphoto in Ubuntu. When I run the program I still get the seperated screens instaed of one window.

any suggestions ?

dimi 28/9/08 12:18 AM  

Hello,

I'd like to thank you sincerely for all you've done to develop it and help us...

I'm facing a bit of a problem when running the script (having installed it in ubuntu 8.04 64bit)

more specifically it complains about the library

/usr/local/gimphoto/bin/gimphoto: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
i've cheched the synaptic manager and can't seem to find this particular version, although others are installed in my system. Do you have any advice?

Warm regards
dimi

zenith 29/9/08 8:36 PM  

paulx,
i'm sorry but for integrated screen you need to use GimPad and for now GimPad is only available for Windows. please read my comment above your comment for detailed info about MDI under Linux.

dimi,
i only tested GimPhoto using Ubuntu 8.04 32bit and it run ok, all files and libraries that needed by GimPhoto is already supplied within GimPhoto for Linux installer.

i never using 64bit system so i don't understand what the difference between 32bit and 64bit system, maybe you got library compatibility problems.

berita-linux 4/10/08 9:23 AM  

Aku bangga padamu, hai orang Indonesia!
You light the torch for frustated gimp users like me!

Red Wine 4/10/08 10:04 AM  

Installed succesfuly on Linux Mint 5 Ellysa, running side by side with Gimp 2.4.5 and GimpShop (a gimp layout like photoshop's one).

Though when i run :
sudo /usr/local/gimphoto/gimphoto.sh

I got :

Gtk-WARNING **: gimp-image-set-unit: missing action gimp-image-set-unit

error, but I have been tried Gimphoto smoothly.

Terima kasih!Thank You!

zenith 10/10/08 10:24 AM  

Heath,
try to run /usr/local/gimphoto/gimphoto.sh

but if it still error then please inform more detailed about what PCLinuxOS version do you use? what GIMP version that come default with your Linux?

GimPhoto is compatible with GIMP 2.4.5. If your GIMP version is older then GIMP 2.4.5 then you will need all new GIMP file library dependencies, from your error code i think you have problems with libtiff, python and lcms library, please check it again.

Anonymous,
this happen because you need to newer libgtk version to run GimPhoto. GimPhoto need environment just like GIMP 2.4.5, so if you can run GIMP 2.4.5 under your Linux then GimPhoto can run too.

I can run GimPhoto under Ubuntu 8.04 and Linux Mint 5.0 without installing additional files or library.

for Ubuntu 7.10 or Linux Mint 4.0, i need to install newer libgtk before can run GimPhoto. But be careful because installing libgtk without prefix will ruin your Linux installation.

2. copy file icon gimp png ke:
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/
3. klik menu > System > Preferences > Main Menu
4. dobel-klik menu GimPhoto 1.4.3
5. akan muncul menu seperti di tutorial http://www.gimphoto.com/2008/11/ubuntu-applications-menu-for-gimphoto.html
perhatikan langkah tutorial no.3 dan ada tulisan di gambar "click here to change icon".
6. klik di gambar icon "spt per mobil" maka akan muncul banyak pilihan icon, salah satunya adalah icon gimp png yg di-copy di langkah no.2
7, klik ok maka icon menu akan berubah menjadi icon yang telah dipilih.

Just some feedback on install.

Installed on Arch Linux. Installed with no problems. When opened from gimphoto/bin/gimphoto it opened as expected but would not open any file types (jpg,png,etc) and no file types showed up in the 'Select File Type' in File>Open except for "Automatically Detected" and "Gimp XCF Image".

Then tried opening from gimphoto/gimphoto.sh. It opened perfectly and I could open files with no problem and the full list of file types was listed in the 'Select File Type' option.

Also, for what it's worth, the running program does not show up in my application panel at the bottom of my screen. But this could well be a kde4 problem and not yours.

Appreciate your good work.

I posted about a "problem" in ubuntu Intrepid.I found the direct icon with some help ^_^U it seems to work fine. Still it didn't asked for password O_o it may be 'cause my set preferences >.> I better check. By the way it's great that you offer this software. It's a great idea. Tanks.

SS-27,  6/1/09 5:05 AM  

zenith,

please tell where i can read and learn to compile applications from source into binary package which runs on any Linux, just like you do with lxsplit.

zenith 6/1/09 9:40 AM  

SS-27,
- for compile apps from source into binary, try search good tutorial via Google, like "compile vlc 0.9.2 for ubuntu 8.10"
- after you successful compile it then try all the program features.
- create package installer using installjammer (get it from http://www.installjammer.com)
- package installer that created using installjammer will compatible with any Linux.

SS-27,  6/1/09 9:52 PM  

zenith,
thank you!

andyhep,  12/3/09 6:50 AM  

Folks,

There's been some discussion here, and on the Ubuntu forums, about creating a .deb package for Ubuntu (and other Debian-based distros).

You can actually do this yourself, if you have the "checkinstall" package installed. Just make sure you are root, and in the same directory as the setup executable. Then type the following commands:

echo "Free Photoshop alternative for photo and image editor" > description-pak

checkinstall -Dy --pkgname gimphoto --pkgversion 1.4.3 ./gimphoto-1.4.3_setup --mode silent

It will create a .deb package file for you, and install it in the package database. You can then uninstall any time using the normal deb package management tools.

Hope this helps.

andyhep.

zenith 14/3/09 5:09 PM  

andyhep,
Thank's for your suggestions.

I already tried following your steps but .deb package that produced is only 2Mb and that far from original GimPhoto installer size that around 20Mb, why this happen? is this steps will wrap gimphoto installer with .deb format?

andyhep,  19/3/09 4:20 AM  

Hi zenith,

Actually, I think what checkinstall does is run the installer, track the files as they are installed, and then bundle all these files into a .deb file.

It seems not to be working properly for you - 2Mb is definitely too small - the .deb package should be around 16.8Mb.

Not to worry - you can download the one I created from this link.

Let me know if it works for you.

andyhep.

zenith 19/3/09 10:14 PM  

andyhep,
Thank you very much for gimphoto deb installer!

i will try your installer, if it works ok then i will upload it to googlecode and give you credit for creating it.

i already tested your deb package and it works ok!

Hey zenith,

Super - glad it works for you! :-)

Take it easy,

Anonymous,  25/3/09 11:49 AM  

Thanks for your effort but maybe you could put a big bold text warning at the top of this page that explains that this program does not provide MDI. It could be that I'm just dump and missed it anywhere on your site, otherwise it should definitively be noted IMHO.

I completely purged my GIMP and preferences just to install another older version of GIMP. I have not looked at your program much beyond it's lack of MDI since that is the only thing I don't like about GIMP. I'm sure there is value for some people, just not myself. Next time I boot into Windows, I'll give your program another shot.

salam kenal dari surabaya :)

terima kasih atas kesediaannya untuk menggunakan GimPhoto for Windows maupun for Linux.

untuk sekarang ini saya masih sibuk mempersiapkan GimPad 1.2 dan sedang berusaha untuk bisa membuat GimPhoto for Mac, nanti setelah itu selesai, baru saya akan membuat versi terbaru GimPhoto, jadi harap bersabar dulu ya :)

oya, mohon bantuannya untuk memperkenalkan GimPhoto ke teman-teman atau kerabat Anda mengenai GimPhoto, terima kasih.

Do we know how much it would cost to get an MDI developed for GTK so that GIMP could finally work with an MDI on GNU/Linux? Why don't you attempt to raise the money. The way you could do that is setup an form that allows users to submit an email, phone, and name along with a donation amount of how much they think they could afford to donate. Then if it appears that there may be enough money eventually to actually develop a MDI for GTK and GIMP then contact those people who said they would donate and let them know that the project was successful and to go ahead and send their contributions in.
