GimpShop Debian Installer Ver 2.2.11 Port Available

Created this a couple of weeks ago but forgot to mention it here. This is a debian package installer (.deb) for GimpShop Ver 2.2.11. I tried it on my system and it worked and I haven’t gotten any complaints so far… So I guess it works 😉 Let me know if you have some trouble with it.

Get it from: GIMPShop Debian Package Installer (Ver 2.2.11 Port) [Note: The package is not working at this time. Will fix it and update soon – Sur]

I am also in the process of updating the GimpShop installation guide (To install it from source) but you will have to wait for it a little bit longer…

  1. This package doesn’t seem to work with debian testing. Not sure if it’s supposed to or not, but I thought I’d mention it. It needs libgimpprint, which isn’t available in testing.

  2. Oh, Didn’t know that..
    Let me see if there’s a way around it… I can remove the libgimpprint from the required packages list but then you won’t be able to print from GIMP.

    Actually come to think of it, I *think* I disabled printing support when I compiled GIMP to create the package.. Do you think I should just disable printing and let everyone use it without being able to print?
