Sub_title: MIght just be due to limitations of computer or even installer (me). Don't know!

This one -->http://www.openplatformeducation.org/gimp-2.6.3-i486.pet

is one that I put together using some tested packages of Gimp (not gimp-photo) but with some frequently requested plugins and all of the dependencies - It is already in the installer menu on the web desktop

looks promising though & I will add it to the web desktop as well since it seems to be testing out ok.

I went to the desktop and downloaded Gimp-Photo but I couldn't get it installed. I think the problem might be its size but I am not really sure. It just started the install but seemed unable to complete it.

This isn't a huge deal for me because I don't do any photo editing and already have GIMP on my unbuntu computer. Still, it would have been nice to get a photoshop-like application on this computer as the person who uses it likes photoshop quite a bit and it won't run correctly through Wine.

I guess I will just have to keep an eye on GIMP for puppy, looking for updates and maybe try again another time.

Off-topic, but i needed: several minutes ago i have sent the answer onto the following address: "Wally", and now i'll place perhaps needful lines, which i created earlier, over here.

Script for the installation of -=Gimp-2.6.3=- in the -=Linux Puppy-4.30=- operating system.
Note: perhaps it can be useful in another versions of -=Linux Puppy=-.

  • I don't know why laboratories are named a hospitals.
  • The alive personage is like a tea bag with granules of unknown density inside, at that one the packet was made of organic material and was placed in the evaporated liquid or liquid.
