Sub_title: May be missing GIO backends and need to install GVFS
 

Hi Guys;
I have a full install of Lucid 5.2.8 on an IBM T22. I have downloaded and installed Gimp 2.6.10 and the Gimp 2.6.10 help files. I am unable to access the help files. I get a pop up that sez I may be missing GIO backends and need to install GVFS. Being a "newbie" and perhaps a little slow I have no clue what these are, where to get em or how to install them. Thanks. Ev

To get GVFS.
Open Puppy Package Manager.
Type gvfs in find search.
I get this result.
Not sure which one you need to install. I would try the first one.

Getting program help files to work in Puppy is a little iffy with some programs.
Where did you get Gimp and the help files?

On a frugal install, of p528 booted into RAM...no save file, after installing these:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/Gimp-2.6.10-Lucid.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/Gimp-Help-2.6.10-Lucid.pet,

help does work. Running from the commandline there are errors about python being missing, but nothing about gvfs or gio. I wonder if your initial download of gimp was corrupted?

Hi Guys;
When I first read your reply my first impulse was to boot myself in the posterior for not trying this "first"!
Once I did as you suggested and got a pop up from PPM find saying "Sorry: no matching package name" I remembered trying that already.
The Gimp pkgs. were originally downloaded from the server in Holland. (ftp.nluug.nl) I have had good luck with these downloads in the past.
If i wasn't confused at first I sure am headed in that direction now.
Thanx Ev

Did you try a re-download and reinstall?

In Puppy Package Manager you may need to do an update.
Select configure package manager button.
Select update now.

Sub_title: missing dependencies
 

hi guys;
I apologize for the delay thanking you for your help.
I have found that my "Gimp" file has some missing dependencies. Is there a good "Tute" on finding and installing them.
Thanks Sooo much in advance. Ev

I still am not sure what Gimp package you are trying to use.
What Puppy it was compiled for or even if compiled for Puppy?
I would delete what you have and use the ones that muggins suggested or get the Gimp packages that are in Lucid 528 Puppy Package Manager.
