i tried again to install the normal version, again with no luck, filters doesn't show up except a few somehow imported from older gimp (i believe from the portable version of 2.6.11 since i should have no other gimp in the main HD ) also prefererence were imported so several incompatible scripts were loaded.
I remember how to fix, and even how to adapt the fix to no English locale so i am not asking for help
also because i am more then happy with the portable version that i re-installed later on and that works as a charme
I tried the Normal version just for testing, and for testing from the point of view of a average user that may not like fiddle with enviroment variables and that may have a computer language different from English
I could not understand why many prefer the standard not portable version, for sure in case of problems the portable version solve everything while as far i may see has no any disadvantage.
(well will not import preferences and so brushes pattern and other add on from older gimp...but that is a advantage in case of API changes as from 2.6 to 2.7, since most of imported script and plugin will be incompatible and trow a lot of errors messages )
Again thank for the great work ,(and ...again the portable version works as a charme)
Good to hear from you!
Have you tried the latest version from my website (based on August 6th git)? It comes with an installer and you don't have to do anything with environmental variables. It is all done for you. In fact, you can uninstall it from the control panel if you don't like. If there are locale issues with the installer, let's talk about it. I would really like to hear what the issues are. Note that I have had people from all over the world install the versions I have been putting up.
For the portable version, I create a local .gimp-2.7 directory at the same level as the other directories where you install the portable version. So, any additions you want, you can make to that directory. When you want to install another portable version then save the current .gimp-2.7 somewhere. After installation, , run the portable version and then simply merge your saved .gimp-2.7 back with the newly created .Gimp-2.7. Does this make sense?
