Ok, I was messing around with things and I managed to somehow break my gimp 2.8 installation... I tried to uninstall, recompile and install it again, it seems to compile & install ok but I keep getting this error when trying to run it:
gimp: error while loading shared libraries: libgimpwidgets-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Anyone know what's up with this...?
Ok, nvm, I figured it out... turns out all I had to do was sudo ldconfig.
That's what I love about linux - you keep learning new stuff all the time.
