Install Gimp on new machine (SOLVED)

Post#1 by RJKD » 22 Nov 2017, 04:49


I have a new machine (as yet still in the box), which versions of Gimp and G'MIC should I install? I'm leaving my current Gimp on my old machine and don't want to transfer it to my new machine. rich2005 mentioned a version of Gimp with the MyPaint engine, I'm particularly interested in this, could I get this version?
Running Win 10, 32 bit on new machine.
Thankyou in advance for your help.

Why..why..32 bit?

The mypaint brush engine is incorporated into Gimp 2.9 Both the official gimp.org Gimp 2.9.6 and the Partha version are 64 bit.

There is a bundled 64 + 32 bit separate versions by samj http://samjcreations.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/ similar to the gimp.org it opens with a console.

Tried it out in a Win7 VM and the mypaint brush engine is there but not the brushes. This was customary since in linux the brushes are not usually in the Gimp path but are separate.

Easy enough to incorporate but you need to set the path yourself much the same as the latest gmic.

example:

If anyone wants just the 32 bit with mypaint brushes, I can zip the files, and put on file sharing. Just ask.

If you have a 64 bit installation, recommend using Partha's Gimp 2.9.6
