The new gimp-print versions contain and experimental gimp2 printing plugin. The gimp-print configure script checks to see if the gimp2 is installed and if so compiles and installs the plugin. The only problem is that the plugin is installed into the gimp1.2 plugins directory. One way to fix this would to simply move the file in a manner such as
Code:
mv /usr/lib/gimp/1.2/plug-ins/print /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/print

Or you could use the updated gimp-print ebuild found here https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=61218 which includes a sed line to fix the install directory in the Makefile. Happy printing.

I tried the move command first. When I try to print it says the plugin crashed. Then I tried the ebuild but it is hard masked. I unmasked it and compiled and now gimp 2 does nothing when I try to print.

Any ideas?

Thx

Where the hell *is* the print dialog in GIMP??? I still can't find it after doing the following:
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/gimp/1.2/plug-ins/print /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/print

Haven't these guys ever heard of File --> Print ?

Thanks,

Try this. Modify the gimp-print ebuild by adding --with-gimp2 to this list of configuration options. It worked for me.
