Re: [Gimp-user] Poor install and uninstall

Like Berlusconi's claims: a lot of words without substance or proof.
Which misplaced folder?
Which "numerous files"?
BTW, the files under .gimp-2.6 are here and remain here for a very
good reason.

To make that more clear: The .gimp-2.6 folder keeps per-user settings.
When you uninstall the program, you only uninstall the program files,
not your personal settings folder, which might include brushes,
patterns, scripts, etc. It would be _very_ bad form to remove this when
uninstalling GIMP.

Would you prefer that it "uninstalled" the images you created in GIMP
as well?

I was very unimpressed by this software package. I needed some image
editing capabilities under Windows and this seemed like a good choice.
However when I installed the package it spewed files into various
misplaced folders. I subsequently uninstalled only to find that
despite claiming success at this it left numerous files on my system.
Even though it is free sofctware there is still no excuse for this
kind of sloppy coding.
