Re: [Gimp-user] gimp-user-list Digest, Vol 52, Issue 24

I'm still wondering why
there is no way to start gimp
after an apparently successful installation.

Hi Jim,

from he textual description of a youtube video I found out while having
your same problem:

"GIMP has a very good at working with realistic paint brushes, but the
default installation lacks a very useful shortcut. If you have worked with
the Paint Brush or Pencil tool, you may have noticed that changing the size
of the brush isn't easy. You have to fiddle around with the Size/Scale
slider in the tool options on the left. This is a lot of guess work,
because it doesn't show a preview size when you are dragging the slider.
Have no fear, there is an easier way. Configure the mouse wheel to increase
and decrease the brush size when you scroll up or down.

-Click "Edit"?"Preferences"
-Under the "Input Devices" section, click "Input Controllers"
-In the "Active Controllers" column, double-click "Main Mouse Wheel"
-A new window to configure the controller will pop up. Make sure the
second check box, "Enable this Controller" is checked, or else this won't
-Find the "Scroll Up" event, (it should be at the top). Double-click it or
click "Edit" at the bottom.
-Click on the "Tools" section and type "increase" in the search field
-Scroll down and click on the action "Increase Brush Size". The name is
"tools-paint-brush-size-increase&qu?ot;. (In some versions of GIMP it was
"Increase Brush Scale")
-Close the window, then edit the "Scroll Down" event
-This time type "Decrease" in the search bar and locate the "Decrease
Brush Size" action. (Name is "tools-paint-brush-size-decrease&qu?ot;)
-Close the action window, input controller window and click OK in the
"Preferences" window

Now you can simply scroll the mouse wheel to vary the brush size."

Hope it helps,
To me, it works perfectly! ;)
