[Gimp-user] Poppler-glib for Windows build

Hi Jehan,

I managed to resolve the dependency on poppler-glib but not poppler-data as yet.
In the meantime I updated the packages using pacman to get the recommended
version of gtk+-2.0 (V2.24.32 instead of V2.24.31) - big mistake - the dll file
is now 3.8 kB instead of the version 2.24.31 file which was 5.7 kB - trying to
build GIMP with the V2.24.32 version throws errors. Whilst I have a copy of the
V2.24.31 dll I can't find the relevant place to alter the version of the package
that the system thinks it has installed. So for the time being I'm stuck.

If it helps anyone else, the steps I followed to get poppler-glib installed (at
least to the point where the GIMP build doesn't complain about a missing
dependency) were as follows:

Download file poppler-0.44.0.tar.xz from

Extract the contents of the downloaded file and move the contents of the V0.44
folder into folder poppler (rather than leaving them in a sub-folder)

cd poppler



./configure --prefix=$PREFIX

make -j4

make install - j4

As a general rule, unless I want to fix something in a dependency, I
work with the last stable build. Then if there is a problem and I want
the easy way out (i.e. still not having to fix the dependency), I
would just go back in history, but still keep to stable builds.
Also to compile for Windows, I use the tool I built, but this is to
cross-compile from Linux to Windows, and for most dependencies, I just
install them in a single command from pre-built packages. So I can't
really help you. Sorry. Working *on* Windows is just not what I do.
Maybe others will be able to help.

This said, maybe you can try to use the same pre-built package for
Windows (I use the ones from OpenSUSE repositories). Just uncompress
them and use the files in it.
