Re: [nylug-talk] GIMP How to configure????

seriously, if you wnat to use the gimp, install from binaries,
installing everything form glib up to gimp is not fun, nor a worthwhile
use of your time (that is if you want an image editing program to use

It may be useful as a learnign experience.

what you probably want is to do './configure --prefix=/usr/local'

also, for later, are your gtk libs in /usr/local/bin? (probably)
then you need to have "/usr/local/bin" in /etc/ and you've run

On a system, especially a newbie one, installing binaries makes your
life easier, makes upgrading/installing/removing packages easier, and
stuff like that. Just a word of advice. I'm sure someone will tell me
how grotesquely wrong I am, and that building from source is the only
way to do it. They're wrong.
