Running GIMP under Cygwin (not Win32!)??
Mon Mar 3 15:50:00 GMT 2003
I posted this question to the cygwin mailing list last week, and someone on that list referred me here and said he cross-posted for me. I didn't hear anything from his "cross-post," so I'm trying again...
It would seem it's at least possible to run The GIMP under Cygwin/XFree. Try as I might, I can't get it to work. Specifically, I can't get some of the necessary pre-requeistes to configure and make properly (glib, GTK+, etc.) Has ANYONE gotten GIMP to work under Cygwin, and if so, specifically what steps did you take to get it to work? I've done a lot of research on this before asking the question, and there is bare mention of this on the web -- I see NO WHERE where anyone claims that this works. Essentially, there is no SOLID information ANYWHERE on getting this to work.
I am interested only in running GIMP under Cygwin/XFree -- I am NOT interested the Win32 version of GIMP! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
