Experiment with GIMP's new single window mode
Authored by: xplora on Mar 11, '10 11:48:48AM

I'd like to point out that this is not a Mac OS X hint, but an Ubuntu linux hint.

If it really was a mac hint, why do we need to run ubuntu in a virtual environment?

In short this hint is really just saying, if you want to try the experimental GIMP version, use linux. And the real hint here is off topic with the obvious suggestion that if you want to run another OS in a virtual environment, use a virtualization package.

Of course, in a way you are right: essentially, I just collected some Ubuntu Linux information from OSNews, Ars Technica and Google, and then tried to present it for Mac OS X users.

But currently this seems to be the only way to try GIMP 2.7.x on Mac OS X: i.e., through virtualization. (BTW, probably it could also he done for older PPC Macs, with Virtual PC 7: just add "i8042.noloop" and "noreplace-paravirt" to the boot parameters; slooooow, of course...)

If someone here (for example, the "GIMP on OS X" developers) is capable of building a Mac OS X (X11) binary of GIMP 2.7.1 or 2.7.3 or whatever, that would certainly be very cool, indeed: but probably, as I said before, this is not an easy task.

So, better to vitualizaze than nothing, I'd say... ;-) :-)

Ehm, *virtualize*, of course: sorry for the typo...
