great, but small problem
Authored by: elmer-12 on May 01, '02 01:34:46PM

I can't seem to open two pics at a time with this method. I put the binary posted here in the dock and dragged a photo onto it. OK, X and gimp open and there's the photo. Drag another photo onto the same dock icon. Nothing happens. Quit the gimp and gimp immediately restarts with the second photo! I can queue up lots of photos this way but you only see one in the Gimp at a time and you have to wait through the Gimp splash screen in between.
Is this unusual behaviour for this script? I'm new to scripts.

Okay, I think I've worked this out.

I can make this problem happen - if "Open In Gimp" starts Gimp, only the first picture gets loaded. If the Gimp is already running, the problem doesn't happen.

this makes no sense to me at all, but I'll look into it. "do shell script" must not return if it starts the gimp.
