Updating GIMP osx build scripts

January 24, 2013 by admin

I’ve spent some time this week working on my jhbuild scripts, making sure they are as easy to use as possible. Unfortunately, they still require some baby-ing to work correctly. I have also renamed a few modules, and tweaked their settings to lower the amount of annoyance caused by the build system.

The gimp module “gimp-python” (a working name at the time) has since been renamed to “gimp-2.8″, while another module has been added, “gimp-master”. This means that you can now install gimp-2.8 and gimp-2.9 side-by-side without experiencing any problems.

Note that this will generate two separate gimp checkouts in the source directory, one named gimp-2.8 and the other gimp-master.

Hopefully this will make it easier for people to create their own builds without having to mess with macports et al.

I will also be updating the bundle information so that gimp 2.8 or 2.9 bundles can be created at will.
