Oh, sorry. I actually updated the upstream url on babl-git and gegl-git but I forgot gimp.

Upstream moved to git+ .

The redirection from the old place to the new one refused to work for me, maybe also for others.

That is not a purpose of -git packages. You are welcome to create a new package for gimp-git that doesn't conflict with gimp. If you want you can try to talk other Trusted User.

As regular user (how many regular(s) for one Trusted?) , I agree with imxh. Regards

FFY00 commented on 2018-06-01 08:18

Just one.

[quote]after discussing this with a Trusted User[/quote] how many trusted users?

@imyxh after discussing this with a Trusted User, we came up to the conclusion that this is not needed. You should use either gimp or gimp-git. If you really need to have both installed at the same time, you should make a different package providing that gimp-git in an alternative path.

Hello. I think we should make an effort to make this not conflict with GIMP, particularly because the new GTK+3 changes make gimp-git very untrustworthy for production. GIMP developers themselves have said that there are no inherent conflicts: the binaries are named gimp-2.10 and gimp-2.99 respectively. I've modified your PKGBUILD and hacked together an install file and linked them below. The install file partially borrowed from the GIMP wiki, and edited to correct a bug where GIMP tries to access /usr/share/gimp-2.99. I'm sure both are full of bad practices as I'm new to Arch, but they work as a proof of concept and I hope that someone can integrate them properly.

PKGBUILD: .install:

Also, you probably want to install to /opt/usr or something instead of $HOME/gimp-git/usr. (For some reason, GIMP refuses to install libraries into anything not ending in usr/lib....)

Arch Linux does not support /usr/libexec, but this package installs gimp-debug-tool-2.99 to that path. Please adjust this by adding "--libexecdir=/usr/bin" to the options for

Also I get configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --enable-gimp-remote, --with-gif-compression, --with-libcurl, --without-hal, --without-gvfs, --without-gnomevfs

You can savely remove that options from the line.

Dependencies: libwebp, gtk3, libmng, libxpm, libxmu. gtk3 for sure, the other ones maybe optional. babl needs to be >= 0.1.50.

The gtk3-port branch has been merged into master, making the gimp-gtk3-git PKGBUILD obsolete. I requested a merge of gimp-gtk3-git into gimp-git.
