GIMP requires babl >= 0.1.18 but there's only babl 0.1.16-1 in the community repo. So babl-git might be required as a dependency.

Why is gnome-python in the makedepends? I was able to build it fine without it.

mytbk commented on 2016-04-28 00:32

I've built version without issues.
mypaint-brush.h is in libmypaint-git package.

Can not be compiled.

gimpmybrush-load.c:25:27: fatal error: mypaint-brush.h: No such file or directory

Indeed the file mypaint-brush.h still not exist.
Anyone can confirm this?

According to this bugreport - - it would be a good idea to make this package not providing "gimp", but something like "gimp-2.99" to make it possible to install both branches in parallel.


"Cool. Since you seem to be active there, can you tell them that
the following is wrong:

Conflicts: gimp
Provides: gimp
Replaces: gimp

gimp-3.x is completely parallel installable with gimp-2.x, nothing
conflicts, and it replaces nothing. It's a different thing with different
names for binaries, folders, libraries, everything."

I always wondered about the huge amount of "Required by"-Packages. Most of them don't even work with Gimp-2.99. Some modifications to the PKGBUILD would be necessary, but only for stuff like .desktop file and corresponding icons.

I've made the changes manually here on my system and it works really well. I would gladly provide the changes, but I'm not really into making PKGBUILDs.

Just as an example for a .desktop file:


"[Desktop Entry]
Name=Gimp 2.99
Name[de]=Gimp 2.99
GenericName=Image Editor
Comment=Create images and edit photographs
Comment[de]=Bilder erstellen und Fotografien bearbeiten
Exec=gimp-2.99 %U

@systemshq - this is what says:

<drc> Try downgrading babl to 0.1.14. There is an issue that is being worked on.
<jjt> that problem might be fixed now - you could try pulling latest gegl+babl

Just recompiled gimp today. Is anyone getting the issue of the mypaint brushes not being listed?

[EDIT]: Found out that they made a new dockable dialog dedicated to MyPaint brush selection. If anyone's just as confused as me, that's where it'll be.

A new gimp-git PKGBUILD is uploaded.

I've updated my gegl-git, and now it has /usr/bin/gegl instead of /usr/bin/gegl-0.3, and libmypaint-git is also created.

I was banging my head against the wall trying to compile everything automatically with packer-color until I decided to see if they may have changed any prerequisites upstream.
Looks like I was right, there has been not one, but two major changes that break this package in the last week:

1. The gegl-git package no longer works because the autor decided to use a suffixed/renamed 'gegl-0.3' executable, and now GIMP looks for a 'gegl' one. Right now using the standard gegl package from the official repos works fine.

If you received the fateful "Could not find gegl in your PATH" then this is your problem.

Culprit commit:

2. libmypaint is not longer optional, I tried to pass `--without-libmypaint` but they removed the switch in ./configure six days ago in this commit:

As far as I know there's no provider for `libmypaint` apart from using the entire 'mypaint' package from the official repositories. That's why I decided to anchor my local PKGBUILD to the commit right before the change and call it a day.

Hope it helps people trying to compile this behemoth. Having a buildbot with an unofficial repo would be cool... or even better, updating the official 'gimp' package to 2.9.2, as 2.8 is too old.
