    Hi folks

    Great program but better on Linux (or you can use on Linux subsystem with WSL ).

    Just install Bash and the Ubuntu desktop with an Xserver and you can run it far better then installing the Windows version !!!!

    Runs a lot quicker and you don't need separate qt or other stuff to make it work -- also for updates is easy just use apt-get update !! even within windows.

    For the Xserver :

    Note though on Windows in the ubuntu desktop run from console -

    1} VcXsrv Windows X Server download | SourceForge.net

    That's the Xserver ( the Linux Windows / GUI manager)

    2) install (on Windows) , start it (it's called Xlaunch on your Windows desktop) and then start the Ubuntu subsystem

    do apt-get update

    install say a graphical editor e.g Nautilus -- you might have to run the apt update again to get all the repositories -- then it will load a load of modules and away you go.

    You still have to start the application though from the command line.

    Ensure before you call the program that you have enabled the Xserver on the WSL.
    As root you have to do the following cmd

    export DISPLAY=:0

    Now run the program you want e.g Nautilus ( A Ubuntu graphical file manager) - ignore a load of error / warning messages on the console

    enjoy

    cheers

    Is this running it in Linux subsystem on Windows? Interesting.
    Nice to see in action, to play around with.

    But 2.10 should be natively faster than 2.8 on Windows too. For GIMP alone it will be quite a hassle deploying all that subsystem. Unless you're on Linux already or you got it all setup; less attractive for average users.

    Cheers!

    The official GIMP 2.10.2 Windows installer is again... supporting older 32-bit plugins.
    That might get this closer to Samj's version that already supports this.

    But now we're back with 32-bit Python, while 2.10.0 had 64-bit Python, (no 32-bit plugins neither) just like Partha's version.
    I decided a while ago to make a 64-bit only installation so It was a weird bumpy ride moving all that was running in 2.10.0 to this version and keeping 64-bit Python but it finally worked out. Just have to keep in mind all that's needed when upgrading to newer version; manual copy-moves of files can be a mess.

    Regarding GMIC qt:
    Simply placing / installing the whole "gmic_..." folder package under the gimp/.../plugins folder auto-detects it now apparently; no need to add extra paths in Preferences settings.

    @Cliff S

    I've been taking a look at gimp to get reacquainted as it's the tool of choice for a lot users who for price, or other reasons, do not go with the de facto industry standard - Photoshop, and to allow me to better help those users.

    Do you have any experience of Gimp "deciding" to open a standard dialogue on a screen of it's choice rather than the logical screen where the actual app is running ?

    I without warning, after update to 10.0.2, could not use the FG/BG colour selection dialogue and so went through everything I could think of even to reinstalling the 2.10 version without luck. I could see the Dialogue in the Taskbar preview but could not access it. Then it struck me, the Dialogue was opening on my second monitor, [40" Smart TV], that I was using for it's original purpose - watching TV.

    I switched to PC input and there was the Dialogue laughing at me - I then moved it back where it belonged and saved the position, and it seems to sticking now. The thing is that I had never used gimp on dual screen since loading the latest version so cannot think of any reason for what happened other than a glitch

    I have never had that problem when I use GIMP.
    I use Single Window mode

    Now When I run the PC Mark 10 benchmark,
    it has a test where it checks software opening/loading times,
    and Gimp is one of the programs it tests, and does not use single window mode,
    so the work area and docks are floating,
    and then some docks open on my secondary monitor where the workspace stays on my primary.

    About the dialogs showing up on other monitor...
    Many of the tools use command prompt to open a tool, usually so fast you don't see it, or under the workspace, could it be you have command prompt setup to open on another screen?(just a shot in the dark)
