I just installed the Ubuntu 10.4 version of Linux and The GIMP. I copied over all my working script and plug-in directories/folders from Windows. As $whereis python confirms, Ubuntu comes with Python 2.7. I have no idea if pygtk, pycairo, and/or pygobject are ijnstalled (whereis did not find them). All I know is two things: (1) back in Windows, I had to hunt all over the place to find 2.5 versions (instead of 2.6 or 2.7, which was not easy) of Python, pygtk, pycairo, and pygobject before python-fu would load and run without spewing a lot of error messages during startup; python-fu itself shows up on the Filter menu ok and I get no error messages during GIMP startup. But, alas, none of my python-fu scrips are working. (And i am not too sure about my script-fu scripts and Photoshop plug-ins either). Has anybody gotten all this working under Ubuntu Linux? If so, HELP!
