I'm new to gimp and am fumbling my way through. The
first thing I did when I got stuck is clicked the help pull down menu, then help,
and I got this message "The GIMP help browser plug-in appears to be missing from your installation. You may instead use the web browser for reading the help pages."
So I went to the plugins and can't find it. Then I searched for help plugin. The results
were quite comical. I recommend it for a giggle. It's tough to find help on the literal topic because everyone is asking for "Help"
I saw the list of plugins and there are some cool things I'd like to try. Why are'nt they just part of the package? Shapes, that would be a good one to include. people are used to FAT graphics packages. Fireworks.. omg, i'm so lost. way too many features.
It would be great if there were an intuative easy to learn based on standards we may have used before but also full featured tool. Gimp is hard to use. LView was an easy one that I miss now that I'm a full time linux user. Kudos to All openSource Programmers. I've been waiting a long time to see this kind of software for linux.
I hope and pray I see the day that the Evil Illegal monopoly Empire Falls.
is there a link to the gimp help plugin? That also would be cool to have, searchable help, right out of the box, no internet required. I like that the help key is still F1,
but where's the industry standard help tool and why is it a plugin?
