1. Win32 Compilation Problems

12 Mar 2001 (7 posts) Archive Link: "Win32 compilation problems"

People: Hans BreuerMichael NattererJason MaskellTor Lillqvist

Jason Maskell posted that he was having trouble compiling the Win32 port of the Gimp under VC++ 6. Tor Lillqvist warned that there might be problems compiling the HEAD branch of the CVS. He said Hans Breuer has been working with MSVC to keep things compatible. Michael Natterer didn't think any changes had been made that would render Win32 compiling incompatible, and that the version was not from HEAD since the warnings posted were for things that no longer existed. Hans Breuer added that all of the makefiles are hand-written for msvc and that there has been much file renaming since his last commit. A working msvc will be committed when things settle down a bit.

2. Locales and the Gimp

13 Mar 2001 (2 posts) Archive Link: "Asking for autorization"

People: Michael Natterer

Miles O'Neal forward a question to the list asking for a "french" version of the Gimp. Michael Natterer responded that the Gimp uses locales, so including the proper environment variable (in this case LC_ALL=fr_FR gimp or whatever worked on your system) will start the gimp in the right locale.
