ThinDownload - Gimp
This would run from a network share
I've started looking into GIMP on our network, anyone here deploying it on Windows using Group Policy?
I was also toying with the idea of GIMP Portable, could this be run from a share for multiple users? I'm going to have a play.
GIMP Portable | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB drives
I'll take a look.
The portable version works but tries to create the swap in the share rather than in the users profile, shame.
I deploy via Group Policy - I just wrap it up with Windows Installer Wrapper Wizard (WIWW) - a hint, the silent install switch is /silent
There's a few silly settings to add into your default profile but you only need to do that once.
Ok i'll take a look cheers Ric, I was actually about to try WinInstall LE 2003 but it can be a faff.
Finally got around to taking a look at this, what are the settings that need to be in the default profile?There's a few silly settings to add into your default profile but you only need to do that once.
Is it just me or has development on GIMP slowed to a crawl?
@cookie_monster: The settings you need can be set using your profile and a .gimp-2.x folder will be created in your profile folder. Copy this to the profile folder you need and all is well.
Development is still going strong - 2.7 has just been released to beta and that has some great new features.

How odd that it doesn't put the .gimp-2.6 folder in application data but in the root of the profile.
I'm sure that in a previous release that the open file dialogue box obeyed windows policy, now when I’m logged on as a student I can click the folder browse icons at the top and access the C: drive.
Is there a way around this?
just be careful with file association it dosent like letting go of them if it gets them. I deployed it as a ghost package and had to remove it and recreate
Be nice if while porting it to windows they could change it, it annoys meThat's because in *nix-land, where the GIMP originates, they live in the root of the home directory.
Any ideas about stopping the students browsing C: or does that not bother you?
