gimp-data-extras package for F7 is missing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:12 EST
Description of problem:
The "gimp-data-extras" package for F7 is missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to install the package... It ain't there...
Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum search gimp-data-extras
No Matches found
I upgraded a girlfriends system from FC6 to F7 over the weekend. The upgrade
went OK, but she lost a lot of bushes and patterns in the GIMP. (She is a heavy
GIMP user.) It took a while to figure out, but the bushes and patterns were
suppose to be part of the gimp-data-extra package. I wasn't able to find the F7
package from YUM or by searching the various RPM repositories on the web.
Workaround is to manually download the gimp-data-extras source package for
Fedora Core 6. Peel apart the RPM using Archive Manager. Manually move the
GIMP Brushes and Patterns from the RPM to the proper dirs in ~/.gimp/ or
I've removed gimp-data-extras from Fedora 7 due to licensing issues (see bug
#225797). Upstream has sanitized gimp-data-extras in CVS but not yet issued a
fixed tarball, see also:
I'll re-add the package once upstream issues a fixed tarball, but until then you
can simply install the older FC RPM, no need to manually extract the files.
