Description Steve D... 2007-08-10 02:40:23 UTC
Description of problem:

The "gimp-data-extras" package for F7 is missing.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora 7

How reproducible:

Try to install the package... It ain't there...

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum search gimp-data-extras
Actual results:

No Matches found

Expected results:

Additional info:

  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

Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2007-08-10 08:14:03 UTC
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.
