Gimp install - Windows 7
Is there any way to take the settings for one user (windowed mode enabled and toolbar layout) and apply those to all users who then log in to the computer afterwards?

The setup for one user is not carrying over for all users. Is there a way to configure GIMP so that my changes affect all users.

Any help is appreciated.

RE: Gimp install - Windows 7
Just downloaded & tried to install GIMP 2.8.2. Keep getting error message "There was an error parsing the menu definition from image-menu.xml: Failed to open file 'C\Program Files(x86)\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\menus\image-menu.xml: No such file or directory"
I then cannot right click to get the menus.
Can anyone out there assist, please?

RE: Gimp install - Windows 7
I know from your first post that you are trying to 'unify' the interface for all users
but
You need to say exactly what you have done.
You installed Gimp 2.8.2 in a Win7 (is it 64 bit?) which default install is to
C\Program Files\GIMP 2
but your error message references a 32 bit Gimp 2.6.x installation
C\Program Files(x86)\GIMP-2.0

There are significant differences between a 2.6 'image-menu.xml' and the 2.8 version. That grafting-in even in the correct location is not going to work.
