Gimp nighly builds WILL NOT run
trying out the bug fixed stable version of the Nightly builds found on http://nightly.darkrefraction.com/gimp/ that the Gimp website linked to but NONE will run! it is saying that libgimp-2.0-0 is missing from my system at least 100 TIMES before the Gimp closes despite that it IS there! I tried both the exe and bat in the download, both produce the SAME issue!

RE: Gimp nighly builds WILL NOT run
I thought I would give it a try in a Win7 VM.
The compilation is 32 bit (i686) and I have not yet tried it in a 64 bit machine.

It does work. That error message comes up if you try and start the gimp executable directly. The web site is quite clear, start it with the batch file. Already done that, try again or maybe it does not like a 64 bit Windows, who knows.

Here is an all-in-one screenshot of Gimp, the un-zipped folder, the batch file (all it does is add the installation path), and the Win7 run dialog in case you have forgotten about it.

Snags,
The usual long wait for a first run as it hunts for fonts.
Some screen video tearing when moving the Gimp window.
Very slow and a definite brush lag.

Conclusion: stick with the regular build.

wow, your lucky it barely worked for you rich lol. For me when I loaded the unstable("stable") nightly build, it loads up but if I resize the main window or try to do stuff with it, within minutes or less it crashes XD
