Problem with page setup
Hello!

I'm having some trouble with GIMP's page setup option. I recetly installed latest version (2.6.11) on a laptop running windows 7 professional. The problem is when i click page setup, nothing happens. The window doesn't appear, and no error is shown. It simply won't open. I tried reinstalling gimp. I even tried an earlier version (2.6.7) but to no avail.

I have two shared printers installed, that work fine from any program, including gimp.
The bottom line is i can print but i can not acces the page setup option.

I looked for an answer onlin but no one seems to have had this kind of problem.

Please help me resolve this issue

RE: Problem with page setup
Might be a case where your page setup dialog is shown off-screen because its saved coordinates say so for whatever reason. See if you have it listed in

c:/Users/{your_id}/.gimp-2.6/sessionrc

If it's there, remove the lines...

Otherwise you can set values in:

c:/Users/{your_id}/.gimp-2.6/print-page-setup

(see also if by any chance there are problems with this file, such as access rights)

You can also start gimp from a command prompt in verbose mode (--verbose) and see if yo get any messages when you open the Print setup dialog.

RE: Problem with page setup
First of all, thanks for the response.
Unfortunately, it didn't help me identify the problem.

1. In sessionnrc i didn't find it listed.
(session-info "dock" "dock"
(position 1124 28)
(size 210 661)
(open-on-exit)
(aux-info
(show-image-menu "true")
(follow-active-image "true"))
(dock
(book
(current-page 0)
(dockable "gimp-layer-list"
(tab-style icon)
(preview-size 32))
(dockable "gimp-channel-list"
(tab-style icon)
(preview-size 32))
(dockable "gimp-vectors-list"
(tab-style icon)
(preview-size 32))
(dockable "gimp-undo-history"
(tab-style icon)))
(book
(position 325)
(current-page 0)
(dockable "gimp-brush-grid"
(tab-style preview))
(dockable "gimp-pattern-grid"
(tab-style preview))
(dockable "gimp-gradient-list"
(tab-style preview)))))
(session-info "toolbox" "dock"
(position 9 54)
(size 160 648)
(open-on-exit)
(dock
(book
(current-page 0)
(dockable "gimp-tool-options"
(tab-style icon)))))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-preferences-dialog"
(position 192 62))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-text-tool-dialog"
(position 581 282)
(size 366 342))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-file-save-dialog"
(position 199 52)
(size 890 571))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-scale-tool-dialog"
(position 100 100))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-image-new-dialog"
(position 30 30))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-module-dialog"
(position 25 25)
(size 291 282))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-file-open-dialog"
(position 238 89)
(size 890 571))
(session-info "display" "gimp-empty-image-window"
(position 0 24)
(size 1362 706))

(last-tip-shown 15)

# end of sessionrc



2. In print-page-setup the following values appear:
[print-page-setup]
PPDName=Letter
DisplayName=US Letter
Width=215.89999389648437
Height=279.39999389648438
MarginTop=6.3499999999999996
MarginBottom=14.224
MarginLeft=6.3499999999999996
MarginRight=6.3499999999999996
Orientation=portrait

3. And when i run gimp in verbose mode and click page setup no messages appear.

I attached the two files you mentioned, maybe you see something that might help.
I'm opened to any other suggestions.

Thanks again.

RE: Problem with page setup
I don't run W7 so I can't help much more. My last suggestion is to save anything useful in your Gimp profile (brushes/patterns/gradients/fonts/scripts/plugins...), erase your profile, and start Gimp.

I mentioned the print-page-setup file because I think you can edit it to setup paper size, margin and orientation if all else fails.

On the other hand there is also a "page setup" tab in the print dialog (allows allows preview), does it work for you?

RE: Problem with page setup
Thanks for your advice.

I've given up trying to figure out why it doesn't work.
I think i'm going to wait for the new version.

Cheers.
