Gimp 2.7.1, Inkscape 0.48

November 12, 2010 — BarryK
Ttuuxxx has put in a huge effort to provide us with Gimp and Inkscape packages for Wary Puppy. Considering that Wary is my long-term-supported Puppy, ttuuxxx's packages are going to be in use by a great many people for a very long time -- at least a couple of years, or until we next decide to compile later versions.

Forum threads:

I checked that they worked, and thumbs up on that. Tweaked the database entries just a teensy bit:

I have uploaded the PETs to the 'puppy-wary5' repository at

If you want to test these in Wary (and they might work in other puppies such as Lucid), they are not yet in the Puppy Package Manager, but you can download them individually and install them. Note that when you install with the PPM, dependencies are taken care of, but not when you just click on one PET to install it. So, for Gimp, be sure to install its two dependencies gegl and babl:,,

Inkscape has no dependencies, just install:

Regarding compiling packages that need the gtkmm libraries (Inkscape, Gparted), ttuuxxx has bundled the *mm static libraries into one PET to make it easier for developers:
