    Does anyone knows a really dummy tutorial for those that don't know unix at all to install The Gimp with X11.
    I tried Fink, gimpcomplete.pkg and others that I don't remember.
    Any help is appreciated
    thanks

    yes, I tried that too...
    maybe there is something wrong at my fink installation.
    when i type gimp i get :

    dyld: gimp1.2 can't open library: /usr/local/lib/libdl.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

    gimp is an open source X11 application and it stands for Graphic Image Manipulation Program I think.
    Sort of a free Photoshop competitor

    Close. It's the GNU Image Manipulation Program, and it ROCKS! Insane functionality, good compatibility, nice speed, and you can't beat the price. ;) I'd say it's worth checking into for anyone who can't afford PS7 or who just likes monkeying around with X11 based programs. It's really quite cool. :)

    If you want to pay for support, try openosx.com.

    They sell installers for a few cool open source programs.

    I have their GIMP package and I am happy with it. My only caution is that the folks at fink say don't install fink after using openosx.

    Cheers.

    The April edition of MacAdict had a little article about Open Source programs, and the included CD had a book called Fun with Fink. If you can find it on the newstand still, the PDF file is very helpful about setting up your mac to use X11. If you can't find it, try here to download the 2nd preview release of Fun with Fink (21MB download). Hope this helps.
