Gimp-Painter

Recently I have found a new thing for GIMP, the Gimp-painter, its a modification/patch in the original gimp sources, with the intention to get blending the colors, like this:



After I got the new, I tried to install it, but was a badly experience...
but today, trying again (Never surrender, u know xD)....
and I got it, is amazing functional..
I hope coloring some of my draws with it.. :P

Here I wrote a little "tutorial", for if u like to play with it ;)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 First u need download the GIMP sources, I used the last (2.6.1) http://www.gimp.org/

2 After u need get the Gimp-painter patch here: http://sourceforge.jp/projects/gimp-painter/ I used the (gimp-painter--20081024.diff)

3 Install the dependencies with apt-get build-dep gimp like root ;)

4 Extract the Gimp sources in a folder and paste the patch in the same place.

5 apply the patch with: patch -p1 < Direction where is the .diff.

6 Gimp is patched, time to compile :P; like many other programs:
./configure
make
make install

7 Enjoy! :P

Hey thanks for the nice tutorial. Just a quick question before i make install, should I remove a previous version of gimp installed via the package manager before I make install? Or can I set the prefix to somewhere like my home folder and test start it from there, without damaging an installed version?
