Reviving Tito (The menu search tool)

Hey,

It's been a while, so I'm picking up a new thread. [See related links at the bottom]
I'm eager to contribute more towards Tito. I'm willing to fix bugs and do chores. I'll also be available for discussions on IRC or here.

Here's the thing: -I love Tito, I've been using it very often. -Quite a few people on the web seem to like Tito. -About a dozen (people who pulled the source and built it) have tried it. -Tito merges softly with git master.

From our earlier discussions on this, guiguru had objections to its usage. A lot of people on IRC, inclusing mitch, really liked it.

From a recent discussion on IRC, schumami said it would be nice to share my usage experience.
So, here it is.

[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:12:05 PM] so... does it improve or hinder your progress when learning to use gimp? [Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:13:03 PM] i.e. do you have the feeling that you're using it to find commands you think you could have accessed quicker without it?
[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:13:09 PM] schumaml: improve. [Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:13:52 PM] i think it helps me find commands faster.
[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:14:32 PM] I use shortcuts for most on-canvas stuff... like cropping, selecting, etc [Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:15:10 PM] For applying filters, using some plugin, opening recent file, I use tito. [Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:15:46 PM] I also use tito to quickly bring up the error console, bring up preferences menu... [Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:16:09 PM] show/hide the scrollbars, grid, rulers, etc
[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:17:27 PM] I use the mouse lesser with tito.
[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:18:11 PM] So, I woudn't say its earth shattering in terms of the leverage it gives to get faster, or learn faster...
[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:18:35 PM] but it is definitely useful. increases my productivity.
[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:20:56 PM] I'm pretty sure guiguru/guihipster would be interested in a descriotion of your usage experience
[Tuesday 04 Sep 2012] [10:21:24 PM] *decription

You can

git checkout -b tito
git pull git@github.com:ssrihari/gimp-tito.git tito

to try out Tito.

Do you like Tito? (Try it out! :) ) What features would you like in Tito? Do you think it's got potential to be a part of GIMP?

I'm surprised. I couldn't even get it to build -- it was unable to locate GEGL. Needless to say, I have a few branch builds of GIMP around, and all of them compile.

Hey Alexandre,

git pull git@github.com:ssrihari/gimp-tito.git tito && make && make install

Merges and builds fine for me.
Please ensure that you pulled from the* tito branch.*

If it still fails, could you please let me know what the problem is?

it was unable to locate GEGL

Could you elaborate on this?

Reviving Tito (The menu search tool)

Just a small update-

I had badly messed up the remote master on github. I think I have fixed it now. Sorry for that. (I'm still a git - beginner)

This sequence of cmds works for me

git checkout upstream/master #(official gimp repo. no tito here) git pull --rebase git@github.com:ssrihari/gimp-tito.git #(pull in Tito changes)
make && make install #(I've configured path, pkg config, reqd libs)

~/dev/gimp/bin/gimp-2.9

I hope there will be no build errors or merge conflicts now. Please do get back with errors if any.

I shall be working on the Tito branch
henceforth.

That was it :)

Well, Tito looks like fun, but tells me "Unable to open history file to write" every time I select a command from the list and press Enter.

Nice to know :)

"Unable to open history file to write"

Normally, shouldn't show up. It may mean that tito/gimp does not have write access to the gimp-sysconf directory (gimp/etc/gimp/2.0/).

Could you tell me if any related error shows up on the console?

You require write access to a directory which is part of the gimp installation? How should a normal user have that?

Fixed to use the user data and config directory. Thanks! :)
