The RC3 files for 7.04 are not available any more. Any ideas where I can get them?

Thanks, Joseph

This is not a Windows theme, but a Gtk default theme. It's because GIMP 2.4 needs a newer Gtk version than shipped with Ubuntu 7.04 so the package comes with an own Gtk which doesn't share themes, settings etc. with the system Gtk. You'd have to put themes into /opt/gimp-2.4/etc, /opt/gimp-2.4/share etc

For some reason it seems to have installed with a windows-y gtk theme. I didn't even know you could do that in linux. Any suggestions on how to resolve?

How about a torrent? That would work just fine for a lot of people as well.

Added a mirror for the DEBs (uploading.com). See download page

Seems that the download service is not available. If this condition persists, I'll have to search another one and upload it again. :(

Is anyone else having trouble actually downloading the file? I've tried multiple times this morning and now tonight. It never starts my Download.

Does anyone know the trick to getting the Wacom pressure sensitivity working? I remember fiddling with it in my pre-Ubuntu days. One thing I was doing was to change /etc/X11/xorg.conf to directly use the mouse input device, and not /dev/input/mice. However, the Ubuntu packaged gimp 2.2 still works with pressure sensitivity even with the it set to /dev/input/mice, so there must be a way of doing it.

This is something great. Thank you so much guys for you hard work. I've been using your deb packages on Ubuntu Box for my web production jobs.
