Different items in toolbox

Hello,

Preamble: I'm using Gimp 1.2.1-7, on a RedHat 7.2 system with Wacom's Graphire 2 tablet.

I have been reading 'Groking the Gimp' by Carey Bunks and I've noticed in the images of the toolbox on the 'Groking the Gimp' webpages that he has 27 tools whereas I have only 25. The two items I don't have are Xinput airbrush and Manipulate path.

Can anyone advise as to how I can get these tools?

(It just won't do that someone has more tools than I have ;-))

Eve

He states somewhere in the beginning..preface?, that he is using gimp v1.2. Still you could be right.

Haven't seen any followup - did you ever get an answer to your question?

Good Morning,

No I haven't heard from anyone regarding my question. I would still really like to know. I thought of writing the author but I couldn't find an email address at the 'gimp_savvy' website.

my guess is that they planned to have these tools, and the book was written. then, for what ever reason, the tools were left out of the final version. The same tools are prolly found somewhere else, through menus or dialogs.

the 1.3 gimp has inspired many discussions on what is a "tool" and what isn't. it seems like artists and coders have different ideas on this. there are many new tool buttons in the 1.3 version, but rumor has it that some of those will be removed from the toolbox before it is over.

i don't know that the book actually has you use these left out tools.

Thank you for responding. I haven't finished reading the book so I don't know if these tools are emphasized. I did look up Xinput airbrush in the index and didn't find much in the way of 'use explanation'
