Hi, I’m sorry to write asking for help from third-party software, but I hope someone has an answer for me.
Well, I think you all know Gimp, but there’s an add-on to transform the interface into Photoshop, the thing is I’ve tried everything I’ve read out there, but I can’t transform the look of the program.
Some of you already have it installed with this theme.
Thank you very much, and greetings.
@iero79 PhotoGimp is designed to work ONLY with the Flatpak install of GIMP only.
First we will be working in the terminal, so open a terminal.
Install Flatpak support. sudo pacman -S flatpak
Add the Flathub respository. flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://dl.flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
NOTE: Once Flatpak is installed, one does not need to use sudo.
Install Gimp. flatpak install org.gimp.GIMP
Run the flatpak install of GIMP to make sure it opens properly. Once it is open, close it.
Download PhotoGIMP from GitHub. git clone https://github.com/Diolinux/PhotoGIMP.git
Close the terminal, and open your file manager. I use KDE so it is Dolphin.
Go to the upper-right corner and click on the "3 bar icon". That will bring up the settings menu.
Select the "Show Hidden Files" option.
You should now see a series of folders and files whose name starts with a "dot". Example .bashrc
Open the PhotoGIMP folder.
In that folder you will see three folders named .icons .local .var
Select those three folders and copy them to your Home folder.
If asked to overwrite a file, select Yes
Once the files are finished copying, GIMP should now run using the PhotoGimp customizations.
Some things to consider. If you have GIMP installed from the Garuda repositories and then you install the flatpak version, you will have two versions of the same program listed in your start menu. I suggest uninstalling the version from the repo first before installing the flatpak version. Less confusion this way.
