Thanks to the hacking efforts of François Collard, there are now two new .zip files in the Download page:
- one is an updated Windows version for standard GIMP users
- another one is for PortableApps users
The main new is that the translations and help files finally work to some extent in the Windows version - but only if GIMP is installed in standard paths:
- for the standard GIMP, the path must be C:\PROGRA~1\GIMP-2.0 (i.e. the Program Files directory, which is different in each language, must begin with the letters PROGRA - e.g. in Italian it is so)
- for GIMPPortable, the path must be something like L:\PortableApps\GIMPPortable.
In both cases, the drive letter is not relevant.
Note that the help file may still not be working in some cases.
If your path is different and you really want the plugin translated, you can also create those directories by yourself, in the same drive where you installed GIMP, following the above specified paths, and put there the relevant files (the ones under the share\locale folder).
Note: if you think this is silly (as we do) and know how to address this issue please contact me!
