gimprc-1.3




DESCRIPTION

       The  gimprc  file  is a configuation file read by the GIMP
       when it starts up.  There are two of  these:  one  system-
       wide  one  stored  in  /etc/gimp/1.3/gimprc and a per-user
       $HOME/.gimp-1.3/gimprc which may override system settings.

       Comments  are  introduced by a hash sign (#), and continue
       until the end of the line.  Blank lines are ignored.

       The gimprc file associates values with properties.   These
       properties  may  be  set  by  lisp-like assignments of the
       form:

              (property-name value)

       where:

       property-name
                 is one of the property names described below.

       value     is the value the property is to be set to.

       Either spaces or tabs may be used  to  separate  the  name
       from the value.


PROPERTIES

       Valid properties and their default values are:

       (temp-path "${gimp_dir}/tmp")

              Sets  the  temporary  storage directory. Files will
              appear here during the course of running the  GIMP.
              Most  files will disappear when the GIMP exits, but
              some files are likely to remain, so it is  best  if
              this  directory  not be one that is shared by other
              users.  This is a single folder.

       (swap-path "${gimp_dir}")

              Sets the swap file location. The gimp uses  a  tile
              based  memory  allocation  scheme. The swap file is
              used to quickly and easily swap tiles out  to  disk
              and back in. Be aware that the swap file can easily
              get very large if  the  GIMP  is  used  with  large
              images.  Also,  things can get horribly slow if the
              swap file is created on a directory that is mounted
              over  NFS.   For these reasons, it may be desirable

              On  multiprocessor  machines, if GIMP has been com­
              piled with --enable-mp this sets how  many  proces­
              sors  GIMP  should  use simultaneously.  This is an
              integer value.

       (tile-cache-size 64M)

              The tile cache  is  used  to  make  sure  the  GIMP
              doesn't  thrash tiles between memory and disk. Set­
              ting this value higher will cause the GIMP  to  use
              less  swap  space,  but will also cause the GIMP to
              use more memory. Conversely, a smaller  cache  size
              causes  the  GIMP  to  use more swap space and less
              memory.  The integer size can contain a  suffix  of
              'B', 'K', 'M' or 'G' which makes GIMP interpret the
              size  as  being  specified  in  bytes,   kilobytes,
              megabytes  or  gigabytes. If no suffix is specified
              the size defaults to being specified in  kilobytes.

       (interpolation-type linear)

              Sets  the  level  of interpolation used for scaling
              and other  transformations.   Possible  values  are
              none, linear and cubic.

       (plug-in-path                           "${gimp_dir}/plug-
       ins:${gimp_plug_in_dir}/plug-ins")

              Sets the plug-in search path.  This is a colon-sep­
              arated list of folders to search.

       (module-path "${gimp_dir}/modules:${gimp_plug_in_dir}/mod­
       ules")

              Sets the module search path.  This is a colon-sepa­
              rated list of folders to search.

       (environ-path                           "${gimp_dir}/envi­
       ron:${gimp_plug_in_dir}/environ")

              Sets the environ search path.  This is a colon-sep­
              arated list of folders to search.

       (brush-path
       "${gimp_dir}/brushes:${gimp_data_dir}/brushes")

              Sets the palette search path.  This is a colon-sep­
              arated list of folders to search.

       (gradient-path                         "${gimp_dir}/gradi­
       ents:${gimp_data_dir}/gradients")

              Sets  the  gradient  search path.  This is a colon-
              separated list of folders to search.

       (font-path "${gimp_dir}/fonts:${gimp_data_dir}/fonts")

              Where to look for fonts.  This is a colon-separated
              list of folders to search.

       (default-brush "Circle (11)")

              Specify a default brush.  The brush is searched for
              in the specified brush  path.   This  is  a  string
              value.

       (default-pattern "Pine")

              Specify  a default pattern. The pattern is searched
              for in the  specified  pattern  path.   This  is  a
              string value.

       (default-palette "Default")

              Specify a default palette.  The palette is searched
              for in the  specified  palette  path.   This  is  a
              string value.

       (default-gradient "FG to BG (RGB)")

              Specify   a  default  gradient.   The  gradient  is
              searched for in the specified gradient path.   This
              is a string value.

       (default-font "Sans")

              Specify  a  default font.  The font is searched for
              in the fontconfig font path.
               This is a string value.

              Sets the default image width in the "File/New" dia­
              log.  This is an integer value.

       (default-image-height 256)

              Sets  the  default  image  height in the "File/New"
              dialog.  This is an integer value.

       (default-unit inches)

              Sets the default unit for new images  and  for  the
              "File/New"  dialog.  This  units  will  be used for
              coordinate display when not  in  dot-for-dot  mode.
              The  unit can be one inches, millimeters, points or
              picas plus those in your user units database.

       (default-xresolution 72.000000)

              Sets the  default  horizontal  resolution  for  new
              images and for the "File/New" dialog. This value is
              always in dpi (dots per inch).   This  is  a  float
              value.

       (default-yresolution 72.000000)

              Sets the default vertical resolution for new images
              and for the "File/New" dialog. This value is always
              in dpi (dots per inch).  This is a float value.

       (default-resolution-unit inches)

              Sets the units for the display of the default reso­
              lution in the "File/New" dialog.  The unit  can  be
              one inches, millimeters, points or picas plus those
              in your user units database.

       (undo-levels 5)

              Sets the minimal number of operations that  can  be
              undone.  More  undo levels are kept available until
              the undo-size limit is reached.  This is an integer
              value.

       (undo-size 1024k)


       (layer-previews yes)

              Sets whether GIMP should create previews of  layers
              and  channels.  Previews in the layers and channels
              dialog are nice to have but they  can  slow  things
              down when working with large images.  Possible val­
              ues are yes and no.

       (layer-preview-size medium)

              Sets the default preview size for layers and  chan­
              nels.    Possible  values  are  tiny,  extra-small,
              small, medium, large, extra-large,  huge,  enormous
              and gigantic.

       (thumbnail-size normal)

              Sets  the  size  of  the  thumbnail saved with each
              image. Note that GIMP can not  save  thumbnails  if
              layer  previews  are disabled.  Possible values are
              none, normal and large.

       (gamma-correction 1.000000)

              This setting is ignored.  This is a float value.

       (install-colormap no)

              Install a private  colormap;  might  be  useful  on
              pseudocolor  visuals.   Possible values are yes and
              no.

       (min-colors 144)

              Generally only a concern for 8-bit  displays,  this
              sets  the minimum number of system colors allocated
              for the GIMP.  This is an integer value.

       (marching-ants-speed 300)

              Speed of marching ants in  the  selection  outline.
              This  value is in milliseconds (less time indicates
              faster marching).  This is an integer value.


       (resize-windows-on-resize no)

              When enabled, the image window  will  automatically
              resize  itself,  whenever  the  physical image size
              changes.  Possible values are yes and no.

       (default-dot-for-dot yes)

              When enabled, this will ensure that each  pixel  of
              an  image  gets  mapped  to  a pixel on the screen.
              Possible values are yes and no.

       (initial-zoom-to-fit yes)

              When enabled, this will ensure that the full  image
              is  visible  after  a  file is opened, otherwise it
              will be displayed with a scale  of  1:1.   Possible
              values are yes and no.

       (perfect-mouse no)

              When  enabled,  the  X  server  is  queried for the
              mouse's current  position  on  each  motion  event,
              rather  than  relying  on  the position hint.  This
              means painting with large brushes  should  be  more
              accurate,  but  it  may  be slower.  Perversely, on
              some X servers  enabling  this  option  results  in
              faster painting.  Possible values are yes and no.

       (cursor-mode tool-icon)

              Sets  the mode of cursor the GIMP will use.  Possi­
              ble  values  are  tool-icon,   tool-crosshair   and
              crosshair.

       (cursor-updating yes)

              Context-dependent   cursors  are  cool.   They  are
              enabled by default. However, they require  overhead
              that  you  may want to do without.  Possible values
              are yes and no.

       (show-brush-outline yes)

              %p  PDB image id
              %i  view instance number
              %t  image type (RGB, grayscale, indexed)

              %h  image height in pixels
              %H  image height in real-world units
              %u  unit symbol
              %U  unit abbreviation

       (image-status-format "%f-%p.%i (%t)")

              Sets the text to  appear  in  image  window  status
              bars.  This is a format string; certain % character
              sequences are recognised and expanded as follows:

              %%  literal percent sign
              %f  bare filename, or "Untitled"
              %F  full path to file, or "Untitled"
              %p  PDB image id
              %i  view instance number
              %t  image type (RGB, grayscale, indexed)
              %z  zoom factor as a percentage
              %s  source scale factor
              %d  destination scale factor
              %Dx expands to x if the image is dirty,  the  empty
              string otherwise
              %Cx  expands  to x if the image is clean, the empty
              string otherwise
              %m  memory used by the image
              %l  the number of layers
              %L  the name of the active layer/channel
              %w  image width in pixels
              %W  image width in real-world units
              %h  image height in pixels
              %H  image height in real-world units
              %u  unit symbol
              %U  unit abbreviation


       (monitor-yresolution 72.000000)

              Sets the monitor's vertical resolution, in dots per
              inch.   If  set  to  0,  forces  the X server to be
              queried for both horizontal and vertical resolution
              information.  This is a float value.

       (monitor-resolution-from-windowing-system yes)

              When enabled, the GIMP will use the monitor resolu­
              tion from the windowing  system.   Possible  values
              are yes and no.

       (navigation-preview-size medium)

              Sets  the  size of the navigation preview available
              in the lower right  corner  of  the  image  window.
              Possible   values  are  tiny,  extra-small,  small,
              medium,  large,  extra-large,  huge,  enormous  and
              gigantic.

       (show-menubar yes)

              When  enabled,  the  menubar is visible by default.
              This can  also  be  toggled  with  the  "View->Show
              Menubar"  command.  Possible values are yes and no.

       (show-rulers yes)

              When enabled, the rulers are  visible  by  default.
              This  can  also  be  toggled  with  the "View->Show
              Rulers" command.  Possible values are yes and no.

       (show-scrollbars yes)

              When  enabled,  the  scrollbars  are   visible   by
              default.   This   can  also  be  toggled  with  the
              "View->Show Scrollbars" command.   Possible  values
              are yes and no.

       (show-statusbar yes)

              When  enabled, the statusbar is visible by default.
              This can also be toggled with the "View->Show  Sta­
              tusbar" command.  Possible values are yes and no.
               The color is specified in the form (color-rgba red
              green  blue  alpha)  with  channel values as floats
              between 0.0 and 1.0.

       (fullscreen-show-menubar no)

              When enabled, the menubar is visible by default  in
              fullscreen  mode. This can also be toggled with the
              "View->Show Menubar" command.  Possible values  are
              yes and no.

              ues are yes and no.

       (fullscreen-canvas-padding-mode custom)

              Specifies how the area around the image  should  be
              drawn when in fullscreen mode.  Possible values are
              default, light-check, dark-check and custom.

       (fullscreen-canvas-padding-color   (color-rgba    0.000000
       0.000000 0.000000 1.000000))

              Sets  the  canvas  padding  color  used   when   in
              fullscreen mode and the padding mode is set to cus­

              ues as floats between 0.0 and 1.0.
              black-only.

       (default-threshold 15)

              Tools  such  as  fuzzy-select  and bucket fill find
              regions based on a seed-fill algorithm.   The  seed
              fill starts at the intially selected pixel and pro­
              gresses in all directions until the  difference  of
              pixel intensity from the original is greater than a
              specified  threshold.  This  value  represents  the
              default threshold.  This is an integer value.

       (info-window-per-display no)

              When  enabled,  the  GIMP will use a different info
              window per image view.  Possible values are yes and
              no.

       (trust-dirty-flag no)

              When  enabled,  the GIMP will not save if the image
              is unchanged since opening it.  Possible values are
              yes and no.

              tain  a  suffix of 'B', 'K', 'M' or 'G' which makes

PATH EXPANSION

       Strings  of  type PATH are expanded in a manner similar to
       bash(1).  Specifically:  tilde  (~)  is  expanded  to  the
       user's home directory. Note that the bash feature of being
       able to refer to other user's home directories by  writing
       ~userid/ is not valid in this file.

       ${variable}  is  expanded to the current value of an envi­
       ronment variable.  There are a few variables that are pre-
       defined:

       gimp_dir
              The  personal  gimp  directory  which is set to the
              value of the environment  variable  GIMP2_DIRECTORY
              or to ~/.gimp-1.3.

       gimp_data_dir
              Nase  for  paths to shareable data, which is set to


FILES

       /etc/gimp/1.3/gimprc
              System-wide configuration file

       $HOME/.gimp-1.3/gimprc
              Per-user configuration file
