Hi all.
I'm switching from Gimp on Windows to a Mac.
(It's an older one, a G5 tower with Leopard only,
but it's nice to be back on a Mac again.)
Before I just download and install without
thinking, I thought I might ask anyone for
advice they might give for the best install for mac,
or perhaps any packages on mac that are better
or features not available on Windows, etc?
Thanks for any ideas.

I had problems getting it to run on this Mac, the 2nd time I installed it.
  I got no help/solutions from this list, nor the Gimp on OS X (might not be
quite the right name) website.

The folks that solved it were on Apple's X11 mailing list.

So, if you have trouble, and it looks like it might be X11, I'd think I'd go
to the X11 mailing list first, and make sure X11 is getting installed
correctly.

Actually you did get help. I even sent you a separate email asking if
you would be willing to test a beta built of 2.7.5.

I honestly don't remember that, Partha, so you have my apologies. I would not have taken you up on the offer, as I'd never used GIMP before, and honestly don't have the time to be a tester.

But, the problem turned out not to be Gimp, but X11 that was the problem. Once that was fixed, it has worked fine since.

Anyway, there is a thread on Gimpchat.com where you can check out the
current conversation on a beta build based on current carbon code in
2.7.5. Keep in mind that it does not have Mitch's blessings. :)
