    So today I installed gimpshop on my mac running 10.5.5 leopard. Only to realize once I open it up it crashes... I'm sure this isn't a problem with x11 because the regular gimp works fine... So, is there a way to fix this?
    I've searched everywhere and haven't found a solution.

    hi diegohuyke. I also have the same problems when I run GimpShop on my leopard 10.5.5. I did some research and came up with this

    in short GimpShop isn't based on the newest version of Gimp and so it doesn't work with the X11 in leopard. That's also why Gimp works but Gimpshop is a no go.

    if you go to http://plasticbugs.com/?p=241 and look at the old news with comments, you'll see there are some people asking when Gimpshop will be up for leopard. No word yet.

    I'm bummed too. I might try Seashore or just stick with the original Gimp.
