How to install GIMPshop on Mac OS X 10.6.3 (Snow Leapord)

One of the best open source image editor around is GIMP. It similar to Photoshop but of course, it hard to beat the real one. Anyways, a lot of people mentioned that its interface its hard to use. So, somebody modified GIMP and GIMPshop was born. Taken from their website

GIMPshop is a modification of the free/open source GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), intended to replicate the feel of Adobe Photoshop. Its primary purpose is to make users of Photoshop feel comfortable using GIMP.

However, its been a while since they updated their application. So, there are no new version released. This means that it will not be compatible with new mac OS X. I myself is on Mac OS X 10.6.3.

I did some research and found some answer on how to install it on Snow Leopard .

Here how it works. Install the app from their website. And when you open it for the first time, it will crash. The reason are the fontconfig and iconv libraries distributed with GIMPshop are not compatible with the current X11 environment.

Ok.. First u have to built universal variant of Macports.

sudo port install libiconv +universal expat +universal freetype +universal zlib +universal fontconfig +universal

Then remove the offending libraries that come with GIMPshop and replace it with the new one. The library can be downloaded from this website.

sudo rm -f /Applications/*

sudo rm -f /Applications/*

sudo cp libfontconfig.1.dylib libiconv.2.dylib /Applications/

sudo ln -s /Applications/ /libraries/libfontconfig.dylib

sudo ln -s /Applications/ /libraries/libiconv.dylib

This commands should work with Snow Leopard.

Solution for sudo: port: command not found

I knew that there are many out there who encounter the same problem as me. I've seen galore of post in the forum but most of them are left with no answer. Sometimes the answer is too complicated to understand. So here is one simple solution for you who is searching for one.. I don't know whether it will works for you or not but at least it works for me.

I got this problem when i first install macports in my macbook. I'm using OS X10.6.3 (Snow leopard) After the installation, I tried to run this command:
   sudo port -v selfupdate

but I got this output:
   sudo: port: command not found

My macbook doesn't recognize any of my sudo command. I did some research on the internet and found a solution that works for me.

Add these 3 lines to your .bash_profile. If you don't have that file, you should have .profile file. To open the file, you should run this line on your terminal.
open .profile
Then add these lines to the file and save it.
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/bin
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/local/share/man
export INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/opt/local/share/info

After that r-esource the file and you're done.
source .profile

Happy trying!!!

Last weekend, located at Midvalley, there was a bowling tournament organized by Mr Sunnysideup for KLMU students and x-students. I didn't win anything though... but yeah, it was fun. It was like a reunion for my batch. The funny thing was most of my frenz can't recognize me at first. Yeah, I've changed.. a lot... I lose my weight, my beard and i started to keep my hair. Hopefully these changes are here to stay.. haha

Last weekend was kindda fun. It was Sayang Sofea's birthday. We had a small celebration at my in laws' and soon after that, we had steamboat dinner with my brother and sister. What I want to share here is actually the steamboat place. It was superb. That's the best steamboat place I've ever seen in my whole life. Stuffed with hundreds of choices and a wide varieties of seafood. Just name it, they have it.

Located next to the famous Sunway Pyramid, the place was packed with all kind of people but luckily we already made our reservation. Here are some sneak peak on what u can get there...

Now we've come to the money part. U think how much does all these cost??? RM49.90?? RM 39.90?? Nope.. The price is just at RM20.90 per adult and u can eat as much as want. It's quite cheap! One more thing u need to know before u set your foot to find this restaurant... This place is called Flaming Steamboat.

My work place was based in Bandar Baru Bangi before this but starting from today, they transfered everybody to the HQ which is in UPM. Days ago, u all have been told that my boss room is just behind me but now it's even worse. They put our team temporarily in one training room and everybody else desks are at my back. They can see everything that I do with my laptop.. whoaa.. stressed!!!

Furthermore, I feel like I'm getting bigger, fatter & flabbier. And that's the reason why I climbed up and down my apartment stairs for 2 days consecutively. 28th floor.. and I even did it 2-3 times in a day.. I even bought the organic rice which cost me more than 2 times of the normal rice as the organic rice only consists 1/6 carbohydrates and 1/2 calories as compare to the normal rice.

So these are the things that contribute to my level of stress..

One of the trainer of The Biggest Loser once said that to lose weight is easy but to maintain it is hard. It's true somehow. For the past 3 weeks, I have done no exercise at all. FYI, b4 this, I went to gym 5 days a week for the past 3 months and I can see the result after all my hard work. Now, I don't know whether I really have the time to workout anymore. Furthermore I'm working at a new place in Bdr Baru Bangi. So for now, I consider myself as taking a break.. hehe

Next week, I got to search for gym in my area. If u know any, do inform me :) I'm starting a new target for my weight. .. The former one has been achieved in 3 months time. My next target should be able to complete by end of February, hope so.. So, who's with me??? hehe

p/s : It's hard to control ur food intake when ur sitting in between of 2 devilish frens whose always pursuade u to go for lunch with them.. hehe

argghhhhh......... i'm 2 bz with my working life right now.. It's not that I have so much work to do, it's just that I can't update my facebook status, my blog and a lot more other things since the boss office is just behind my desk. So basically, I have to at least pretend that I'm 100% on the job. However, that doesn't mean that i don't do my job. Ialways completed my job accordingly but u know, sometimes i do need my own sweet time... hehe..

Hopefully this year will be as exciting as last year!!!! I know it's a bit late but still
