Throughout the time that we have been online we have put several splash, both for Gimp, LibreOffice, etc. But let's explain everything well at once, what is Gimp and what is a splash?
Gimp is that counterpart, the alternative that those of us who prefer Free Software have to Photoshop, using Gimp in Linux gives us endless comforts. For example, it is included in the official repositories of our system (while to install Photoshop you must download it in any of its versions), we will always have the latest stable version of Gimp without having to search torrents, or deal with cracks, keygens or similar, or if we want to try development versions, it will not represent a problem either. As I told you, these are comforts that using Gimp on Linux has, which was for the OS that was intended at the beginning.
Gimp as Free Software that it is, in turn allows us many more things, we can customize it as much as we want (or know), at this moment I will show you how to change that image that appears when we open Gimp, the image of 'loading app', something like this:
Well, we can put an image like this:
Here are 3 splashes that you can use (this one included):
To put an image of these is simple, here are the steps:
1. First we must save it on our computer, right click on the one you like the most and save it in your Home or Personal Folder
2. Suppose you saved the last one in Home, it will be in ~ / gimp-splash_3.png right ?. We are going to open a terminal and in it we put:
sudo cp ~/gimp-splash_3.png /usr/share/gimp/2.0/images/gimp-splash.png
It will ask for your password and that's it.
That's all. I mean, the idea is copy the image they have in their home y replace with this to the Gimp splash, located in /usr/share/gimp/2.0/images/ with the name gimp-splash.png
This change the splash of an application is common in Linux environments, other applications such as Choqok, LibreOffice, Amarok, Clementine and K3B (among others) also allow us to change the image of 'loading' or 'loading', one of the many comforts we have to use free, open systems ^ _ ^
Anyway, I hope you found it interesting. Clarify that you can look for other splashes for Gimp (or other applications) in KDELook.org or GnomeLook.org
