    Help on Downloading GIMP

    Lol I'm not a tech guy. I need help on downloading a GIMP program for computer. I tried to download the newest version of it and it won't work even after I unzip it and install it. Maybe I'm using the wrong version for Windows. I have a computer that uses Windows 98(I know I should upgrade to XP or something) so I hope that helps.

    Read Magical Detective Daisuke. Part 9 is finally out! Click here to read it! For the complete collection of Magical Detective Daisuke click here.

    You will have to download the runtime environment from the same website and install that FIRST. After that it should work

    The .tar and .gz files can only be available to open if you have a program to do so. I suggest using WinRAR for that.

    # How do I install The Gimp?
    # You will need to download both *GTK+ Runtime Environment and *The GIMP installers. Install GTK+ before installing The Gimp.
    # I use Windows 98/ME and GIMP crashes on startup. What can I do?
    # This is a known problem if you installed GTK+ 2.6.4. Please uninstall it (through Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs), and then install either GTK+ 2.6.7 or GTK+ 2.4.14.
