There's a bug where the scripts don't get installed on a 64-bit system. Instead of <prefix>/lib64/gimp/plug-ins/* they're installed in <prefix>/lib/gimp/plug-ins/

I filed it on github @

Quick and dirty solution: move the Python scripts from one dir to another and restart Gimp (if it was running).

Wow. Wow. Wow
We are submitting a request to participate at Google Summer of Code 2013 very soon and encourage students to contact us early, so that we could get to know each other better.

Marek Dvoroznak did so and suggested to implement a new deformation tool. He already did part of the work (not for GIMP yet), so there's a video that compares Cage Transform tool with his method.

While at this point we cannot say if Marek will be working with us (at the very least, not until we are approved as a mentoring organization, and that's going to take weeks), this is a great illustration of qualities we are looking for in potential students: early contact (green flag for good communication skills), prior programming experience, understanding what's good for users.

I think this post makes great points.  And I do think that someone (like Lennart) needs to come along and design a new solution that solves all the problems, rather than just hoping that someone else will come up with one.  The problem is getting the uptake in the applications.

anyway to force light/dark mutter theme in gnome3?

I'm also interested for a few reasons.

One reason, in addition to yours: We've had many requests for this with regard to the Firefox theme. It doesn't make sense to have a dark one if the GTK+2-visually-copied widgets and the GNOME 3 titlebar are also not dark (in addition to custom widgets we'd make).
