Per chi vuole usare GIMP come strumento per disegnare è fondamentale usare la patch for painter. L’installazione è semplice, basta applicarla al sorgente (versione 2.6.11) con il comando

patch -p1 < git-painter--20100627.diff

Il file slackbuild è presente su GitHub

Poi si deve applicare il GIMP Paint Studio (GPS) prendendelo da slackbuild.org.

Per usare al meglio lo schermo con programmi come GIMP,  ho configurato due monitor sulla scheda grafica NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570: un ASUS 23” e un ACER 19”. Le configurazioni su xorg.conf sono state ottenute da questa pagina e grazie al programma nvidia-setting distribuito insieme ai driver ufficiali NVIDIA
