NAME

       gimprc - gimp configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       The  gimprc file is a configuration file read by GIMP when it starts up.  There are two of
       these:   one   system-wide   one   stored   in   /etc/gimp/2.0/gimprc   and   a   per-user
       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/GIMP/2.10/gimprc which may override system settings.

       Comments are introduced by a hash sign (#), and continue until the end of the line.  Blank
       lines are ignored.

       The gimprc file associates values with properties.  These properties may be set  by  lisp-
       like assignments of the form:

              (property-name value)

       where:

       property-name
                 is one of the property names described below.

       value     is the value the property is to be set to.

       Either spaces or tabs may be used to separate the name from the value.

PROPERTIES

       Valid properties and their default values are:

       (temp-path "${gimp_temp_dir}")

              Sets  the folder for temporary storage. Files will appear here during the course of
              running GIMP.  Most files will disappear when GIMP exits, but some files are likely
              to  remain,  so it is best if this folder not be one that is shared by other users.
              This is a single folder.

       (swap-path "${gimp_cache_dir}")

              Sets the swap file location. GIMP uses a tile based memory allocation scheme.   The
              swap  file  is  used  to  quickly and easily swap tiles out to disk and back in. Be
              aware that the swap file can easily get very large  if  GIMP  is  used  with  large
              images.  Also, things can get horribly slow if the swap file is created on a folder
              that is mounted over NFS.  For these reasons, it may be desirable to put your  swap
              file in "/tmp".  This is a single folder.

       (swap-compression "fast")

              The  compression  method  used  for  tile  data stored in the swap file.  This is a
              string value.

       (num-processors 1)

              Sets how many threads GIMP should use for operations that support it.  This  is  an
              integer value.

       (tile-cache-size 2g)

              When  the amount of pixel data exceeds this limit, GIMP will start to swap tiles to
              disk.  This is a lot slower but it  makes  it  possible  to  work  on  images  that
              wouldn't  fit into memory otherwise.  If you have a lot of RAM, you may want to set
              this to a higher value.  The integer size can contain a suffix of 'B', 'K', 'M'  or
              'G'  which  makes  GIMP  interpret the size as being specified in bytes, kilobytes,
              megabytes or gigabytes. If no suffix  is  specified  the  size  defaults  to  being
              specified in kilobytes.

       (use-opencl no)

              When enabled, uses OpenCL for some operations.  Possible values are yes and no.

       Specifies the language to use for the user interface.  This is a string value.

       (interpolation-type cubic)

              Sets  the  level  of  interpolation  used  for  scaling  and other transformations.
              Possible values are none, linear, cubic, nohalo and lohalo.

       (default-threshold 15)

              Tools such as fuzzy-select and bucket  fill  find  regions  based  on  a  seed-fill
              algorithm.   The seed fill starts at the initially selected pixel and progresses in
              all directions until the difference of pixel intensity from the original is greater
              than  a  specified threshold. This value represents the default threshold.  This is
              an integer value.

       (plug-in-path "${gimp_dir}/plug-ins:${gimp_plug_in_dir}/plug-ins")

              Sets the plug-in search path.  This is a colon-separated list of folders to search.

       (undo-levels 5)

              Sets the minimal number of operations that can be undone. More undo levels are kept
              available until the undo-size limit is reached.  This is an integer value.

       (undo-size 1g)

              Sets  an upper limit to the memory that is used per image to keep operations on the
              undo stack. Regardless of this setting, at least as many undo-levels as  configured
              can be undone.  The integer size can contain a suffix of 'B', 'K', 'M' or 'G' which
              makes GIMP interpret the size as being specified in bytes, kilobytes, megabytes  or
              gigabytes.  If  no  suffix  is  specified  the  size defaults to being specified in
              kilobytes.

       (undo-preview-size large)

              Sets the size of the previews in the  Undo  History.   Possible  values  are  tiny,

              Sets whether GIMP should create previews of layers and channels.  Previews  in  the
              layers  and  channels  dialog  are  nice to have but they can slow things down when
              working with large images.  Possible values are yes and no.

       (group-layer-previews yes)

              Sets whether GIMP should create previews of layer groups. Layer group previews  are
              more expensive than ordinary layer previews.  Possible values are yes and no.

       (layer-preview-size medium)

              Sets  the  preview  size  used  for  layers  and  channel previews in newly created
              dialogs.  Possible values are tiny, extra-small, small, medium, large, extra-large,
              huge, enormous and gigantic.

       (thumbnail-size normal)

              Sets the size of the thumbnail shown in the Open dialog.  Possible values are none,
              normal and large.

       (thumbnail-filesize-limit 4M)

              The thumbnail in the Open dialog will be automatically updated if  the  file  being
              previewed is smaller than the size set here.  The integer size can contain a suffix
              of 'B', 'K', 'M' or 'G' which makes GIMP interpret the size as being  specified  in
              bytes,  kilobytes,  megabytes  or  gigabytes.  If  no  suffix is specified the size
              defaults to being specified in kilobytes.

PATH EXPANSION

       Strings of type PATH are expanded in a manner similar to bash(1).  Specifically: tilde (~)
       is expanded to the user's home directory. Note that the bash  feature  of  being  able  to
       refer to other user's home directories by writing ~userid/ is not valid in this file.

       ${variable}  is expanded to the current value of an environment variable.  There are a few
       variables that are pre-defined:

       gimp_dir
              The personal gimp directory which is set to the value of the  environment  variable
              GIMP2_DIRECTORY or to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/GIMP/2.10.

       gimp_data_dir
              Base  for  paths  to  shareable  data, which is set to the value of the environment
              variable GIMP2_DATADIR or to the compiled-in default value ${datarootdir}/gimp/2.0.

       gimp_plug_in_dir
              Base to paths for architecture-specific plug-ins and modules, which is set  to  the
              value  of  the  environment  variable GIMP2_PLUGINDIR or to the compiled-in default
              value /usr/lib/gimp/2.0.

       gimp_sysconf_dir
              Path to configuration files, which is set to the value of the environment  variable
              GIMP2_SYSCONFDIR or to the compiled-in default value /etc/gimp/2.0.

       gimp_cache_dir
              Path  to  cached  files,  which  is  set  to  the value of the environment variable
              GIMP2_CACHEDIR or to the system default for per-user cached files.

       gimp_temp_dir
              Path to temporary files, which is set to the  value  of  the  environment  variable
              GIMP2_TEMPDIR or to the system default for temporary files.

FILES

       /etc/gimp/2.0/gimprc
              System-wide configuration file

       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/GIMP/2.10/gimprc
              Per-user configuration file
