Your posts about getting porteus to run in XFCe should go in Other -> Unsupported Software.
Unfortunately, I don't think I can offer much help for your GIMP module...

Ok, maybe I can help with GIMP...
Try this module: EDIT: LINK REMOVED--see links on later post, to updated modules.
For porteus v09 64-bit edition.
I'll convert it to .xzm on reboot and try it in v1.0 alpha 64-bit.
For me, it runs from the application menu. It also runs from the command line (gimp-2.6) but gives an error message:
(gimp-2.6:3757): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp-2.6: gimp_wire_read(): error
not sure what the problem is there...I haven't tried editing any photos with it yet, so let me know if this error happens for you and if it breaks the program.
I built this with slackyd. I updated slackyd (slackyd -u), then checked dependencies (slackyd -d) to figure out which packages porteus was missing w/out gimp installed. I then downloaded the gimp .txz package (slackyd -g gimp), copied it from /var/slackyd to /porteus/optional, right clicked to convert it to a module, activated the module, and ran slackyd -d again. This prompted me to download missing dependency packages, which I did (except for those that were listed the first time I ran slackyd -d), copied, converted, and activated all of those packages, and ran slackyd -d again, to install some deps that didn't come with the first set. Once I had all deps converted to modules and had gimp running, I moved all of the required modules to a subfolder and merged them together using porteus-module-tools.

FYI, this module does not work in v1.0 alpha. I converted it from .lzm to a directory in v09, and then into .xzm in v01, and got missing dependency errors, it looks like I'll have to build it new for v01. I don't have time today, but if you get alpha up and running and would like help with this, let me know.

FYI, if you've downloaded this module, it will only work if placed in /porteus/modules, so that it gets activated at startup. If I get the issue sorted out, I'll post a new module.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!
