I have a font folder for Gimp both under the "Program" folder and in

Gimp to read fonts from the windows font folder but with no success.
shouldn't it be enough to have just the C:\windows\fonts folder?
I don't see what you need this 're-directing' for. Is it possible to
set symbolic links in Win XP?
I recently read in Slashdot that it's possible with servers, but not triv-
ially so. It is now under development as they have just 'invented' the
concept. I suggest that the OP uses an existing font, renames it and em-
beds it in the fonts directory to 'fool' the GIMP.

What's the Whimp theme?
I think he means the 'WIMP' theme. Windows Impersonator
I wonder if it's a widget thing. I would have thought that it meant Win-
dows Image Manipulation Programs, like LAMP/WAMP. Either way, stripping
off plug-ins and enhancements *before* attempting a first launch is worth-
while. Take one step at a time.
