Building GIMP documentation

To contribute to the documentation, you can also build the documentation website .

It uses docbook that requires some software, such as:

  • gettext
  • automake
  • docbook2odf
  • pngcrush
  • pngnq
  • docbook-xsl
  • docbook-utils
  • dblatex

Now, to build the documentation:

 git clone --depth=0 git@gitlab.gnome.org:GNOME/gimp-help.git
 cd gimp-help
 # Set this variable to your own language. It should correspond to a directory in the "po" source folder.
 export LINGUAS=en
 ./autogen.sh [--without-gimp ALL_LINGUAS="en"]
 make
 make pdf-local
