Installing GIMP to a thumb drive?

Post#1 by enxio27 » 12 Jan 2022, 18:45


Is it possible to install GIMP to a thumb drive for use on a computer for which I don't have admin rights (can't install software)? If so, how do I go about it?

Thanks! It tells me to download a "flatpakref" file, which Windows doesn't know what to do with. Looks like a Linux thing. The "how to install" video is no help, either.

I would keep away from that site: Both the Windows and the Linux versions share the same link - to the linux flatpak If they make that simple error, what else is there ?

Two sources for the latest Windows Gimp 2.10.30

https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_ ... p_portable AFAIK this is 64 bit only

https://samjcreations.blogspot.com/2021 ... 21030.html this comes as 2-in-1 both 32 bit and 64 bit with various language launchers. A bit on the large side but very good.
