Gimper 1.6

A tool meant to be used together with The GIMP.
Gimper is a new graphic tool meant to be used together with The GIMP. When it is set up correctly, it allows the GIMP toolbox to have an "autohide" behavior.

It displays a thin image at the left side of the screen and activates the GIMP toolbox whenever you hover over it with the mouse. This is useful when the "Focus Follows Mouse" policy is set with the "Auto raise" option for the window manager.

Since the window of Gimper is not managed by the WM, and it is always on top it can be used even when The GIMP is in Fullscreen mode.

By double clicking Gimper you can launch The GIMP if it's not running already. To close Gimper simply click on it with your right mouse button.
