    Question Compiling GIMP so no decimal numbers are used

    Gimp 2.8 series has this ridiculous way to handle the values of the scrollbars with decimal numbers when they are not even required, there is no difference between the size of a brush with 1.05 or 1.40 whatsoever, so:

    How can i achieve this?



    what files do i need to modify in the source to disable decimal values?

    If there is no difference, then why bother?

    cause well, you can scroll 10 times with your mouse wheel to reach from 1 to 1.10 or you can scroll 10 times to go from 1 to 10, so just guess what would be more practical for the size of brushes ans stuff

    Mmmh... You know, there's such a thing as a minimum step. If you remove decimals, the step doesn't magically become larger. You just lose precision. It's all down to math, mate

    By the way, you can drag fast depending on position of the pointer above the slider.

    That slider will be reworked in the future anyway.
