OK, I think I have everything sorted out. After a lot of
uninstalling, deleting, and recompiling, I got gimp-2.6 to work.
However, I'm still getting:
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".
I get this when loading Inkscape as well. They both seem to run fine
other than this. Anyone know where this issue might be coming from?
