Gimp will not open in P 9
« on: May 15, 2020, 09:55:40 am »
Hello Peppermint people. I just noticed this today, I am unable to open Gimp, the PCNetSpec version. If I try to open a document with Gimp or just try to open Gimp from the menu, I get a black rectangular screen flash just for a second and then it's gone. This happens with the 5.7 and the 5.3 kernels. Is anyone else having problems with PCNetSpec's version of Gimp? Not sure if I'm going to delete it and install from synaptic or what. Any ideas?
What was I thinking?

I am not a gimp user... will have to defer to others... unless you wanna hand me a link to his version to do a test install?

im using the appimage of 2.10.19 in peppermint 10 on the 5.3 kernel, crashes occasionally but otherwise fine.  you can download it below
just right click it, go into properties and permissions tab and enable the execution if its not done already. itll ask you to integrate to the menu i usually dont but you can if you want.

For wallpapers ive made you can download them here

Why not just use the one in Synaptic? I know you'd rather use PCNetSpec's version. Maybe upgrade to Pep 10 Re-Spin would solve it? I mainly use what's in Synaptic and the 2.8 version has never failed me. I don't like 2.10 as a lot of stuff had been removed, like create logos, buttons etc.  ;D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

GIMP 2.8.22 under Pep10 respin works fine on my antiquated and inadequate hardware. I installed it, iirc, from the Software Manager.

@alynur: Are there error messages if you start gimp from the terminal with the command "gimp"?

I just booted up P 9 and before I went to the terminal to check for errors, I went into the menu and opened Gimp. It started right up, I don't know why, at least on my desktop. I haven't checked the laptop yet but both were doing the same thing. I'm thinking it may have been a recent update that caused a conflict and then a more recent update solved it? I don't know. I'll comment again after I check the laptop.
I also have P 10R in the desktop and that always worked. There was a reason I wanted to keep P 9 but at the moment I don't remember it.
What was I thinking?

Today I checked Gimp in my laptop and it opened right up. It must have been a problem with something that was updated and caused a dependancy issue which was solved by a subsequent update. At any rate it's working again. Weird.  :-\
