Issue with GIMP 2.10.6 - shortcut icon problem and solution

Submitted by 2RANbit on September 8, 2018 - 11:58am

I wanted to use GIMP 2.10.6, but after I installed it, there was no desktop icon shortcut. So I tried again - and this time, I saw what the problem was:
The default installation has no implied shortcut(!)
If you're looking for it, chose the "Customize" option. Somewhere along that line, check the "create desktop icon" box. After the installation is finished on that path, the icon should appear on your desktop screen.

First, it is great to fscPortable (Fast Stone Capture) added to the suite.
Just one question, why is the Video Capture (Screen Cast) is missing from this edition?

Thank You.

[Closed] GIMP won't save or open/import after 2.10 update

[Duplicate of Gimp 2.10 unable to save, export, or import - mod JTH]


This is my first time posting in this forum.
I have a huge issue after the 2.10 update. Now, GIMP will not save ANY files, and will only open XCF files.

Reproducing the issue:

- Open GIMP.
- Create a new document
- Try to save it.
When clicking the Save button, it turns grey, but nothing happens. The button will then not be pushed.
