GIMP 2.10 - does your version of GIMP still have 'Crash Detection'???

Submitted by Kevin.York on January 7, 2019 - 9:35pm

I am referring to this message from the GIMP TEAM:

With the debugging system in place to detect a crash, it was easy enough to add crash recovery. In case of a crash, GIMP will now attempt to backup all images with unsaved changes, then suggest to reopen them the next time you start the application.

GIMP debug files have been removed to save install space. They can be copied from a local 32-bit install for debugging purposes.

GIMP 2.10 - Where are the GIMP temp files be stored (for the PAF version)???

Submitted by Kevin.York on January 7, 2019 - 9:21pm

GIMP 2.10 claims that it can (try to) recover images upon restarting after a crash.
However, restarting the PAF version gives a message saying that "GIMP was not closed properly on the last time it ran and needs to clean up"
(or something like that).

So, I'm guessing that your standard clean up is preventing the file recovery.

[Bug] GIMP - Python scripts do not load or run. (GIMP 2.10.X on Win 7 Pro 64bit)

Submitted by Kevin.York on January 7, 2019 - 8:55pm

When you start GIMP, you will see it discover and initialize plugins, etc.
On a local installation of GIMP, you will see some Python stuff and (when the GUI is up) you will see:

  • Filters>Python-Fu>Console
  • Filters>Python-Fu>Console-extended
  • (...and any scripts you've added)

On all of the PAF versions of GIMP 2.10-??; this has always been missing.

GIMP 2.10.8 Crashes when manipulating files.

Submitted by rogerard on December 13, 2018 - 5:34am

I'm unable to create new or open existing files without having GIMP crash. Also, I can paste as layers into a new image or as a new image itself just fine, but when I go to either save or export it, GIMP will crash.

For troubleshooting, I executed it using the --verbose command and piped the output to a file. Here is the output:

I upgraded to the latest portable version of gimp 2.10.8 yesterday. However the program will not start at all. i click on the start menu item ( or even execute the exec directly ) and nothing happens. i even did a fresh install and still nothing. 2.10.6 works ok i still have it on another usb.

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.
