As usual, the up-to-date packages can be downloaded from Releases · aferrero2707/gimp-appimage · GitHub.



Works just fine. Thank you!

The latest release fixes my mouse issue ! :partying_face: :tada: :confetti_ball:

Glad to know! I must say that this is entirely a merit of the GIMP developers.

Thank you for the Appimage it’s working really fine and saves me a lot of troubles when updating version!

I’m using it with Ubuntu Mate 64 bit 18.04.1, i have a little problem with the icon that isn’t

in the menus.

I attach a screenshot. This happens with every mate theme, being it Cupertino or traditional or redmond.

Thank you in advance.

Happy to hear that!

I will investigate the icon problem, I have created an issue on GitHub not to forget about it: Missing menu icon under Ubuntu · Issue #25 · aferrero2707/gimp-appimage · GitHub

This happens also with lubuntu 14.04.5 .

Screenshot attached (the first gimp entry is the one from ubuntu repos, the one without icons the appimage)

Hi, i am using GIMP_AppImage-release-2.10.8-withplugins-x86_64.AppImage from Releases · aferrero2707/gimp-appimage · GitHub .

I was trying to add grain via G’MIC, but seems it isn’t possible to do so. I get a preview timeout.

Thank you in advance.

Is this the only GMIC filter that doesn’t work for you? Ping @David_Tschumperle for possible know issues?

No, have same issue with film emulations also. G’MIC from GIMP_AppImage-release-2.10.8-withplugins-x86_64.AppImage:

G’MIC from GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20190228-x86_64.AppImage:

and G’MIC from ppa otto-kesselgulasch/gimp:

I think this is a problem with appimage.

sorry I forgot to say that I use Kubuntu 18.04.

@David_Tschumperle do you have any idea what could be the reason for the preview timeout that @s7habo is reporting? Or how to investigate it?

@David_Tschumperle, @Carmelo_DrRaw:

in the G’MIC settings dialog you can set timeout, but it doesn’t work. No matter what value I set, I immediately get timeout message.

Do other settings work, or are all of them ignored?

Other settings work (changed preview layout, theme and logos):

By the way, I noticed that your GIMP AppImage is much faster than Otto’s ppa or flatpak version. So I prefer to use your AppImage. :wink:

Nice work! :1st_place_medal:

sorry for spamming but I’ve just experimented a little bit and I notice that every time I select a filter or LUT from the list, the “Update filters” button becomes active as well. Where does G’MIC get its filters from? Are they stored locally or does he go to the internet every time?

I have now tried all LUTs and except (Expired) all Instant Consumer LUTs work. All Instant Pro LUTs work too. For all others I get timeout.

Notice: I always update filters before I start to work with G’MIC!

I really don’t know for the moment… let’s wait until @David_Tschumperle has a chance to read this messages, I hope he can shed some light!


I have tried again but for me no lut is working (only seems to work if you don’t choose the preset and leave it to none).

And also grain.

Seems that it is impossible to download preset, maybe to a read only tmp dir for g’mic downloads? Or maybe to g’mic now a bit old version?

I attach a screenshot.

I don’t know if it will make a difference, but the current version is 2.4.5. You have a pre-release version of 2.4.3
