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:


This happens also with lubuntu 14.04.5 .
