GIMP error opening file, but it does...

I’ve been having this error for a good while now, and it seems to be just a visual error, since I’m not noticing any problems and I can open, work and save my files just fine.

However it’s a bit annoying. This is happening with both the stable and dev versions of GIMP.


If you grep -F "%U" in your Gimp profile (likely ~/.config/GIMP/2.10) do you get any hits?

I’ll give this a try when I get home.

No, it just gives me a blinking cursor and nothing else.

Well, that capital %U is any files passed as parameters to Gimp as in the .desktop file

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=gimp-2.10 %U

Is it possibly a language setting or maybe an association issue ? What type of Gimp? self-compiled / flatpack / snap / or from repo ?

I’m not sure what I shoud respond here…

The Arch package from the official extra repositories.

I was thinking along the lines of file or folder names containing accented characters and the association somehow failing. Otherwise, very strange.
