My gmic scripts are running either very slowly, or not at all (just hanging). The scripts were running fine yesterday, but it’s a different story today. I suspect this morning’s system update may have broken something that gmic relies on, but I do not know what may have broken or how to fix it.
I’m running gmic 3.1.3 under Arch Linux.
My gmic jobs are quite simple e.g. Sorting pixels:
gmic infile.jpg fx_pixelsort 1,0,2,1,0,100,0,0,0 output outfile.jpg` [gmic]-0./ Start G'MIC interpreter. [gmic]-0./ Input file 'input/junk.png' at position 0 (1 image 3072x4080x1x3).
just hangs appears to hang for several minutes before starting execution, but yesterday would run immediately and in a few seconds.
There is no shortage of system resources. PC has 16Gb RAM with only 3.2Gb used, so it’s not a shortage of memory. There’s plenty of disk space. Even after a reboot with no other Applications running, the script just crawls instead of running immediately and quickly. Something is not right.
I’m sorry that this is such a vague question … but currently the gmic cli is not usable for me and I don’t know what I can do to improve the situation. Does anyone have a similar experience?
