G'MIC is unable to install in the latest version of GIMP 2.10.32

OK. So, I had some new issues with GIMP which caused constant crashes no matter what I did, SO I uninstalled everything and then installed GIMP 2.10.32. Now GIMP is stable, but I cannot figure out how to get G’MIC to work again and I use it a LOT. I have spent hours trying to troubleshoot and follow YouTube tutorials on how to fix it but to no avail. I can install the program, but when I open GIMP it acts as if the plugin is broken and only shows it grayed out with gears in front of the G’MIC entry in the drop down. a couple of other plugins that ship with GIMP are also grayed out. What am I doing wrong?

Hi @jack_bean, and welcome!

Operating system?
From where did you obtain the software?

Have fun!

Welcome @jack_bean!
Forgive the following Level One Tech Support question: Did you open/started a new image? The G’MIC-qt plugin remains ghosted and unresponsive until there is at least one image layer loaded. I know, a very basic thing, but I’ve Been There and Done That: thinking G’MIC is broken because I didn’t load an image first.

Also, as @Claes suggests: some details would help. A small narrative of what you tried, what you expected and what you got would help. Screen shots too. Some environmental information: your computer, your operating system, how much RAM you have. We can sherlock for you, but need some clues. Thanks! and Welcome!

I don’t know why I didn’t think of that. Usually when I open GIMP, I just reload the file is was working on so I didn’t even think about that. I guess I figured it out on accident because it just started working again yesterday. Thanks.
