I’ve installed gmic 2.1.9-2 on Arch Linux for a user; they’re already very familiar with gimp 2.8.22-1. On exploring the G’MIC Qt from gimp’s Filters menu, he found over time that the Available Filters list had some missing that were present before. How could this happen? If I open G’MIC Qt, having not used it before, they’re present.
Google found `the interface even offers a new mode for setting the visibility of the filters’ — https://pixls.us/blog/2017/06/g-mic-2-0/ but I haven’t found how to deliberately make a filter invisible, so that wasn’t a clue as to whether it could have been accidental and how to undo the action.
I do see the odd core dump from gimp over time; does G’MIC Qt mark a filter invisible if it detects gimp had a problem during its use?
The user has ~/.config/gmic/gmic_qt_visibility.dat that looks suggestive, but the `Hidden filters list (compressed)’ is just that, and Google finds nothing useful about it.
I’ve tried reading the fine manual, and the FAQ, but found nothing.
