Trying to open a PSD file in Gimp, I get this message:

Opening '/home/neils/Downloads/file.psd' failed:
Error loading PSD file: No such file or directory

The terminal output reads:

(gimp:2785): GLib-WARNING **: (/build/buildd/glib2.0-2.32.3/./glib/gerror.c:390):g_error_new_valist: runtime check failed: (domain != 0)

Actually I can open PSD files on Gimp before. Anybody faced this before? I would be thankful for any tips.

This for Gimp version 2.6.12 and Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS.

What version of Ubuntu? What version of Gimp? – CoalaWeb Oct 27 '12 at 9:34
Gimp version: 2.6.12 Ubuntu version: Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS – neils Oct 27 '12 at 10:36
Maybe something's wrong in the file: I tried another PSD file and it opens correctly. The warning message doesn't show either. – neils Oct 27 '12 at 10:48
Yeah sounds like it might be the file, do you have access to a system with Photoshop to check? – CoalaWeb Oct 27 '12 at 11:10
Yea I'll check later on another computer. Thank you very much for your help anyway. – neils Oct 27 '12 at 11:15
