I installed gimp while on version 15.10 and it worked fine and now after a long time when I tried to open it after upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, it fails to open and a pop comes saying it has crashed.

I tried reinstalling from the terminal and from software center both times it installed fine but just wont open.

When I tried to open it from the terminal I got -

gimp: /build/beignet-5qGeBM/beignet-1.1.1/src/intel/intel_driver.c:140: intel_driver_context_init: Assertion `driver->ctx' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

Can anybody help me?


I had the same problem after triying to compile another program, gimp stop working, the problem for me was the library ocl-icd-opencl-dev i just unninstalled and problem solve, gimp works again.
