A few weeks ago, Gimp was working fine, then I tried to open it, the icon flashes away a bit, and then closes again, one time there appeared a dialog which told me that Gimp had unexpectedly closed, and I could choose wether I wanted to restart the program or leave it closed. Restarting had no effect.

Then I started Gimp via terminal, and got this output:

The last half are errors from a theme I had installed.

I have tried reinstalling, purging the installation via terminal and via Synaptic, but I still get the same result.

Running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

  • Is it working ok? – George Udosen Jul 3 '17 at 17:51
  • Actually no window is opened at all.. – Peetah Jul 3 '17 at 18:21

Seems that you installed an icon pack or theme that doesn't let you run gimp if that's the case don't use that theme and report it to the creator.

Try deleting gimp and reinstalling it with

sudo apt-get purge gimp --auto-remove

then just delete the Gimp config files

rm -rf .gimp-2.8/

and reinstall it

sudo apt-get install gimp

let me know if this worked, hope this helps

  • Weird, I thought that purging the program would remove the .gimp-2.8/ folder. Anyways, it worked like a charm, thank you very much for a really quick answer! – Peetah Jul 3 '17 at 18:26
  • glad to help :) – Egon Stetmann. Jul 3 '17 at 18:27
  • Actually, just purging the .gimp-2.8/ folder is enough in 99% of the cases. It is even bettre to just rename it, so that some of its contents can be added back to the new profile. – xenoid Aug 12 '18 at 20:11
