I would try running gimp from the command line rather than from a

Desktop icon; you'll get more informative messages that way.

I would try running it as a different user. If it works for that user,

the problem is somewhere in your user directory. If it doesn't work for

that user, the problem is somewhere in the global gimp install/setup.


Yes, mv ~/.gimp* ~/.gimp.backup

Since GNOME3 is a PITA, take a look at gimp --help-gtk, anyway, at least start it by gimp --verbose

Tried gimp --verbose and it started up fine.

Looks like it was a sid temporary glitch
