    Gimp 2.8 not launching, instead opens software center

    Upgraded to Gimp 2.8 a few moments ago.

    And have a peculiar problem.

    When I click on the Gimp icon to start gimp it takes me to Gimp in the software center instead of launching the app.

    When I type gimp in terminal it woks fine.

    Any ideas?

    Did you install gimp 2.8 from PPA? I used this one and it works ok here.

    Code:
    ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp

    One thing you could try.

    1. Remove GIMP icon from launcher via right click - unlock.

    2. Run gimp from command line.

    3. Right click of running GIMP icon in launcher - lock to launcher.
