    GIMP 2.7.1 not remembering Single-window mode

    Every time I close GIMP it forgets the Single-window setting and I have to choose it again. I know version 2.7.1 of GIMP is really unstable and buggy. I was just wondering if anyone else is having this issue and if anyone found a work around for this?

    Opening recently closed docks/windows or the toolbox will crash gimp when in single-window mode, how nice.

    It's been pretty stable for me, I grabbed it from this PPA:

    https://launchpad.net/~matthaeus123/+archive/mrw-gimp-svn

    I see an entry for "(single-window-mode yes)" in ~/..gimp-2.7/gimprc, it just won't remember the Single-window mode setting after restart for some reason.

    That's where I grabbed it from too.

    I always try to remove old config files from the previous version of the software I'm upgrading. It might cure your crashing or it might not, give it a try.

    Same problem ... GIMP 2.7.1 does not remember single window mode at the moment.
    __________________________________________________ ______
    But since loading it from the same place as Psumi and yourself ....

    I have no crashing problems it used to lock up when leaving on my earlier version of it .....

    ( but not now I only get script errors on the Script-Fu addons and FxFoundary )
    Example ..... below ....
    Plug-In "script-fu"
    (/usr/local/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/script-fu)
    called deprecated procedure 'gimp-undo-push-group-start'.
    It should call 'gimp-image-undo-group-start' instead!

    The items I have done quick tests on in G'MIC seems to work ok though ....

    Regular array
    Faded array
    Mirrored array
    Image grid
    Rotated tiles
    Normalized tiles

    ( G'MIC - Everything in Arrays and Frames works for me .... still going through the list ..... )
    ( G'MIC - Everything in Artistic works for me ..... this is just for info ... so people will know ..... )
    Been through the full list in G'MIC ,,,, not had any problems .......



    If you run GIMP from a 'Konsole' window .... it will/should show the reason why its crashing .........





    Although it gives all the fatal errors at the beginning it still runs ..... and works .....
    guess it just does not load in the relative items .....

    I am experiencing the crashing problem too.

    I am going to unstall this and install the previous version.

    Re: GIMP 2.7.1 not remembering Single-window mode

    I quite like the options in both versions ,,,, single window is sometimes useful .....

    But a lot of the script files crash for other things that I use ....

    Therefore it would be nice to have two versions to run in the same desktop ......

    I can do it at the moment by virtual box or swapping systems .... but I wondered if there was

    a better way to do this ....

    ( I once downloaded the git files into a opt directory ..... but it still complained to run the two in the same desktop ........ one after the other .....

    (I don't need to run them together at the same time .... ) just to run individually one maybe now and the other for a different type of edit ..... )

    until the scripts are sorted out 2.7.1 is only half functional really ....... for me ...... but I do like it. ......
    its going to be excellent once completed ........ at 2.8 or 2.10 .....
