    Gimp doesn't start

    Fresh install of Kubuntu 11.04 amd64.
    Gimp doesn't start from the menu.

    From command line, it gives this error message.
    Code:
    (gimp:6702): GLib-WARNING **: /build/buildd/glib2.0-2.28.6/./glib/goption.c:2132: ignoring no-arg, optional-arg or filename flags (8) on option of type 0
    Segmentation fault
    Is this a bug, or something I can fix?

    TIA

    Peter

    Re: Gimp doesn't start

    It's a bug; #742516 at launchpad.
    There is a workaround at Launchpad;
    - change GTK+appearance to Rayleigh
    - start Gimp and stop it
    - change GTK+ appearance back to oxygen.

    This seems to work for me.
