Flatpak folder questions
#1
Where is this?  In preferences it claims the folder is in:
Home->.var->app->org.gimp.GIMP->config->Gimp->2.10

But I cannot open that place on my file browser.  I can as far as Home->.var->app->org.gimp.GIMP->config->Gimp
But there is no 2.10 folder.
Gimp cannot see anything that I place in there.  How in the world can I edit files like devicerc?

The 2nd "Gimp" is uppercase:

Code:
.var/app/org.gimp.GIMP/config/GIMP/2.10/devicerc

Okay, but even with it all uppercase, the location cannot be accessed, even when I navigate with my file manager.  If I try to open it in Gimp's preferences, I get this error:
   
I mean there is no default 2.10 folder that I have access to.

Even if I browse to that location, there is nothing in the 'GIMP' folder, and nothing I place in it is read by Gimp.

I have that empty folder in this kubuntu 16.04, I suspect that it is a hangover from the first installation. A brand new flatpak in my kubuntu 18.04 desktop has the entries.

Check and see if it made a regular ~/.config/GIMP/2.10 profile. There has to be somewhere for the gimp 'rc' configuration files even if there are no folders.

If you have that you might still have to add to the Gimp folders paths.

Might look like this.

Add the paths (1 ) and recommend one step further, make your own folders ( 2 ) in some convenient location.

Start the python-fu console, and enter print gimp.directory. What is the answer?

Yes, I have been able to create paths for things like palettes, gradients, brushes, etc. The problem is that I cannot edit the configuration files (like devicerc), nor can I specify a path to different ones. If I create a 2.10 folder and place configuration files in there, they are ignored.

Amazing how setups differ.

I get this as well

GIMP 2.10.6 Python Console
Python 2.7.12 (default, Feb 17 2018, 16:52:07)
[GCC 6.2.0]
>>> print gimp.directory
/home/rich/.var/app/org.gimp.GIMP/config/GIMP/2.10
>>>
(which is empty)

but it does not stop Gimp using ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/

Ok I feel stupid about this, but Rich is correct that "it does not stop Gimp using ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/"

That does indeed work, but I was obsessed with the /home/sam/.var/app/org.gimp.GIMP/config/GIMP/2.10 directory.

I've noticed that neither G'mic nor Bimp work in the 2.10.6 Flatpak. Those are sort of critical for me.
