GMIC Testing - Reptorian - Picture Mosaic crashes
Hi all,

Trying to use the above mentioned GMIC filter results in a GMIC crash.
In the terminal I have this output:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Magick::ErrorMissingDelegate'
 what():  Magick: No decode delegate for this image format (/home/xxx/.ICEauthority) reported by magick/constitute.c:1535 (ReadImage)
/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/gmic-gimp-qt/gmic-gimp-qt: fatal error: Abgebrochen
QObject::~QObject: Timers cannot be stopped from another thread

System Information:

System:     Kernel: 4.15.0-62-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 7.4.0
          Desktop: MATE 1.22.0 wm: marco dm: LightDM Distro: Linux Mint 19.2 Tina
          base: Ubuntu 18.04 bionic
          GIMP 2.10.12 from Kesselgulasch-PPA, GMIC 2.7.1 from same  PPA

Does this happen to others as well?
I guess I can't do much about that, can I?

Where does ImageMagick 7 (IM7) come into this? Or maybe that is the 'magick' number used to identify the file type? - dont know. edit: guessing that is it.

I would be a bit dubious about the gmic-gimp-qt from Kesselgulasch-PPA It seems to be a dynamic version that links to the stand-alone gmic lib file. Not even David Tschumperle does that.

Not a filter I have used before but working here:

Using Kubuntu bionic / Gimp 2.10.12 from PPA but gmic_gimp_qt 2.7.1 from

Just a note about IM 6 / (maybe 7 ) from the repos. The file /etc/ImageMagick-6/policy.xml blocks certain formats typically pdf and the usual identify -list delegate gives what is used.
Thank you very much, Rich.
Using your compiled version now - and everything works fine.
