Incomplete installation :( - Gimp 2.10/Linux Mint (Sylvia)
Hi all,

I followed the commands given at the Gimp web site (flatpak install, and flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP//stable)

Then the only one item I have been able to find is its shortcut in the main menu.

I did a search in the Terminal to no avail:

/home $ find /home GIMP
find: ‘GIMP’: No such file or directory

I also did a seach with the File Browser. I did find the .config dir, but there's no GIMP dir inside.

After using this new installation of Gimp some more, I found out that the filters do not do a thing!
I guess this might suggest that the installation did not include a plug ins folder. After all, I can't find the GIMP 2.10 dir anywhere. I wonder how's running this version.
I opened the properties window of the shortcut from the main menu. It shows this path:
/usr/bin/flatpak run --branch=stable --arch=x86_64 --command=gimp-2.10 --file-forwarding org.gimp.GIMP @@u %U @@

Any ideas?
/usr/bin/flatpak run --branch=stable --arch=x86_64 --command=gimp-2.10 --file-forwarding org.gimp.GIMP @@u %U @@

is correct.

You can also make your own launcher or run from a terminal using

flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP

The Gimp profile should be in the hidden folder ~/.var/app/org.gimp.GIMP/config/GIMP/2.10/

In my installation for whatever reason, the config files are there but no resource folders. I suspect this is a historic issue for my installation. The flatpak Gimp same as any other should copy resources from the old ~/.gimp-2.8 directory to the new one. Always a good idea to disable that before starting Gimp 2.10 for the first time. Delete that .../2.10/ folder to force a new default profile.

~/.var/app/org.gimp.GIMP/config/GIMP/2.10/ is such an awful place for brushes/plugins/.etc. no reason why you can not make your own set of folders and set the path in Gimp Edit -> Preferences.

edit: Can you check and see if you have a regular Gimp 2.10 profile  ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/ and if you have, what does it contain?
