Is there a fix?
Hi all.  I am new to the forms because normally I can fix what is wrong with GIMP and get it to work with my computer. However, I finally took the plunge and downloaded 2.10 today. Thankfully I kept the older version on my computer as there's a lot wrong with the new version.

I am running a mac with mojave 10.14.3  After installing gimp, I moved the icon to the application folder and launched the application. It says "Varifying Gimp 2.10..." and stays that way about 5 minutes, then I get an error message that says "Gimp 2.10 can't be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed" I have to go to system prefs and accept through security tab.  Usually, I only have to do this once, and then I'm good to go. So far, I've opened gimp 3 times, and had to enter security 3 times.

Gimp 2.8 didn't take this long to open, I don't have a lot of custom fonts, or brushes. I would like to get rid of some of the symbol fonts because I never use them. Not sure this would help.

What can I do to make gimp open quicker, and get rid of the "cannot be opened" problem? All the stuff that worked before, or works with other applications, don't appear to work with 2.10.  Thanks
There is a thread about some problems running Gimp on a Mac.

As far as I know, it is not so much an issue with Gimp but with the policies put in place by Apple, unverified software etc. If you search then this type of problem is not recent, reports go many years back.

Fixes are various, Every time Apple issues a new update the rules change. This the most recent fix I can find. about Mojave and 3 months ago.
