Question about GIMP GNU Image Manipulation Program

1 Answer

It keeps shutting down.

I've been using gimp for months now.. all of the sudden every time i try to use gimp in the middle of working it would just close without any form of a warning. i though uninstalling and reinstalling would maybe fix it. all it did is make it worst.. now with my freshly installed gimp it wont stay open for more than a few seconds. what can i do?

First of all, make sure you have enough ram (I know, it sounds stupid, but you'd be surprised). Also, you should uninstall GIMP, reboot and reinstall it ONLY FROM gimp.org! Nowhere else. This is a common problem and happens to all of us from time to time. You can find additional help at:

This is a common problem. Make sure you have the latest GIMP version (2.6.6). Uninstall gimp, reboot and then reinstall gimp ONLY from www.gimp.org. This should solve the problem.
