gimp GEGL error
« on: 2021/03/17, 17:29:56 »
Today when trying to open gimp I had the following error:

"GEGL operation missing!

GIMP requires the GEGL operation "gegl:introspect".
This operation cannot be found. Check your
GEGL install and ensure it has been compiled
with any dependencies required for GIMP."

(It would not start.)  This must be somewhat recent, since I am sure I used gimp a few weeks back.

Googling around I found that installing "graphiviz" fixed the problem.  It seems to be working so far.  (Shouldn't it then be a dependency?)

Code: [Select]
# apt policy gimp
  Installed: 2.10.22-2
  Candidate: 2.10.22-2

        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Code: [Select]
# apt install graphviz

I use gimp every day and it wouldn't come up on any of my systems a few days ago. Checked debian bugs and it was already reported with a fix.

Thanks for pointing it out!  Googled failed me (as I did try to find this).  Maybe I should have gone straight to bugs.debian.org.

Installing graphviz solves the problem.

Edit: Changelog 2.10.22-3
* debian/control.in: Add graphviz to the dependencies.
    Some optional functionality of libgegl used in gimp now requires the dot
    executable shipped in the graphviz package (Closes: #985317)
