Hi, I do not very frequently use gimp - onco or twice a month or so. So today I noticed an issue with gimp: it always crashes when using the clipboard (no matter if using it via menu or kbd shortcut). Copy, or cut makes Gimp crash.
and I don't see updates of gimp incoming.
Any ideas/confirmations?

[Edit: Installed is GIMP 2.7.3]

Are you using the latest version in Debian/Aptosid?
Greetings,
Chris

calling it from bash I get error output:

This is after just starting gimp:
      Code:

GIMP-Error: Calling error for procedure 'gimp-image-get-active-layer':
Procedure 'gimp-image-get-active-layer' has been called with an invalid ID for argument 'image'. Most likely a plug-in is trying to work on an image that doesn't exist any longer.

script-fu-Warning: Error while loading /home/hy/.gimp-2.7/scripts/exposure-blend.scm:

Most likely a plug-in is trying to work on an image that doesn't exist any longer.


This happens when using the clipboard:
      Code:

No, you have the frickelplatz version. Debian is 2.6.11.

      Code:
root@aptosidbox:/home/don# apt-cache policy gimp
gimp:
  Installed: 2.7.3~git20110707.frickel.1
  Candidate: 2.7.3~git20110707.frickel.1
  Version table:
 *** 2.7.3~git20110707.frickel.1 0
        500 http://frickelplatz.de/debian/ sid/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     2.6.11-3+b1 0
        500 http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages


But I don't have any such crashing here -- I just copied an image and pasted as new image. I use gimp weekly or daily and this one has been fine.

      Code:
don@aptosidbox:~$ infobash -v3

I removed frickelplatz from my sources list and reinstalled gimp incl. some libraries (gegl & libbab1...)
but the error persists:
      Code:

gimp:15101): GLib-WARNING **: /build/buildd-glib2.0_2.28.6-1-i386-A3fp41/glib2.0-2.28.6/./glib/goption.c:2132: ignoring no-arg, optional-arg or filename flags (8) on option of type 0

(gimp:15101): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_clipboard_set_with_owner: assertion `targets != NULL' failed

(script-fu:15286): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: gimp_wire_read(): error
Segmentation fault


[Edit now I am having: GIMP 2.6.11]

Please do not use 3rd party repos expecting support from Aptosid. The provider of the repo you used might jump in to help you, though. Moved to "User Scripts & Dragons".
Greetings,
Chris

Hi slam,
I was using the frickelplatz repo because I once needed something that was not available otherwise. I was not aware that by doing so, other packages are affected.

Purge gimp and all gimp related packages completely, and remove all Gimp configuration from your system, specially ~/.gimp*. Then re-install it from Debian.
You have seen that dist-upgrading against 3rd party repos can lead to unwanted upgrades to experimental versions, or - even worse - to not easy to repair or support technical issues.
If you really need something "not available otherwise", download the packages manually, and install them via dpkg -i - there is no need to add 3rd party repos. In any case tested backups before doing so are recommended.
Greetings,
Chris

There is a lot of - mostly optional - Gimp packages. My tip for the conflicts in your case is gimp-plugin-registry. Anyway, to purge all of them, do:
      Code:
apt-get purge gimp*

and do not forget to remove the configs in your home before re-installing gimp from Debian.
Greetings,
Chris

I did that already yesterday, after removing frickelplatz from the sources list ... But I will try again thanks.

Anyway - as stated above - there are some additional libs that are not caught with gimp*
