Can't Open EPS Files
For some odd reason all of a sudden my GIMP will not open a ESP file! This is one of the two error messages I get:

Plug-in crashed: "file-ps.exe"
(C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\file-ps.exe)

The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.

The second one is:

Opening 'C:\Users\JLSDesign\Pictures\Josh's Gimp Work\monsterhead_ps15.eps' failed:

Procedure 'file-eps-load' returned no return values

Anyone else run into this, and if you have, how did you fix it? Thanks in advance for your help!

RE: Can't Open EPS Files
I see that my other PC running Gimp 2.8.2 will open them just fine, but the PC I use GIMP on for my work related stuff is 2.8.6. Anyone know if GIMP is going to release a patch to fix this issue??

RE: Can't Open EPS Files
You say it was working, so do any other .eps files open?
What has changed recently?

There was a recent similar post.

There is a link to a fix for 64 bit windows Gimp (assuming you are on that one). this one

http://blog.tjitjing.com/index.php/2013/...cript.html

and a replacement file attached to that other post for 32 bit.

I updated my version of GIMP. I did that a couple weeks ago, and this was the first time I tried opening a EPS file. I'll check out your links, and see if that fixes the issue. Thank you!
