Gimp 2.8.2 chrashing on Ubuntu 12.04
Hi all.

I've been a GIMP user for a number of years now and it's always worked well for me, but since 2.8 came out I keep on experiencing crashes.

Some occur randomly, but the most common one is while attempting to zoom in or out by holding Ctrl and scrolling the mouse wheel. When I do this, either nothing happens, so no zooming (and moving up/down with mouse wheel doesn't work either), or GIMP just crashes, naturally deleting all my work in the progress. Sometimes just hitting Ctrl is enough to make it crash.

Starting GIMP through command line gives me this output upon crash..

Code:
(script-fu:3478): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: gimp_wire_read(): error
Segmentation fault

It might also be worth mentioning that I am a tablet user, so maybe that could play a role in the issue? Any help much appreciated Smile

Also seems to crash after creating an image using xsane to scan something. It works until the xsane popup window is given focus again, then exits with this terminal output:

Code:
(xsane:3802): LibGimp-WARNING **: xsane: gimp_flush(): error: Broken pipe
Segmentation fault (izpis jedra)

(script-fu:3801): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: gimp_wire_read(): error

(izpis jedra would translate to kernel output, I believe)

Actually, I think Canonical is still on 2.6... I got it from a PPA I found in an article on omgubuntu.co.uk..

The PPA is ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp

Should I try to compile it myself and see how that one behaves?
