Gimp 2.8 crashes during startup
I been using 2.8 for a month right now and it's been working smooth and great!

Until version 2.8.6 came out for a update,
and I can't access the program anymore.
It will crash during startup and a pop-up window will show up saying that the program stoppedUndecided (please see the screenshot in the bottom)
How do I fix this problem?Does it have to do with the tools or anything else?

Thank You.

RE: Gimp 2.8 crashes during startup
huntramo, welcome to the forums!! "old to gimp, new to gimp forum" hah! i like it XD

Anyways,

I see the bottom in your screenshot its loading tool presets before it crashes.

So time for some basic/initial troubleshooting for you:

-did you install any new plugins or scrips(.scms) for gimp?
-did you change any settings in the preferences of gimp?
-if you can remember what you were working on last time gimp started up ok, that might help too.

Try fully uninstalling & reinstalling gimp 2.8.6 if the above are not the case.

- Find your Gimp profile with your file explorer
- Erase/rename the "tool-presets" subdirectory
- Try to start Gimp again
- If it still crashes: rename the whole Gimp profile (ie: .gimp-2.8 -> .gimp-2.8-disabled)
- Try to start Gimp again


ok i found the file that keeps all my gimp,i'll see if it works.
