OSX: EXPORT: No Extensions, totally broken (see image).. not a save/export question
[Image: tYJOPEw.png]

So.. I have no idea why the extension list is empty... and it basically makes the program unusable.

I've tried searching all over, but the internet is completely flooded with people who couldn't find the difference between save and export.

Just to reiterate, this is not the save as .xcf issue.

Definitely strange. Check the "pluginrc" file in your Gimp profile. It should contain references to the file handling plugins, such as:

Code:
(plug-in-def "/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/file-jpeg" 1386361952
    (proc-def "file-jpeg-load" 1
         "loads files in the JPEG file format"
         "loads files in the JPEG file format"
         "Spencer Kimball, Peter Mattis & others"
         "Spencer Kimball & Peter Mattis"
         "1995-2007"
         "JPEG image"
         0
        (icon stock-id -1 "")
        (load-proc
            (extension "jpg,jpeg,jpe")
            (magic "6,string,JFIF,6,string,Exif")
            (mime-type "image/jpeg")
            (thumb-loader "file-jpeg-load-thumb"))
         ""
         3 1
        (proc-arg 0 "run-mode" "The run mode { RUN-INTERACTIVE (0), RUN-NONINTERACTIVE (1) }")
        (proc-arg 4 "filename" "The name of the file to load")
        (proc-arg 4 "raw-filename" "The name of the file to load")
        (proc-arg 13 "image" "Output image"))
    (proc-def "file-jpeg-load-thumb" 1
         "Loads a thumbnail from a JPEG image"
         "Loads a thumbnail from a JPEG image (only if it exists)"
         "Mukund Sivaraman <muks@mukund.org>, Sven Neumann <sven@gimp.org>"
         "Mukund Sivaraman <muks@mukund.org>, Sven Neumann <sven@gimp.org>"
         "November 15, 2004"
         ""
         0
        (icon stock-id -1 "")
         ""
         2 3
        (proc-arg 4 "filename" "The name of the file to load")
        (proc-arg 0 "thumb-size" "Preferred thumbnail size")
        (proc-arg 13 "image" "Thumbnail image")
        (proc-arg 0 "image-width" "Width of full-sized image")
        (proc-arg 0 "image-height" "Height of full-sized image"))
    (proc-def "file-jpeg-save" 1
         "saves files in the JPEG file format"
         "saves files in the lossy, widely supported JPEG format"
         "Spencer Kimball, Peter Mattis & others"
         "Spencer Kimball & Peter Mattis"
         "1995-2007"
         "JPEG image"
         0
        (icon stock-id -1 "")
        (save-proc
            (extension "jpg,jpeg,jpe")
            (mime-type "image/jpeg"))
         "RGB*, GRAY*"
         14 0
        (proc-arg 0 "run-mode" "The run mode { RUN-INTERACTIVE (0), RUN-NONINTERACTIVE (1) }")
        (proc-arg 13 "image" "Input image")
        (proc-arg 16 "drawable" "Drawable to save")
        (proc-arg 4 "filename" "The name of the file to save the image in")
        (proc-arg 4 "raw-filename" "The name of the file to save the image in")
        (proc-arg 3 "quality" "Quality of saved image (0 <= quality <= 1)")
        (proc-arg 3 "smoothing" "Smoothing factor for saved image (0 <= smoothing <= 1)")
        (proc-arg 0 "optimize" "Optimization of entropy encoding parameters (0/1)")
        (proc-arg 0 "progressive" "Enable progressive jpeg image loading (0/1)")
        (proc-arg 4 "comment" "Image comment")
        (proc-arg 0 "subsmp" "The subsampling option number")
        (proc-arg 0 "baseline" "Force creation of a baseline JPEG (non-baseline JPEGs can't be read by all decoders) (0/1)")
        (proc-arg 0 "restart" "Interval of restart markers (in MCU rows, 0 = no restart markers)")
        (proc-arg 0 "dct" "DCT algorithm to use (speed/quality tradeoff)")))

If there is no pluginrc file then you have to figure out why it is not created (no permission to the directory?).

If it's there but missing the file handling plugins, check the contents of the "lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins" directory in the Gimp installation tree.. It should contain 44 executable files named "file-*". If they are not there, then reinstall. If they are there, check their "executable" flag.

I think I may have found it. Gimp seems to have some issue with parsing directories containing slashes (Applications/ "Image/Video"). Not really sure why apple even allows slashes in folder names.. I haven't yet tested this out.. but either way, it's a glitch worth noting.[Image: qAyOneq.png]

Yup.. totally was the issue.

Apparently having a folder named "Image/Video" was.. I don't even know why OSX SL allows such a thing tbh.

Thank you so much!

I thought they were forbidden on Linux as well but in practice you can create files with a "/" in the name (despite reading in several places that this character is forbidden)...

In the post above containing the image of your Preferences dialog, the Script folders shows an entry where you have '/Applications/Images' on one line and 'Video/Gimp.app etc' on the next.
Shouldn't it all be on the same line with the missing '/' added between?
