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.

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!

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?
