When launching GIMP, I receive the following message:

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pantheon-filechooser-module"
Bus error (core dumped)

Before it was also included:

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

But it seems to have been resolved after installing the libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 package.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated as I use GIMP regularly.

  • Are you using a 64bit OS with a 32bit version of GIMP? – elmato Aug 25 '15 at 14:05
  • Thank you for your response. I'm using the 64bit version. I managed to resolve the issue by removing the GIMP configuration folder in my home directory. Launched as normal after that. – Gavin Aug 27 '15 at 7:12
  • Glad to hear you got it resolved! Thanks for posting your solution as this may be helpful for other users facing this problem. – elmato Aug 27 '15 at 7:23
