    GIMP splash screen

    I installed GIMP from the Discover store. I have a couple of issues now

    1. Python plugins not working ( worked in Snap version )

    2. No idea how to change the GIMP splash screen.

    Any help will be great.

    Perhaps you wanna install python-is-python3 package or just make a symlink called python that will execute python3 if you place it in the /usr/bin directory.
    sudo ln -s python3 python
    and run...
    sudo apt-get install gimp-data-extras gimp-plugin-registry

    Thanks. May I know what change we are making. Because in the meantime I tried the AppImage option and used

    GMIC-Gimp-2.10-linux.AppImage

    ResynthesizerPlugin-Gimp-2.10-linux.AppImage

    But none of the above is shown inside GIMP. Also, I tried Edit > Preferences and put ofn-erase-background in the plugins folder. Even that is nowhere to be seen inside GIMP.

    When I have installed GIMP, I've always used this PPA for the latest version. Recently though, Krita is enough for my simple usage.
