Gimp makes stock Manjaro KDE/X11 crash
(04-10-2021, 03:19 AM)stozi Wrote: I can open Gimp, but as soon as I open any image in it, KDE or X11 (don't know) starts blacking out, screen goes black, parts of screen go black, cursor does whatever it wants... Basically have to hard restart.

Is there a package missing or something? Thanks!!

It looks like you are hitting

Until the fix to Mesa is merged and makes its way to an update (which might take a couple of weeks), you can try the workaround, which is to set the environment variable PAN_MESA_DEBUG=noafbc for X. Depending on how launch X, it might be enough to just put it in /etc/environment.

Alternatively, you can also try using GIMP from a Wayland compositor or Xephyr window. Even a Wayland compositor running nested inside the X session should work.
