Tested with:
Ubuntu 16.04 (64bit) with Gnome 3.18.5, 16GB RAM, Lenovo X220 Tablet, Intel® Core™ i5-2520M CPU @ 2.50GHz × 

All works well! Does this contain the MyPaint brush library? I can't seem to find it if it's included.

The standard my paint brushes are included in the package, and should work… did you try to use them?

Also, I only get the message "Should a desktop file ..." on the first run, then I'm able to run the new 
desktop file like I do regularly (by hitting the Super key, and typing GIMP). The appimage only should be 
run once, correct?

No, it is run each time, because it does not install anything apart from the desktop file.

The only other thing is that running GIMP from the app image is much slower than GIMP installed from repo. 
That's probably to be expected, I guess, but thought it was worth mentioning. It still loads faster than 
Photoshop! :)

This is hopefully more due to compilation flags than the appimage architecture itself. I will try to improve 
optimisations in the next test version.

Thanks a lot for all your work, and making this available to everyone!

You are welcome!

Cool! It seems to work on my 64 bits opensuse, but I get a lot of messages like:

(gimp:29821): Gtk-WARNING **: /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/ wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32

It might be that one needs to include the gtk engines in the AppImage...

Is your recipe available somewhere?

I have created a gist with the current version: 

Thanks for checking!

Last night I have prepared a first appimage for testing. It contains:

- BABL, GEGL and GIMP from git
- all default mypaint brushes
- G’MIC plug-in from version 1.7.5_pre (latest available)
- PhotoFlow plug-in for opening and processing RAW images

* Link to the AppImage: 

The usage is very simple:

- download the appimage anywhere on your disk
- make the .AppImage file executable with chmod u+x
- run the .AppImage file from the console

Any feedback is highly appreciated...

Hi Carmelo,

I am interesting in testing the appimage, my system: OpenSUSE Leap 42.1

Dear all,

I am working on an AppImage recipe that gets BABL, GEGL libmypaint and GIMP from git, compiles them 
and bundles them into a portable AppImage.
Is there any volunteer for testing the experimental gimp appimage and give feedback? If yes, please 
specify which distribution will be used for testing.
