[Gimp-user] HEIC or HEIF Files Not Opened

I am using GIMP 2.10.8 on Fedora 29.  This version is supposed to be
able to import .HEIC files.  I have found, however, that these files
are not recognized by GIMP when I to to folders that contain them in
the File menu.  Am I missing something?  Does GIMP in the Fedora 29
repositories not have some dependency for this?

Caveat - I do not use Fedora however checking with my Kubuntu 16.04 (deb
packages) and PClinuxOS (rpm packages) Gimp(s) 2.10.8

Are you using a flatpak? Unlikely to work, much missing from the
org.gnome.Platform runtime. Although you can get it to work if you slip a few
extra files in here-and-there (at least as far as 'buntu is concerned).

A regular install? Check that you have libheif and libx265 installed.

Probably better asking this question on a Fedora forum.
