[Gimp-user] HEIC or HEIF Files Not Opened

Thanks, Rich, I'll keep working on it as time permits and will post when and if
I solve it.

As with much of Gimp it depends. Gimp version and distro.

An Ubuntu 18.10 (VM) and all works as expected. The gimp package
contains the file-heif plugin and pulls in libheif as a dependency,
which in turn pulls in libx265..and so on. see screenshots.

However, I mostly use a kubuntu 16.04 and a Gimp 2.10.8 flatpak. The
Gimp package also contains the file-heif plugin but the
org.gnome.runtime does not have those dependencies. I can add those,
the file-heif plugin now opens heif files but crashes on export.
Solution for that is disable the built-in file-heif and add a separate
heif-gimp-plugin as a replacement.

There are other linux distros that work out-the-box, PClinuxOS Gimp
2.10.8 for example, but I have no knowledge of Fedora so can not

For say, Gimp 2.8.22 (kubuntu 16.04) then all needs adding,
heif-gimp-plugin plus the dependencies.
