macOS Mojave wont open GIMP.

Hi team,

Ive downloaded GIMP, but can't get it to open. Running mac Mojave.

Whilst GIMP appears in downloads, it does not appear in my Apps folder.

Have tried dragging the icon across to Apps (as suggested elsewhere). And copying the downloaded file.

Note from my screen shot, there is no option to "allow installation from identified developers" as suggested for a Sierra workaround.

Help please...

I have the same issue, I am a new GIMP user and cannot figure this out for the life of me. I have tried the same solutions as well, but to no avail.

There have been similar reports. Looks like you used up the common options.

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/3670

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/2460

However that last one does point to https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25088?locale=en_US

Does that help? Otherwise you can always post yet another bug report.

I figured it out! I just was not following the directions properly.

Instructions:

1. Download 2.10.12 from gimp.org (make sure it is for the macOS) 2. Open the .dmg file that is located in your "downloads folder" 3. Open the "install" file that is on your desktop 4. Drag the "gimp" file into your "applications" folder located in **FINDER** Note: I had been dragging the file into my applications folder that is on my "dock"; that did not work, I had to be in "finder" Note: You know the copy was successful when a menu prompt appears and notifies that the file is being copied into your applications
5. Follow the directions stated here: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25088?locale=en_US 6. Have fun!

I hope that helps. Thanks dezmo and richman for your help.
