Can't install on OS Catalina

Hello, Hopefully someone can walk me through this, This is a brand new MacBook and when setting it up it went into a Catalina update and here I am... I've got the GIMP 2.10 installer on my desktop, I right click on it, a windows opens with GIMP 2.10.app, and that's as far as I get. I "open" the the GIMP-2.10.app and nothing, I don't wind up with a GIMP app and literally nothing happens. No app in launchpad or finder. Greatly appreciate help!

Unless things have changed drastically in Catalina (and from what I read, they may have, and not for the better), you need to left click on the installer and when it opens drag the resulting icon onto your desktop, after which you'll get a warning about it coming from a non-Apple source and so on. Tell it to install anyway. Whereupon it will install. Or should, anyway -- Catalina seems to have broken several things, including some photo-related ones.

“Seems to have broken”...? Beta releases have been outside from months; it is hard to believe that GIMP MacOS team didn’t notice anything before.

yup. so were betas of ios 13. and it was so bad that 13.1 had to be rushed out five days later, followed almost immediately by 13.1.1, which in turn was followed by 13.1.2, and all of this in the last month. meanwhile, catalina seems to have broken a lot of things, many photo-related:

The “GIMP MacOS team” is a couple of volunteers in their spare time.

Would you like to help out?

Yes. Open GIMP; also if you cannot access e.g. Desktop files with the File → Open dialog, you can drag a Desktop file icon to the GIMP window to open it.

This is a fault of the GIMP (GTK?) File → Open dialog; in MacOS, if you try to access a “protected" directory (Downloads, Documents, Desktop, …) a requester *should* *open*, asking if you want to give your program full disk access, and transferring you to System Preferences → Security & Privacy when answering “OK”. Please, change this behaviour.

And, for what concerns the issue "dragging the GIMP icon to the Applications directory", just dragging under MacOS on the same volume creates in Applications a soft link to the executable. If you want *move* the whole executable to Applications, use Command-Drag instead.
