I'm running the latest 2.8.4 Gimp package on Snow Leopard 10.6.8.
If I have gimp closed and double-click on an xcf in finder, it opens just fine. If gimp is running and I double-click on an xcf, it errors out with the attached dialog:
The document "foo" could not be opened. Gimp cannot open files in the "Gimp Image" format.

    Same problem here - happens for any file type if Gimp is running. TIFF, PNG, XCF, etc. Gimp 2.8.4, OS X 10.8.3

     
  • this is now fixed in the latest patch release 2.8.4p2

    Has this been applied to the Snow Leopard - Lion binary, or just Mountain Lion? I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.8

    Thanks

     
  • ... Lion and SnowLeopard fixes will follow in the next few days / next week

    I've tested on 10.6.8, looks good.
