    HI. My operating system is a Mac OS X 10.9.1, Processor 2.9 GHz Intel
    Core i7.

    I downloaded the GIMP 2.8.10 for Mavericks in January on
    http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/Download.html. I was using it successfully,
    however, one day without warning, it stopped working. I cleaned my
    computer (got rid go cookies on safari and verified my disk and everything
    was ok.). I decided to uninstall GIMP and reinstall the application. I
    reinstalled it and when I click on it to open it, it runs through the
    scripts but then it blips across my screen after it says " running through
    extensions" and disappears. I read a few blogs that said to install the
    XQuarts 11 program so I did that and it did not help. Any help would be
    greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      you don’t need X11 nor XQuartz with GIMP 2.8.10. GIMP is now a native app without the need to install X1/XQuartz.

      Please make sure that you install the GIMP package from my site http://gimp.lisanet.de and st to get sure, that you have really trashed every „old“ GIMP. Just to get sure, after deleting GIMP, reboot your Mac.

      Then, try to move the config folder to some other location, to start all over with a fresh install. The config folder is in your user library (hold down the ALT key while clicking in Finder „Go -> Library“) in „Application Support -> GIMP“
      Quit GIMP and move the config folder to e.g. your desktop (so that if you have installed custom scripts and plugins, you can copy them back later one by one…) the make sure that you installed the latest GIMP from my site and relaunch GIMP. The config folder will be created with default settings, and everything should work again.
