The only other GIMP.app is in the GIMPskel folder in my Downloads folder
where I build the application bundle.
jsingleton at minimac ~ $ find ~ -name GIMP.app 2>/dev/null
jsingleton at minimac ~ $
The only clear thing here is that what is shown in the error does not
reflect the truth. When I open Finder, and then click on Applications,
and then double-click on GIMP.app, how exactly is that my Users folder?
jsingleton at minimac ~ $ ls -1 /Applications/G*
Its not symlinked...therefore its not starting from my Users folder.
Lastly, that error mentioned version 7.0.0 of libiconv.2.dyld being the
issue. Because I am using what some might consider the ancient method
for creating an application bundle of GIMP, via the GIMPskel package
from Sourceforge - this method requires me to build ScriptExecCocoa.
Digging into Xcode.app under the 10.10 SDK folder, there is in fact a
libiconv.2.dylib - and running the otool command on that shows this:
jsingleton at minimac ~ $ otool -L
/usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib (compatibility version 7.0.0, current version
/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current
So I made some changes to the ScriptExecCocoa.xcodeproj to force it to
use the libiconv.2.dylib from MacPorts, and bam, no more crash.
