after latest update, gimp not opening files

Hi Ryan,

I am still unable to use GIMP.
I have it both on 10.6 and 10.7 and t doesn't work the same way.

On 10.5 it still works… most probably beacuse I was unable to update everything yet!

Interesting, on 10.6 I had a slightly older version, and I activated it again…and it doesn't work exactly, this could prove that the issue is outside GIMP itself as you guess.

I have this:

  py27-pygtk @2.24.0_3+quartz (active)

Today, during upgrade I got this message:
        sudo port select --set python python36
        sudo port select --set python3 python36

I did not set any, perhaps I should? And furthermore, can I list the set python versions so we can check ti is not depending on that?
