If you choose OK it should go away… I think a desktop shortcut is quite handy 
if one starts to use the appimage frequently.

That’s a task for the Gimp theme makers, I guess. The AppImage uses whatever 
theme is available in git.

Well, that’s already 90% of what is included in the package!

One issue I am trying to figure out is how to enable third-party plug-ins… I‘m 
afraid that the appimage does not allow to run binary plug-ins not originally 
included into it, but I still might be wrong and too pessimistic.
Python-based plug-ins should not be problem though.
