Hi everybody!

I have a new update of the GIMP+gmic+PhF appimage package ready for testing: 

This new version comes with an improved desktop integration, which seems to 
work quite well. 

When enabled, the desktop integration will

* put an entry in the applications menu, called "GIMP AppImage"
* add an entry in the "Open with..." context menu of most common file managers
* let you select the appimage as the default program associated to image files

To test this new functionality, you need to:

* get the latest version from here: 
* make the file executable with "chmod a+x"and run it, either from the terminal 
or by double-clicking on it from your file manager
* upon the first execution,choose "Yes" when asked if you want to install a 
.desktop file for the application

New versions of the appimage will automatically detect the presence of an old 
.desktop file and they will prompt you for installing a new one when needed.

The only issue I've encountered so far is that when running the appimage from 
the applications menu, GIMP complains with this error message: "Opening 
'/tmp/.mount_2CANTA/usr/%U' failed: Error opening file: No such file or 
directory". It is harmless but a bit annoying, and I have no idea how to get 
rid of it...

I’ll appreciate any feedback.
