Something is wrong with your gimp-perl installation. Instead of exec'ing
gimp (the path is in $Gimp::Config{GIMP}, so you should look at your
Gimp::Config module which is autogenerated) it tries to exec "".

Maybe you need a newer version of gimp-perl (I don't know).

That is definitely the culprit. In Config.pm, the GIMP variable is being set to "" (perhaps something to do with gimp now being a symlink to gimp-2.2?). I manually set that to /usr/local/bin/gimp and I get further.

I'm getting some other errors/warnings now:
Subroutine Gimp::gimp_palette_set_foreground redefined at /usr/lib64/perl5/sit
perl/5.8.6/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/Gimp.pm line 603.
Subroutine Gimp::gimp_selection_all redefined at /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.
6/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/Gimp.pm line 603.

but I think I might be able to figure things out from here on..

The version of gimp-perl was Gimp-2.0.tar.gz obtained from ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/plug-ins/v2.0/perl/

Is there a newer version out there?

Thanks again,
