I have been using GIMP to save image files in the .png format for many
years. I recently upgraded to GIMP 2.8 and I cannot seem to save/export
the image files. This is not about what kind of command I am using or
whether or not the user interface is good or bad. When I activate the
export command I successfully complete the process without any error
I am using the .png image files as wallpapers for the fvwm window manager
and I get no error messages or any indication that something is wrong, I
just get no wallpaper image. (Please refrain from commenting about the
dinosaur-ness of my window manager;))
I have searched the FAQ and gimp user archives but cannot seem to find
any mention of this problem.
I have also made sure that I have merged and/or flattened the images and
have also used the convert tool to use the sRGB color profile. I also have
the file-png plugin loaded in my plug-in directory. None of these options
have made a difference.
Does anyone know anything about this kind of problem? Does anyone know
where I might find information about how to fix this kind of problem?
Thanks very much for your assistance.
I think there have been similar reports before where it turned out that
some software can't open interlaced PNG files, so try deselecting
"interlacing" in PNG export dialog.
