Re: no update ?
Thanks will take that back into the ticket. Is it okay to have also noted in another posting, how they had realized the singleton application-instance in earlier versions?
I found something that I think might work as well as gimp:
for my needs it works at least, I searched for gimp alternatives and found this, tell me if it has what you guys need and whatever it doesn't have, feel free to mention.
Actually this one might also work: https://github.com/glimpse-editor/Glimpse
But lazpaint requires way less depends thats why I mentioned that one first.
Glimpse forces D-Bus like GIMP, maybe you could create a feature request to make D-Bus optional for building, so we could use it as GIMP replacement.
