    [SOLVED] Gimp Error


    When I open or create a new image in Gimp I'm getting the below error. The image Window opens but has no menu along the top.

    I'm using Kubuntu 7.10 and when I try to uninstall Gimp to reinstall it Kubuntu wants to remove the desktop!

    Any ideas? I think the xml file has some how become corrupt?

    There was an error parsing the menu definition from image-menu.xml: Error on line 401 char 21: Invalid UTF-8 encoded text - not valid '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    Line 401 contains:

    <`enuitem action=<95>layers-alpha-se+ection-add"/>

    Not sure what character <95> is meant to be so I guess that's the problem.

    I'll try and replace it with a "...

    That has got rid of the above error message but produced new smaller one:

    There was an error parsing the menu definition from image-menu.xml: Error on line 401 char 6: '`' is not a valid character following a '<' character; it may not begin an element name

    I guess the ` should be an m. Line 402 starts with a + too so I'll remove that...

    Yep that fixed it There was an error parsing the menu definition from image-menu.xml: Error on line 401 char 6: '`' is not a valid character following a '<' character; it may not begin an element name

    I wonder why that happened! I was only resizing an image when it happend!

    Just noticed the 'l' in selection had turned into a + too so that needed correcting
