    Hello,

    many thanks to everybody for their testing with gimp in different DE.
    I had already open an incident https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1100765 but though that it was a translation problem because my user was using French.
    I have updated the bug with your finding.

    Regards

    You might experiment to see if changing your Display Manager to LightDM makes a difference. From console, as root:
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config default-displaymanager

    Hi,
    Got an idea from this post I quoted.
    I think the problem is related to kwin.
    In xfce, when I am using xfwm4 the option "select a region to grab", it is there
    however if I switch to kwin in xfce the option "select a region to grab" it is not.
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    When did Spectacle replace KSnapshot? Could that explain the difference between 42.3 and 15.0 for Plasma users?

    In Leap 42.1.

    No.

    And it actually works fine here on Leap 15.0 (in Plasma).

    The OP is using Tumblweed though, which has a newer gimp (2.10 vs. 2.8).
    And apparently it tries to get the screenshot from kwin when run in a Plasma session (which is only possible with compositing turned on btw), but seems not to be able to contact it for some reason.
