    Usually it worked all pretty well but today I start receiving this error message when I try to open a pdf with GIMP


    Opening 'C:\Entwürfe\Variante 1c EG 1_100_101.pdf' failed:

    Could not open 'C:\Entwürfe\Variante 1c EG 1_100_101.pdf' for reading: No such file or directory

    What is happening here?

    cheers

    Did you try to open it with a double click or did you try opening it with the "Open Recent" function?

    I managed to open 2 pdf files in Gimp 2.6.11 but when edited and saved, there's no pdf file extension for it.

    Have you tried to open other pdf files and what version of Gimp you're using? (to see the version go to Help ->About)
