Sadly, no. Prior to Gimp 2.9 I used Gimp very little, mostly for
preparing jpegs for the web.

I was wondering whether anyone had similar issues with xcf files
created with older versions of Gimp (2.6, 2.8). It sounds like the
answer is no, at least based on your experiences.

Just speculating wildly, it could be that KDE expects xcf files to be
8-bit files and so crashes because the Gimp 2.9 xcf files are 32-bit
floating point (other bit depth xcf files are possible, but why? just
export to the bit depth you want).
