GIMP 2.10 Doesn't Have Permission To Access a USB Drive. Why? How to Resolve? (18.04)

by Broadsworde   Last Updated July 13, 2018 20:02 PM

When trying to access an external USB drive in GIMP 2.10, as soon as I try and open the /media directory I get an error message:
enter image description here

I get the same error message if I try and open an image file from the USB drive by Right-Click image file > Open with GIMP

I installed GIMP 2.10 with snap:

$ sudo snap install gimp

There's obviously something I'm missing in terms of configuration, but I can't find a similar question posted yet.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
