gimp run in background but did not show up!!!!

Hello everybody ;)

I'm using artix+i3-gaps.
I noticed that some .desktop files did not launch by clicking double them (/usr/share/applications/gimp.desktop) , using right-click manu in spaceFM, try to open a file in spacefm, or using rofi run   to launch them, while I can run them using dex, or by invoking rofi -show run from terminal.  Also  the corresponding commands run as expected from xterm or dmenu.

when I search for running instances I find that all my action sare running in background but did not show , someting like this.

Code: [Select]
$ ps aux | grep gimp
