Thanks, Chris. I would need precise instruction on how to create a VM with the 
same characteristics you used, including an example config. My system config 
was pretty much created by the graphical installer.

By the way, every time I run GIMP from a terminal, I see these warning and 

$ LANG=en_US.utf-8 gimp

(gimp:1734): Gtk-WARNING **: 11:49:30.835: Unable to locate theme engine in 
module_path: "adwaita",

(gimp:1734): Gtk-WARNING **: 11:49:30.838: Unable to locate theme engine in 
module_path: "adwaita",
GIMP-Warning: Bad interpreter referenced in interpreter file 

GIMP-Warning: Bad binary format string in interpreter file 

GIMP-Error: Unable to run plug-in "spyro_plus.py"

Failed to execute child process 
 (Exec format error)

And every time I run Scribus from a terminal, I see this:

    pathForIcon: Unable to load icon 
 File not found

Also, running:

    $ strace -f -o gimp.out gimp
    $ strace -f -o scribus.out scribus

I see many lines containing messages of things that seem to fail. For instance, 
"No existe el fichero o el directorio", "Argumento inválido", among other 
messages (in English these would be something like "No such file or directory" 
and "Invalid argument", respectively).
