How To Install Gimp 2.4.7 In Elyssa

Postby exploder on Sun Aug 31, 2008 6:09 pm

I just installed Gimp 2.4.7-1 from GetDeb and since it has some bug fixes I thought I would share how I did it.

1) Open Synaptic and uninstall the following packages. (You will be replacing them with newer versions.)

gimp
gimp-data
gimp-gnomevfs
gimp-python
libgimp

2) Click on the Software Portal icon in the mintMenu and select the GetDeb.net tab.

3) Type in "gimp" and press "enter". (You should now see the Gimp 2.4.7-1 Gimp packages at the top of the page.)

4) Download all of the Gimp packages except for "gimp-libcurl" (gimp-libcurl was not originally installed in Elyssa and does not appear to be needed.)

5) Install the packages in the following order to meet the dependencies.

gimp-data2.4.7-1
libgimp2.0_2.4.7-1
gimp_2.4.7-1
gimp-gnomevfs_2.4.7-1
gimp-python_2.4.7-1

6) Use mintDesktop to restore your original Gimp splash screen.

You are done! You should now have the latest version of the Gimp!


Here is the change log.

- fixed issue in GIF load plug-in (bug #535888)
- fixed event handling in MIDI controller (bug #537960)
- fixed handling of the 'Highlight' tool option in Crop and Rectangle
Select tools (bug #536582)
- various fixes to the Python bindings:
- fixed crash with Python 2.5 on 64 bit systems (bug #540629)
- added missing validity checks (bug #536403)
- allow to pass None for PDB_DISPLAY
- plugged a memory leak in gimp-text-get-extents-fontname PDB call
- fixed potential timeout issues in org.gimp.GIMP.UI D-Bus service
- fixed endianness issue in the ICO save plug-in (bug #529629)
- translation fixes and updates (be, it, lt, nn, vi)

Edit: Pidgin 2.5.1 and Brasero 0.8.1-1 are also available from GetDeb and work fine in Elyssa.

Thanks exploder
Do you know if Pidgin 2.5.1 would work in Daryna?

Unfortunately, the package was labeled for Ubuntu 8.04. I do not think it will work with Daryna.

Does getDeb not have a Gutsy section? This confuses me - I've only seen a Hardy section

I did not see anything other than the Hardy section. I looked after reading your post.
