Gimp Devel

Postby hairy_Palms on Sat Jul 07, 2007 6:14 am

I see lots of people level accusations against the gimp, that whilst true of 2.2, are already implemented in 2.3 so i thought id write a howto to let them install it.
To install the latest Development Gimp, which is much nicer, faster and more featureful than gimp 2.2, first

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get build-dep gimp


then download the latest gimp source code

ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.3/gimp-2.3.18.tar.bz2

Extract it

in the extracted folder run

./configure

then
make

you probably want to go watch tv or something for 15mins here
and finally
make install

or if you want use checkinstall :)
then run your shiny new gimp from the menu :)
or withe the command gimp-2.3
it wont overwrite your old gimp installation, so you can have both installed if you want.
