GIMP 2.8

Postby sv1xv on Fri May 04, 2012 4:05 pm

GIMP 2.8 was released yesterday. It is now possible to combine all separate GIMP functions in one window.

The question now is, which version of GIMP shall be bundled with Mint 13 ? Is it possible to have 2.8 or we shall be stuck with 2.6.12 as in in Ubuntu 12.04 ?
Hardware: ASUS Eee PC 4G Surf

It will probably be whatever is in Ubuntu, but what prevents you from updating it yourself?

It looks like GIMP 2.8 is "install with caution" on Ubuntu 11.10 (Mint 12)
There is no mention at all,as yet,of compatibility with Ubuntu 11.04 (Mint 11)

Im a stick in the mud... been putting off "upgrading" to Mint12 because of the gnome3 shambles.. If I have to, I have to, but I dont want to.. I like my desktop and productivity as it is.

Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaseeeee fix! :P

I tried to install Gimp 2.8 on Mint 12, but ended up with this:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gimp : Depends: libgimp2.0 (>= 2.8.0~rc1-8oneiric0~ppa) but 2.6.11-2ubuntu4 is to be installed
Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.24.10) but 2.24.6-0ubuntu5linuxmint1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

When can we see support for GIMP 2.8 in Mint 12? some packages seems to need an update.

See my fix here viewtopic.php?f=47&t=101502

If you have already installed the ppa run this in the terminal
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install -f


then make sure Gimp is uninstalled by running this
Code: Select all
apt-get remove gimp


then run
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


then you can reinstall the ppa..
