GIMP 2.7 for older Ubuntu versions (unofficial):

ppa:matthaeus123/mrw-gimp-svn

Not being good with terminal I simply added it to the Synaptic PM repositories, it replaces 2.6 and upgrades in the normal way. I left the extras and UFRaw plug ins as is and they work fine on 2.7.


yes it did remove Gimp 2.6, but it did not install 2.7, due to som other missing depedencies...............

And the I had a terrible job getting Gimp 2.6 back.........

So I don't recommend anyone trying this.

All I can say is it worked as I said on Lubuntu and Mint. Googling the PPA will bring up others using it. Likely as not somebody will do the same for the final GIMP 2.8 and that will be better yet.

When I attempted to install Gimp 2.8, this is what I read on terminal:

Oddly enough, Gimp 2.6 is still there, but Synaptic Package Manager now crashes after I log in, with part of the above message:

You have to manually edit the file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/otto-kesselgulasch-gimp-oneiric.list and remove the last line which contains "ain" and save the file.
You ned to be root or sudo to do this. (sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/otto-kesselgulasch-gimp-oneiric.list)

I installed Linux Mint 13 Maya RC with the Mate desktop today and updated Gimp to 2.8 with no problems.. If you want to try it be sure to open a terminal and enter
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge Gimp*
before adding the ppa.....

Be sure to add the asterick or it won't purge all of the installed Gimp files..

installing gimp 2.8 on LM 12 is tricky as there are major dependency issues. I upgraded to LM 13 which is based on Ubuntu 12.04 and gimp 2.8 installs in that no problem.

GIMP 2.8 is known to break Mint 12/Ubuntu 11.10 but works fine on Mint 13/Ubuntu 12.04. Read the warning when you add the ppa.

Ahhhhh, single window mode. First time in years I've used gimp without moving floating little windows around.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

thank you Colyn,

I have just followed your above instructions and installed Gimp 2.8. Running Mint 13 RC (Cinnamon) 64 bit. Went without a hitch.

Just wanted to say that this is my first time installing a ppa, or anything via the Terminal and it went perfectly. Thank you for the instructions.
