How well does the Gimp Animation Package work?

I use to use GIMP GAP on Windows and it worked quite well. But how well does it work on Linux Mint? :?:

If you take the time to learn it, it is as powerful as PhotoShop. There is a VERY steep learning curve, however!
I have travelled 35629424162.9 miles in my lifetime

One thing I would suggest, create a partition a ~28G partition as /. Partition the rest as /Home.
When the system fails, reinstall and use the exact same username and all your 'stuff' comes back to you.

I know that GIMP has leaning curve, But what about GAP on Linux is it the same as the Windows version and does it work as well as the Windows version?

Why not try it? Do you not have linux installed yet?
Anyway, their tutorial
https://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Using_GAP/
doesn't mention windows or linux, which might imply there's no difference.
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?
Mint 18.3 Xfce/fluxbox/pulse-less
Xubuntu 17.10/fluxbox/pulse-less

Thanks I already have LM installed, but I guess I'll try GAP for Linux sometime.
