Howto: Gimp 2.3.10 on Ubuntu Edgy

September 18, 2006 at 3:26 pm | Posted in tips and tricks, xubuntu | 2 Comments

Please note: it says Edgy. This won’t work on Dapper. At all. Unless you want to upgrade half your system. In that case, get Debian.

I know 2.3.11 is released, but there are no packages for it yet.

1) Download gimp, gimp-data, libgimp2.0 2.3.10, and libwmf0.2-7


2) Install them:

sudo dpkg -i gimp_2.3.10-1.1_i386.deb gimp-data_2.3.10-1.1_all.deb libgimp2.0_2.3.10-1.1_i386.deb libwmf0.2-7_0.2.8.4-2_i386.deb

3) Try it out:


*Note: Your shortcuts may still point to /usr/bin/gimp-remote-2.2. In that case:

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gimp-2.3 /usr/bin/gimp-remote-2.2

  1. how about a post about editing the menu (with alacarte maybe?).

  2. Doesn’t seem to be available anymore…😦 Any other deb line that actually has it?
