Install GIMP 2.8 on Ubuntu

8:05 AM

Gimp 2.8 is released, but on Ubuntu repository you just can get GIMP 2.8, i don't know why the Ubuntu repository not update the GIMP version. If you want to get GIMP 2.8 in your ubuntu machine, just using ppa repository. I am using otto-kesselgulasch ppa to update GIMP to 2.8. There is step by step how to install gimp 2.8 through the ppa.
  • Open terminal with Ctrl Alt T and write
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp

Add repository
Add repository
  • Press enter after you got the information about the ppa for addin the ppa into system
confirm repository
confirm repository
  • Write
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gimp
  • apt get update for refresh repository list and apt get install for installing gimp on your ubuntu machine.
I hope it's work for you like on my Ubuntu machine. Happy painting ;)
