Ubuntu – Repository – GIMP version 2.10


The Ubuntu Synaptic Package Manager show GIMP v 2.8 as the latest version and version 2.10 was release a couple of days ago. When do you expect GIMP v2.10 to be in the Ubuntu repository?

Best Answer

The version which you ask for was not available on feature freeze of 18.04 and will however maybe make it into 18.10. However for older versions of Ubuntu and 18.04 you can get this version of GIMP from a PPA. Follow the below steps to get it:

sudo apt remove --purge gimp
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp-edge
sudo apt update # Beginning with 18.04 this step can be omitted
sudo apt install gimp

This gives you as of time I'm writing this 2.10. This PPA is well maintained.
I'm not afilliated with this PPA in any form.
