Install gimp 2.6.11 in Ubuntu 10.10/10.04
Open the terminal and run the following commands
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gimp
followed the instructions in 10.10 and version 2.6.10 was installed. Any idea why?
I did this in 10.10 and when I open gimp the
version is still 188.8.131.52 even when I reboot.
Followed the instructions…Gimp does not install, tells me latest version is already installed. Have Ubuntu 10.04 and Gimp 2.6.8.
Same Problem with 10.10 & gimp 2.6.10
It’s sad – because i can not print with 2.6.10 ;(
I think you have to have gimp 2.6.10 installed already then run the commands. That’s what worked for me.
meanwhile it worked – i do not know my mistake anymore, maybe i copied all three command in one ?
I removed gimp (and xsane) and then followed the above instructions. It did not work, I still have gimp 2.6.8 instead of 2.6.11 (trying to resolve printing problem)
thanks alot this worked fine for me i now have 2.6.11 of gimp on my laptop after updating to ubuntu 10.10
It tells me some packages were not verified… I’m running Ubuntu 10.10
gimp and HP ScanJet 3800 not installed on 10.10.2
