GIMP language DE??
Installed GIMP 2.10 from but also from in the hope to get the locale UI version for DE. And also using only gives the EN version.

Maybe it's because my operating system is

  Kernel: 5.4.0-54-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce 4.14.2
  Distro: Linux Mint 20 Ulyana

 with the language setting for EN.

However, I assume there is a method to get a GIMP DE version to work, just how ?  (Without changing the base OS EN version!).
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks
Looks like you might have a flatpak installed, nothing wrong with a flatpack.

You could try an appimage, that will run separately from your existing Gimp installation. I have a Gimp 2.10.14 (from a PPA) along side a Gimp 2.10.22 appimage.   The regular Gimp only has English available but the appimage come with languages. 


Comes from
and the version you want is Download, make executable, run. Worth a try.
Thanks, it did the job!
After started GIMP it comes up with EN version, but the UI can be changed for other language like this:
Edit --> Preferences --> Interface --> Language / "System Language"
Select the required language (like DE) and you need to restart GIMP to get it done finally.

Thanks for the help Wink
