Portable Gimp 2.9.9 for linux
#21
There is a ppa-purge utility that removes a PPA cleanly. I added a PPA for KDE updates that updated and broke many things, and with ppa-purge I was able to recover a working system.

Hopefully sometime in this decade  the Software manager will be updated and I can try out layer group masks.

I installed Kubuntu 18.04 in a VM so I could try out the Gimp 2.10 from the ppa

It uses muon package manager by default. Installed synaptic just to feel comfortable. Is it any better than synaptic? The blub says https://www.linux-apps.com/content/show....ent=137507

I agree with you there Smile

The requirements for compiling Gimp 2.9.9/10 from start of the year brought in some really recent package changes.

I had a try in Kubuntu 16.04 and quickly ran into problems. Apart from dependency issues, the way some of the packages now require compiling has changed. Some are still ok with .compile/make others use autogen or cmake or pip. It is a real mess.

I hope that someone will get a Gimp 2.10 up and running for 'buntu 16 / mint 18 versions but not holding out much hope. It is looking like a complete version update long before LTS end-of-life 2021. Might go back to a rolling distro like PClinuxOS.

Here is an Appimage for 2.10.rc1 in the first post.

Technically it works, but just like the Pixls Appimage plugins like Felimage, Resynthesize, Plasma2, and probably more plugins/scripts don't work.

It is unfortunate.  Gimp isn't that useful for me without these things.  I hope this is because it is an Appimage, compiled missing some things.

My main fear though is that when 2.10 is released there won't be any way to easily get it in a Linux system.

It is the pixlus appimage, just that the link goes to the latest version.

When it eventually supersedes Gimp 2.8.x you will be able to get it. The only thing is 'easily' Most probably you will need a linux version update.

I use Gimp 2.8.22 from a ppa. The default version in 'buntu 16.04 is still Gimp 2.8.16, not exactly up-to-date there.

Normally you can add the scripts and plugins to your profile (if they don't requires recent libs like the core Gimp does). OTOH there is currently a problem with the AppImage that prevent it from loading external Python scripts.
