Updating app image
#1
2.10.20 is now available. If we use app image for GIMP, how to update to the latest version ? Thanks.

Keep looking here for a new version: https://github.com/aferrero2707/gimp-appimage/releases/

Carmelo has automated development / pre-release versions that come out approximately weekly
The latest pre-release is GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.19-20200605-withplugins-x86_64.AppImage which is from a week ago. This is really the same as the Gimp 2.10.20 bar the name.

However, the release versions 2.10 - 14 / 18 / 20 are not automatic ,so keep checking on the site until Gimp 2.10.20 is produced. Carmelo said - very busy at the moment with other work, so be patient.

As the name, these are self-contained & portable, download and run. Back the old version up somewhere, you might need it sometime in the future. The new version uses the same Gimp profile ~/.config/GIMP-AppImage/ Any settings / resources are used by the new version.

Is there any alternate source ? Thanks.

Gimp 2.10.20 appimage is there: https://github.com/aferrero2707/gimp-appimage/releases/

It is a long list easily missed. The download is

https://github.com/aferrero2707/gimp-app...4.AppImage

I have been using it for the last 10 days or so, works very well.

As far as I know Carmelo is the only one making Gimp appimages at the moment. I made some long ago but it is not easy now with the required Gimp dependencies. Not going to reinvent the wheel.

Thanks. I will check.

My 2.10.18 is on the context menu. When I start using 2.10.20 will it overwrite 2.10.18 ? And when I use " Open with " which one will it choose ?

I do not know. You got an 'Add to menu' message on first use? I always decline and make my own launchers. You might have to do that.

The two appimages are separate and self-contained so you can use either. Gimp 2.10.18 will be a bit of a waste of space, you can move to a backup disk somewhere (or delete it) What does remain is the appimage user profile. What you set up for 2.10.18 remains for 2.10.20

Thanks. I just set it up. I got an " add to " option when I double clicked the app image. It works through K Menu as well ( where I edited the 201.0.18 to 2.10.20 ). Context menu method works too.
