    Broken package help

    Need some help with broken packages. I was trying to install gimp 2.8.

    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    gimp : Depends: libgimp2.0 (<= 2.6.12-z) but 2.8.0-1ubuntu0ppa3~precise is installed
    Depends: gimp-data (<= 2.6.12-z) but 2.8.0-1ubuntu0ppa3~precise is installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

    From where are you attempting to install the 2.8? If it's from the new PPA then try this. If you have synaptic installed it's easier. Purge everything GIMP on your system not just delete as you need to get rid of any config files. Delete any .gimp folders in your home directory, backing up any brushes or added things. Then install gimp-data first, then gimp and then anything else. This worked for me and 2.8 works very well in 12.04.

    removal from synaptic and re-installed seems to work!

    Thanks
