    Talking Gimp 2.7 and Python [ ImportError: No module named gimp ]

    If you had Gimp 2.6 (with gimp-plugin-registry installed) and installed Gimp 2.7 to try its new goodies, but Layer Effects are not showing, and when executing "gimp" from console you get these *nasty* errors:

    Code:
    This is a development version of GIMP.  Debug messages may appear here.

    The solution is to download the .deb file from 2.6 version, which may be: gimp_2.6.8-2ubuntu1_i386.deb or _amd64 (depending on your system).

    Then uncompress it in a temporally folder (do not install). And uncompress data.tar.gz.

    Move usr/lib/gimp/2.0/python directory (and contents of course) to its respective location (/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/).

    NOTE: If you haven't install the 2.7 version yet... BEFORE upgrading, backup "python" directory and then just restore it after installing 2.7.

    Start it again and Enjoy
