In 12.04 Gimp has version 2.6. I however want to install 2.8. As I understand this necessitates the installation via a PPA.
However, on many forum threads, I read warnings not to install programs lightly using ppa's.
So, what should I do? Install Gimp
(I'm not sure whether this post belongs on this forum, but as there's no "software" forum, I think this is the best place.)
