    Issues trying to install Gimp in Trusty 14.04

    I went to install Gimp in Trusty and am getting some weird errors. Synaptic does not show any broken packages. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem
    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install gimp

    I'm not sure but, I think that goes on forever.

    Synaptic appears kind of unstable in that when I select Gimp to install it sort of freezes and the dependencies take a while to get marked.
    So I did not even try installing it there. Not sure which road to take.

    I tried these to fix broken packages and still get the above error.

    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get check
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get -f install
    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install aptitude

    sudo aptitude update

    sudo aptitude install gimp


    If unsure of options it should give back post what it says ..... answering no - sometimes gives more options
    try not to remove anything important - if it should say it needs to remove something to complete its mission

    Synaptic may be an option too - see if it reports any problems back when you go into it

    sudo synaptic

    ( often use this when there is a report of broken packages - in the edit tab - 2nd from bottom - fix broken packages )

    Possibly ...... the sources lists ....... are you using multiple PPAs .....

    Synaptic shows no broken packages and I clicked Edit Fix Broken Dependencies but still get the same error.

    None of these options look good:

    I entered "n" once and got the above. Answering "n" a few more times does not provide any suitable option that I want to take.
    I've never seen this before. Gimp has always just installed even on the beta release.
    This is on the final release.

    My software sources are as default except I checked Canonical Partners and left in Updates Pre-released Updates (trusty-proposed) unchecked.

    Has anyone successfully installed Gimp in Trusty without problems?

    Re: Issues trying to install Gimp in Trusty 14.04

    I just did after reading your thread, using good ole synaptic without a hitch. Trusty 64 bit.

    Did you install something from a ppa and then disabled or removed the ppa? I don't mean the gimp ppa, but any ppa that might have upgraded some dependencies of those packages which cannot be installed now, my guess is that the installable versions are in a ppa that you have once used and then disabled/removed.

    Re: Issues trying to install Gimp in Trusty 14.04

    gimp wants to install libgfortran3 except in your case it's the wrong version for gcc-4.8 that's installed
    (gcc-4.8 is at 4.8.2-19ubuntu1, it wants to install libgfortran3 (4.8.2-17ubuntu2), you need libgfortran3 (4.8.2-19ubuntu1)

    What does this show ?
    Code:
    apt-cache policy libgfortran3
    are you using a mirror, if so switch to US server & update sources

    Sure. I've been using GIMP since I installed the 14.04 Kubuntu alpha release some months back. It survived every update along the way, too.

    I used the PPA back with 12.04 when the standard version was 2.6.x, but the 14.04 repository version is 2.8.10, so now I use that. I rarely add PPAs unless I know that there is something in the most recent version of a program that constitutes a substantial improvement in usability or security.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Strange that it should not go back in again but as monkeybrain20122 says

    I just did after reading your thread, using good ole synaptic without a hitch. Trusty 64 bit.
    Mine is 64 bit too and Gimp went in on a fresh install but some weeks back now

    Maybe its just the 32 bit version would need for someone else to confirm this though.

    Just checking my own libgfortran3

    But if its all uptodate then cannot this be upgraded by itself .

    K53SV:~/Desktop$ apt-cache policy libgfortran3
    libgfortran3:
    Installed: 4.8.2-19ubuntu1
    Candidate: 4.8.2-19ubuntu1
    Version table:
    *** 4.8.2-19ubuntu1 0

    I can't imagine that a 32 bit install shouldn't work when the 64 bit does, but anyway I tried and it all worked well.

    23dornot, sorry to say but your posting style is putting strain on the reader. It takes time to read isolated statements. Real sentences have a better flow.
