GIMP approaches the next stable release and only a handful bugs are left to be fixed before GIMP 2.6 is ready.2008-09-17

ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.6/

2.6 here already, great news :)

If you want to compile manually I can show you how so just ask.

Building GIMP from Source

Firstly sudo apt-get install build-essential

Latest babl ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/babl/ <--Install first
Latest GEGL ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gegl/

Both of these should be ./configure --prefix=/usr

Then the following packages(some I have forgot, sorry but GIMP configure will tell you :p )

libgtk-dev
xserver-xorg-dev
python-2.5-dev
intltool
libgnomeui-dev

Remove your GIMP2.4 packages and run ./configure --prefix=/usr then make then sudo make install in your GIMP-2.6.0 directory. Run make clean to clean your directory after. Good luck :)

Please do! I downloaded all the files off of get deb and tried to install them with package manager and it's just causing all kinds of problems and giving me broken package messages and wanting me to do things like uninstall ubuntu desktop to fix it.

This didn't work for me. Download seemed to run and files appeared in usr/bin and usr/lib so I assume it went OK. However, the package installer displayed an error message: "Dependency is not satisfiable: gimp-data"

Any ideas on what this means?

Thanks

Yeah I got the same problem here. Make sure you download and install the .debs it says you are missing. Seems to be fixing my prob.

Edit: yeah, download all the .deb files and install each one it says you do not have before the other. Pretty strait forward after you figure that part out.

I'd be interested in seeing it, Half-Left. I installed from the DEBs, but the main reason is because I am having a terrible time finding the libs and such I need to build stuff. It took me 30 minutes of trial and error and google to finally uncover all of the dependencies I needed to build Gnomint. Is there a way that I can install like a 'developer's package' or something for Ubuntu?
You'll have to forgive me, I'm used to FreeBSD, where I could specify at install time if I wanted source code installed. I can't seem to figure it out for Ubuntu.

I like 2.6 a lot but I ended up replacing the splash screen with my own. I've attached it to this post. If you like it, save it as "gimp-splash.png" in your /home/username/.gimp-2.6 folder.

Still no success.
I initially assumed that the dependency issue was related to the sequence of installation of the various components. If that was the case, a repeat of the depackaging command should have worked. Instead I got the message below.

I had unloaded the previous version (GIMP-2.4.5) via synaptic before I started this adventure with GIMP-2.6, but it appears that that wasn't enough.

Any advice? How do I find the "right" gimp-data file?

Following on from my last post.
Assuming that something didn't download sweetly (although I don't know enough to know what!), I removed it all and started again. The depackage generated no faults, but the GIMP splash screen initially stalled on "scanner plug-ins".

I removed all scanner-related plugins and the launch was able to complete. I haven't yet checked whether everything works, but so far so good.

Thanks everyone for the guidance.

The right gimp-data file is on the getdeb page.

I installed them with Gdebi instead of terminal, might have taken a bit longer but it worked. Double click on the main gimp package, and it will tell you which dependency you're missing, install that one then try it again and it tells you which to install next and so on.

Please do not manually install anything in /usr unless you want the hassle of conflicting versions of libs when babl and gegl enter main. There is no guarantee that the packaged version of the libs will overwrite your manually installed versions.

/usr/local or /opt will both work equally well and make it easier on yourself as long as those paths are included in ld.so.conf and you remember to run ldconfig after your make install.

It's a matter of choice, obviously, but I installed 2.6 using the six .deb files from getdeb, and after playing with it for a while I uninstalled it and went back to the older version.

I didn't find anything new in 2.6 that I really wanted, and there were a few bugs - on my machine, at least. For instance, F11 displayed full-screen but with the toolbox and other windows on top of the image, which isn't much use. I tried GEGL but it was very slow.

Your experience may be different, but I wouldn't rush to upgrade to 2.6 right now.

Well if your manually compiling it you shouldn't be using any packages, using /usr as the natural path. This is why I said remove your GIMP-2.4.

You are misunderstanding me, let me rephrase it:

When you dist-upgrade your system to the next release that includes a packaged version of babl and gegl there is no guarantee that they will be overwritten when you install the packaged versions.

That is why /usr/local or /opt is a much better place to manually install software.

I dont undnerstand how you think they wont be overwritten, they are in the same prefix with the same files, just like a update overwrites files in the same place to the new version.

So unless Ubuntu decides to move prefixes, it's not a issue. If you leave GIMP package installed and compile to the same prefix and then remove the GIMP package, guess what happens?, yes it removes the one you compile just like it would do a package.

On the other hand, you can do what I do, which is a good practice anyway. Whenever I install anything from source, whether there are packaged versions available or not, I place the source code in /home/steve/src/ and I leave it there.

Then, if ever I need to remove software I have installed manually, all it takes is to cd to /home/steve/src/program-name and "sudo make uninstall"

This works with just about anything. While you're correct about packages overwriting, there are always the odd exceptions, and keeping the source, or at least the config files around will let you fully uninstall, and prevent any errors.

Slippery slope........

Right now it's just gimp, but compiling from source to get the latest and greatest tends to become a habit, and good housekeeping habits now will mean an easier life later.

Very nice, but Gimp won't stay in one window (http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/4083/screenshotow4.png) for me.


://

You're still going to have three windows because nothing really handles the windows perfectly as sub-windows, but if you're running Metacity (or Compiz from git as of this morning), the toolbox, etc. will float above the main window, and the main window will size the image to better fit this set up.
So I need compiz to make gimp one window? WTF!

The debs from getdeb have a bug, i have installed them in Xubuntu and all went ok, however i cannot open png, tiff and other formats that i used to open. My guess is that the package gimp-data, was not correctly built with all options.

Anyone with 2.6.0 can open Png's and Tiff's, or is just me?

The Gimp developer's did not actually make the new version to be in one window. (I wanted this too.) You can change the window management settings in the preferences to make it appear to be one window but it is actually windows placed on top of each other.

Hi shelbyvision,

This means there's a package out there called "gimp-data" that needs to be installed on your system before you can install Gimp.

Also...you have Ubuntu 3.10???! I don't even think that's possible. Depending on which version you have, you can go to www.getdeb.net and find packages (including gimp-data) for Gimp 2.6.

You might also look into using Scribus or OpenOffice for printing your images if Gimp doesn't fit the bill.

November 21st, 2008, 10:45 PM
OOPS, typo, that's Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy)!
I have a gimp-data already installed. When I tried installing the one at getdeb, I got another error message, saying something about being incompatible with gimp-python. When I went to synaptic and tried to update or remove gimp-python, it told me it was going to remove ubuntu-desktop! I'm pretty sure I don't want to do that! I got the same results using apt-get.

OK, so you probably should go into Synaptic and remove all the Gimp stuff that's there. If it wants to remove Ubuntu Desktop, that's fine. UD is just a wrapper (a "metapackage") around a bunch of software, so it won't be removing the software itself, just the wrapper. No biggie.

After Gimp and gimp-python is completely removed, try again.

I think I remember losing ubuntu-desktop once before, and nothing worked. I ended up having to re-install Ubuntu. I looked up ubuntu-desktop, and found this: http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/ubuntu-desktop (http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/ubuntu-desktop). The list of things that depend on ubuntu-desktop is HUGE.

Typically you would remove Ubuntu-desktop in cases like this. Then, when you do your next dist-upgrade, you'd reinstall it just prior, and remove any conflicting packages. Google "ok to remove ubuntu-desktop" if you don't believe me ;)

OK, I think I understand now. I just have to *remember* to re install it (remembering is not my strong suit).
I removed ubuntu-desktop, and so was able to successfully install gimp-data from getdeb. Then I ran into problems. If I try to install gimp, it says "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libgimp2.0". When I try to install libgimp2.0 from getdeb, I get this: "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libglib2.0-0". A synaptic search shows that it is already installed, version 2.14.1-1ubuntu1. Could it be that I need a newer version?

Yep, you'll need matching, newer versions of those libs, and there is an order in which they need to be installed (which you are finding). Don't they have those libraries linked at getdeb?

They don't have them at getdeb. I found them at the Debian website. I was able to install a newer version of libglib, but then when I tried to install libgimp2.0, it said there was something wrong with libgtk2.0-0. I tried installing that and it tells me there's a conflict with "metacity". I don't know if I need metacity or not.

November 22nd, 2008, 07:54 PM
Yeah, it sounds like these packages won't work for your version of Ubuntu...you need a 7.10 version of the various GIMP packages, or you'll need to compile them for yourself. Metacity is what is used to manage windows on your screen and is pretty necessary, IIRC.

The other option is to upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04, for which getdeb has all the packages.

Usually when you are told you need a new version of GTK or metacity, that means you'll have to dist-upgrade or compile the packages yourself.

The button is there, ready to press, on my update manager, to upgrade to 8.04. How painful is it to do that? Will it mess up any "unofficial" programs I have installed? Would I have to re-install ubuntu-desktop first? I really don't want to have to spend hours trying to get things back to normal.

What do you mean by "unofficial" programs? You'd want to follow these instructions: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardyUpgrades#Known%20Problems

And yes, definitely reinstall ubuntu-desktop before upgrading (although I've forgotten it before and didn't run into any problems).

AJB, did you install the corresponding .deb for your Ubuntu release version?
I just ran the install via terminal and it removed the package but all is working now and I have to say.

Apart from the gimp head and gegl whats changed on the interface?

If you don't notice what's changed, you could go read this:

Thanks for the link.
By unofficial, I meant the ones that aren't part of the official Ubuntu repositories, that Ubuntu gives a warning about when you install it. I looked at my applications, and I'm not sure, but I think these may me some: Fontmatrix, KPov Modeler, Phatch, Simple backup restore.

I think the bigger worry would be applications for which you've included custom repositories in your sources file. You'd want to disable the repos before upgrading. Other than that, I don't see why you'd be in any trouble.

I have just tried the getdeb install, last night with the 2.6.2 release and today the 2.6.3 release. I get the same error when I try to load libgimp2.0. The package installer says "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libgtk2.0-0". I've done a check and apt-get install -f and generally pounded away at apt thinking I had corrupt tree. I've checked with dpkg and yep I do have libgtk2.0-0 installed and all is well. I can reload the ubuntu Gimp 2.4.5 version and all works. The newer gimp-data loads from the getdeb site but not the newer libgimp2.0. Any ideas?

I decided to wait, and not upgrade to hardy. It took me quite a while to get everything back the way it was, and when I tried to install Gimp again, It made me install newer versions of libpango1.0-0 and libpango1.0-common, which was kind of a hassle, but I'm very happy now because the GIMP it installed was a newer one than I had before, and it has a printing plugin that actually works the way it should, which was all I ever wanted to begin with! :)
