    Re: How to install gimp-2.8.0-RC1.tar.bz2 ubuntu 10.04 or higher?

    On 12.04 - easiest way to fill deps
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-dep gimp
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove libgegl-0.0-dev libbabl-0.0-0-dev
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libavformat-dev libavcodec-dev valac-0.16 \
    graphviz ruby1.9.1-dev liblua5.1-0-dev
    additionally if desired
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libopenexr-dev libopenraw-dev libexiv2-dev \
    libsdl1.2-dev libgs-dev libjasper-dev
    optional
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install checkinstall

    Re: How to install gimp-2.8.0-RC1.tar.bz2 ubuntu 10.04 or higher?

    Ok here is the complete tutorial combining all the different recourses on how to compile / install gimp 2.8 in Ubuntu 12.04 from source.

    or watch my video tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4Um8...ature=youtu.be

    first open your update manager and update you Ubuntu to the latest kernel and state.

    then
    1)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    2)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cvs subversion git-core mercurial
    3)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-dep gimp
    4)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove libgegl-0.0-dev libbabl-0.0-0-dev
    5)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libavformat-dev libavcodec-dev valac-0.16 \
    graphviz ruby1.9.1-dev liblua5.1-0-dev
    6)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libopenexr-dev libopenraw-dev libexiv2-dev \
    libsdl1.2-dev libgs-dev libjasper-dev
    7)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install checkinstall
    8)
    Code:
    cd /tmp
    9)
    Code:
    mkdir gimp_build && cd gimp_build
    the following three are only valid for that session if you for any reason restart the terminal, you'll have to execute them again
    10)
    Code:
    export PATH=/opt/gimp-2.8/bin:$PATH
    11)
    Code:
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gimp-2.8/lib/pkgconfig
    12)
    Code:
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gimp-2.8/lib
    Remember 10, 11 and 12 have to be executed again if you restart your session.
    13)
    Code:
    git clone git://git.gnome.org/babl
    14)
    Code:
    cd babl
    15)
    Code:
    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/gimp-2.8
    16)
    Code:
    make
    17)
    Code:
    sudo make install
    18)
    Code:
    cd ..
    19)
    Code:
    git clone git://git.gnome.org/gegl
    20)
    Code:
    cd gegl
    21)
    Code:
    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/gimp-2.8
    22)
    Code:
    make
    23)
    Code:
    sudo make install
    Now take the gimp-2.8.0-RC1.tar.bz2 and drag and drop it into /tmp/gimp_build


    __________________________________________________ ____________________________
    or type
    Code:
    cd ..
    and execute this one to download gimp
    Code:
    wget ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.8/gimp-2.8.0-RC1.tar.bz2
    skip 24 if you did this!
    __________________________________________________ _____________________________



    24)
    Code:
    cd ..
    25)
    Code:
    tar -xjf gimp-2.8.0-RC1.tar.bz2
    26)
    Code:
    cd gimp-2.8.0-RC1
    27)
    Code:
    ./configure --prefix=/opt/gimp-2.8
    28)
    Code:
    make
    29)
    Code:
    sudo make install
    Now execute gimp in this window and gimp 2.8 should open
    30)
    Code:
    gimp
    Last thing a nice shortcut
    open a new terminal session
    31)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends gnome-panel
    32)
    Code:
    gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new
    you'll see a pop up
    under command brows to /opt/gimp 2.8/ bin and select gimp2.8
    click on the icon and find the gimp icon select it
    Done

    You can drag and drop that launcher to the sidebar.

    Awesome tutorial many thanks!!! =D>

    One small thing, I can't drag-drop the icon to gnome-shell sidebar and once gimp is opened I can't right-click on it's icon and select "Add to Favorites"

    31) Code:
    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends gnome-panel
    32) Code:
    gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new
    you'll see a pop up to create a launcher on the desktop.
    You can drag that one over the side-panel and you have to move it a little bit around till it takes same space to be dropped onto. Worked on my 12.04. Maybe you can try to pull from the application menu gimp as resent used to pull onto it.


    sorry for adding this a little late you may try this one as described at the bottom of the page

    If you already have alacarte installed open terminal and type alacarte.

    If not
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install alacarte
    and then type alacarte.

    Re: How to install gimp-2.8.0-RC1.tar.bz2 ubuntu 10.04 or higher?

    Hello

    @David : Have you tried the tip on 10.04 ?

    Because I just can't get any clear information on wether I can or not install GIMP 2.8-rc1 on Ubuntu 10.04, for I would like to test it in order to write a news in French about GIMP 2.8 release, but I usually don't upgrade Ubuntu before a few weeks after a new LTS*release.
    I askod on…
    - ubuntu-fr
    - a blog where I discovered Matt Walker's repo
    - Emailed Matt Walker
    - Posted on Diaspora

    … but still no clear answer…

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: How to install gimp-2.8.0-RC1.tar.bz2 ubuntu 10.04 or higher?

    Awesome! Thanks so much for this tutorial! It worked without a hitch.. I'd been looking and trying to upgrade from 2.6 since I ventured from windows into the linux/ubuntu world a couple months ago...

    It's funny because while I was stuck back in 2.6, I discovered the fx foundry script package, which I had never had on my windows load. Now I will be trying to figure out how to get that into this 2.8 install.. I'm looking to figure out how to get pspi installed on ubuntu too..

    Code:
    root@bt:~/tmp/gimp# sudo apt-get build-dep gimp
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to find a source package for gimp
    I have been trying to install gimp 2.8 on Ubuntu Lucid. I have not made it yet. As far as I see I need to add a source. Definitely there is no such source in the source of software. I downloaded the source and gave the command in the source folder.

    So, can someone please help me what I should do? thanks in advance.
