Tutorial to install the latest version of GIMP on ubuntu



To start the installation of the new version, we are going to run commands that will add the repository that has a newer version of the software. Then we will update our local repository to take into account the information from the new repository.

Now open your terminal and type the following commands:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa: otto-kesselgulasch / gimp sudo apt-get update


Now we can finally download the latest version of our favorite tool. As soon as the order apt-get update finished, add this line:


sudo apt-get install gimp


If you already have a gimp installation in your computer, replace the previous line with these lines:


(optional) sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt upgrade gimp
