Install GIMP 2.10 + On Ubuntu 16.04
Here are some instructions on installing GIMP on Ubuntu 16.04. If you are like me then you are not ready to upgraded to Ubuntu 18 because of the software and apps that are not yet able to run on Ubuntu 18. Therefore we are going to have to update GIMP a little differently. These instructions here are specifically for those running Ubuntu 16.04 who want to Upgrade GIMP to version 2.10+. There are a couple different ways you can install it into your Ubuntu 16.04 system so I am going to sho9w you how to do them here and now.
SNAP Installation for GIMP 2.10
Open up your terminal and insert this line of code. This will install SNAP that we will use to install GIMP 2.10.
sudo apt install snapd
Next run this line of code, this will install GIMP.
snap install gimp
Install GIMP Via PPA
If the above process does not work for you then you can try to install GIMP via PPA. Open up your terminal and enter these commands one at a time.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gimp
Install GIMP Via Flatpak
You can also install GIMP via Flatpak but this method did not work for me. Here are the recommended steps if you want to give this a try. Open up your terminal and enter these commands.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
sudo apt update
sudo apt install flatpak
Now to install GIMP enter in this command.
flatpak install https://flathub.org/repo/appstream/org.gimp.GIMP.flatpakref
You can run the program with this command.
flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP
Install GIMP 2.10 Via Source Code
If all else fails you can install GIMP 2.10 via the source code on the website. Here is the download link for GIMP 2.10.
Ubuntu 18 Install GIMP 2.10
If you are already running Ubuntu 18 you can very easily use Flatpak to install GIMP 2.10. To make sure that you have Flatpak install click on this Ubuntu link here. Or you can visit this webpage if you are running a different OS. After you are done with that head back over to the GIMP download page and download GIMP 2.10.
