In the future, instead of just removing the gimp package to downgrade, you need to remove all its other parts, too, such as libgimp. This can be done with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove *gimp*
or using the Status (installed) and search (gimp) features in Synaptic if you want a GUI.

reinstalled and was able to install gimp 2.10. Thanks :)
Glad you solved it! For anyone else trying to install/update gimp to its latest version - 2.10.6 at the moment - I did via flatpak as suggested on gimp's site https://www.gimp.org/downloads/
Without each other's help there ain't no hope for us :happy:

No need to use flatpak. We have it in our test repos.

I know "there's no" need to use flatpak, I was simply pointing out the fact that you can install it that way. And for the record, I'd have used the test repo method if 'd known but I didn't till I found this thread.

I'm using MX 16.1. How can I upgrade Gimp to 2.10.6. The latest version in the test repo is 2.8.22. Also, I prefer using Synaptic because it maintains a log of changes, whereas I don't think the MX Package Installer doesn't (at least not in the same place?).

The build-dependencies for a newer GTK 3 than we have available in MX 15 prevented me from building it for that release. We do have flatpak available for MX 15, so you could try the GIMP flatpack. There are also AppImages, but some things may not work in those, or so I've read.

You can read the apt history log in the MX updater UI. Programs that installed outside the apt system won't appear in the log; flatpaks for example.

I updated Gimp from the test repo and it doesn't open anymore. The flatpak version does but the one from the test repo doesn't.

Try removing all parts of gimp:

Code: Select all

sudo apt remove *gimp*
Then reinstalling gimp from the test repo. If that doesn't work, does running "gimp" in the terminal show any errors?

Yes, it does return an error

Code: Select all

gimp: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgegl-0.4.so.0: undefined symbol: babl_format_with_space
