Personally I may need to learn about apt-pinning just for the sake of curiosity of learning, but I think I would rather rely only on mx for my coming installations as long as it's enough for me. And it seems MX18 will be.

Had the same issue - GIMP do not launch.
First I did this:

CLI solution: sudo apt-get install -t mx libbabl-0.1-0
And nothing changed, visually.
Then I did this:

Open Synaptic, select libbabl-0.1-0, use Package -> Force version to select the MX version and apply.
- it should be done via menu of Synaptic (on the top of window), not context menu. AND IT SOLVED THE ISSUE.
Thanks. Problem with GIMP start solved.

when package is installed you must add --reinstall option in the terminal

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -t mx libbbabl-0.1-0 --reinstall
and set package to hold

Code: Select all

sudo apt-mark hold libbabl-0.1-0
for those with an eye for the finer details...

If I recall correctly, you enabled deb-multimedia repo, which was why you needed to hold/pin that package.

I assume Darodaros did the same?
Desktop: Intel i5-4460, 16GB RAM, Intel integrated graphics
Clevo N130WU-based Ultrabook: Intel i7-8550U (Kaby Lake R), 16GB RAM, Intel integrated graphics (UEFI)
ASUS X42D laptop: AMD Phenom II, 6GB RAM, Mobility Radeon HD 5400
