For Ubuntu 18.04 users who stick to the PPA build of GIMP Image Editor 2.10.22, support for Python scripts has been restored.
Support for Python scripts has been removed because the old GTK2 and Python2 libraries have been removed from the Ubuntu Universe repository and there were no dependencies when uploading the GIMP package to the PPA.
However, Ubuntu 18.04 was ignored. It meets all the dependencies to build the required functionality. So I re-added it. I hope it’s not too late :).And the package was built entirely through the rules from otto-kesselgulasch PPA..
Install GIMP 2.10.22 on Ubuntu 18.04 via PPA.
Note I’m only doing basic image editing using GIMP and it looks like it’s working, but I can’t test the functionality further.
1.) Open a terminal from the system application launcher. Once open, run the command to add the PPA.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/gimp
Enter the user password for the sudo prompt (without asterisk feedback) and press Enter to continue.
2.) For older versions of GIMP
.deb The package has been installed. Please upgrade via SoftwareUpdater (must be installed)
gimp-python Manual) Utility.
Or run the apt command in your terminal to install GIMP.
sudo apt update sudo apt install gimp gimp-gmic gimp-python
If you have an older version installed, it is recommended to run it
sudo apt upgrade This will also update the required babl and gegl libraries.
How to restore:
To restore GIMP to the stock version of the main Ubuntu repository, run the command to remove the PPA.
sudo apt install ppa-purge && sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/gimp
