[PPA Update] GIMP 2.10.22 with support for Python scripts on Ubuntu 18.04

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..

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.
