Install GIMP 2.6 On Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat"


Here is a guide to install GIMP 2.6 on Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat". I still like to use GIMP for editing my screenshots, pictures and building logo's and think it's one of the best programs to use for editing them. Installing it is real simple....




GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.
