This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I suggest you to upgrade to Gimp 2.8

GIMP 2.8 stable installation

If you're upgrading from an older GIMP version please visit the link and pay attention to the 'dist-upgrade' command (also if you want to revert to GIMP 2.6.x)

If you're just installing GIMP for the first time on your current system install:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gimp

GIMP Plugin Registry for GIMP 2.8 installation

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry
