How do I get GIMP 2.8?

I tried using sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp and got this message:

You are about to add the following PPA to your system:

This PPA could break your installed OS if you use Ubuntu series < Precise. There are dependency issues for Oneiric Ocelot (11.10). Only use it if you know what you do!

There are known issues in Precise Pangolin (12.04).

Yes the problem with oneric not precise.

Just press Enter.

Then run sudo apt-get update

After that run sudo apt-get install gimp

Known issues are ok. Every application has bugs. Isn't it.
