Merry Christmas everyone! My first post as a new Linux user.

The gimp version in ubuntu software center is 2.6, will it automatically updated to 2.8.2 after installation?

How to install all the plugins as we can do in Linux Mint?

Thank you in advance!

You should add the following PPA

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

and install

sudo apt-get install gimp

You will get GIMP 2.8.2 :) Enjoy!
