How I can install Gimp 2.8 and Gimp 2.9 on the same computer and work with both?

  • Why do you need to access Gimp 2.9? It is not stable yet and there have not been any releases. – user530873 Nov 19 '13 at 1:58

You can always just build it from the git repo (git://git.gnome.org/gimp), but if you really want bleeding edge tech all the time rather than something stable and well-documented, you may want to try gentoo or arch. Either way, you'd want branch master, so:

$ git clone git://git.gnome.org/gimp
$ cd gimp
$ git checkout master

and follow the instructions in INSTALL. You can just run the binaries from their location in that folder, no need to actually 'install' them to the root bin and lib directories.

If you want two conflicting versions of the same software accessible to aptitude, though, you will have to do some mucking about with package building.

  • That's an entirely different question. If you want an answer, I'd ask it separately. – astex Nov 19 '13 at 14:59
