I am trying to install Gimp on a 64 bit PC with Ubuntu 14.10. I have added the dedicated PPA
but I am not able to install Gimp due to its reliance on a lot of 32 bit libraries (nor was I able without the PPA).
For instance it depends on
libgegl, which does not seem to be in the repositories, according to Synaptic. I can find the debugging symbols
libgegl-0.2-0-dbg:i386, but if I try to install those (not that they would help, just to see), I find that they depend on a lot of
i386 stuff, and this in turn would force me to remove a lot of important 64 bit libraries, such as
liblapack3, on which
numpy depends. Same happens with other dependencies such as
So, while there seems to be a 64 bit version of Gimp, it seems to rely on 32 bit libraries which are not installable in my system, and often do not appear into Synaptic at all.
What is the way to install Gimp?
EDIT As request, I post the terminal output
