Get new Gimp's version @ Ubuntu

Today i found out that Ubuntu (& family) don't have access to the latest version of Gimp through repositories.

We're stuck with version 2.4.2 instead the new version 2.4.5.

Only Hardy Heron (8.04) will have access to it..
So lets make this happen sonner :D

  • Edit the souce list:
$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

  • And add:
deb http://apt.schmidtke-hb.de gutsy main
deb-src http://apt.schmidtke-hb.de gutsy main

  • Save and close, return to the terminal and type:
$ wget apt.schmidtke-hb.de/aptrepository.asc
$ sudo apt-key add aptrepository.asc
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

  • If you don't have Gimp yet installed, just type:
$ sudo apt-get install gimp

That's it!
