GIMP for Mandrake 10 ???

Last Modified: 2013-12-06
I have been looking at the new GIMP 2.0... and I want to install it in my Mandrake 10 box, but I do not find any place where I could download a RPM for Mandrake-Gimp.

Does any one know where I could download the GIMP for Mandrake 10 in RPM ???

I think gimp is available in mandrake cd. It was in mandrake 9.1 and it should be in mandrake 10. It seems that you did not select gimp during setup.

Get the mandrake 10 cd and install the rpm from there.


if you dont have the cd anymore try http://rpmfind.net 

I hope you have the cd. But you can see its web page.

Go to http://www.urpmi.org/easyurpmi/ and follow the directions for configuring urpmi. In particular, select 10.0 official for the distribution and make sure you check the "contrib" source. If you're new to this, pay particular attention to blowing away your existing sources. After configuring urpmi, run the following command (as root):

urpmi gimp2_0

Enjoy the GIMP, version 2.0.

If you're feeling really feisty, select a "cooker" distribution. Be prepared for an adventure, however.


Hi  rjkimble,

I thing you got my point, but the web site you sent me to is complicated to understand.

How can I download gimp 2.0 ???
