(http://sourceforge.jp/projects/gimp-painter/releases) is a patch that
adds two more tools that help in making images that feel more like using
a paint brush.
Here's another link about it.
It's actually pretty easy to apply the .diff to the ubuntu package.
In a terminal and with your source repos open it should be something like:
sudo apt-get install cdbs -y && sudo apt-get build-dep gimp -y &&
apt-get source gimp && wget
-P ~/gimp-2.6.7/debian/patches && cd gimp-2.6.7 && debuild binary && cd
&& sudo dpkg -i gimp-data_2.6.7-1ubuntu1_all.deb
(you only need the resulting "gimp" and "gimp-data" packages)
The above command should then give 2 new tools in your toolbox. (will
look like another paintbrush and ink tool) This is all best used with a
These instructions also work for Karmic and Lucid but can be applied to
earlier versions like gimp-2.6.6 and such. Also remember to pin gimp and
gimp-data in Synaptic if you don't want an update to overwrite your version.
I would imagine that the GIMP devs are looking at a sane way to
integrate this. Anyone with solid info please post.
