Hi Hank,

I just downloaded the current daily build and will test GIMP 2.10 on
Ubuntu Studio cosmic, too. I'll report back.

Apart of random crashes, on Arch Linux not everything works as expected.

For example, to change the grid it's required to restart GIMP.

View > [x] Show Grid
Edit > Preferences > Default Image > Default Grid

The  Windows  menu is sometimes fishy, too.

If somebody else wants to test it, I added a script to download the
current daily build. The script does also get the public Ubuntu keys and
anything else needed, to automatically check the ISO against the
_signed_ checksum.
