Can't install gimp anymore?

Asked by shudouken on 2012-02-19

Alright, my gimp was running just fine, then I made an update + restarted the system (2 weeks ago), and it told me gimp had to be removed

Now when i try to install gimp it says

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gimp: Depends: python-gtk2 (>= 2.8.0) but 2.24.0-2 is to be installed
      Depends: libc6 (>= 2.11) but 2.13-20ubuntu5 is to be installed
      Depends: libfontconfig1 (>= 2.8.0) but 2.8.0-3ubuntu2 is to be installed
      Depends: libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 (>= 2.22.0) but 2.24.0-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
      Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.31.2) but 2.30.0-0ubuntu4 is to be installed
      Depends: libgs9 (>= 8.61.dfsg.1) but 9.04~dfsg-0ubuntu11.5 is to be installed
      Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.24.0) but 2.24.6-0ubuntu5 is to be installed
      Depends: libgudev-1.0-0 (>= 147) but 1:173-0ubuntu4.1 is to be installed
      Depends: libjpeg62 (>= 6b1) but 6b1-1ubuntu2 is to be installed
      Depends: librsvg2-2 (>= 2.14.4) but 2.34.1-2 is to be installed
      Depends: zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4) but 1:1.2.3.4.dfsg-3ubuntu3 is to be installed

so I googled this for a bit and found a solution, and added the following ppa's
ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
ppa:ricotz/testing

I updated everything and gimp installed fine, but nautilus won't work anymore, I can't right or left click on the desktop, and the gnome themes are jumbled up, so i rolled back the changes via ppa-purge

Will there be a fix for this sometime soon? Or is no one else having this problem?
Thanks in advance

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy gimp

Thanks

"Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.31.2) but 2.30.0-0ubuntu4 is to be installed"

The gimp package in the Ubuntu development version (Precise/12.04) only requires libglib2.0 2.24.0.
I'm guessing you're trying to install some PPA version of gimp?

oh thanks, i had a ppa i didn't know of that had gimp o.o
only realised it with the output of "lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy gimp"
