Installation instructions for GIMP 2.2
Installation instructions for GIMP 2.3
--------------------------------------
There are some basic steps to building and installing The GIMP.
GIMP 2.2 replaces GIMP 2.0. It is advised that you uninstall GIMP 2.0
before installing GIMP 2.2. If you want to keep GIMP 2.0 installed in
parallel to GIMP 2.2, you have to choose a separate prefix which is
not in your default library search path.
GIMP 2.3 replaces earlier GIMP 2.x versions. It is advised that you
uninstall them before installing GIMP 2.3. If you want to keep your
older GIMP 2.x installation in parallel to GIMP 2.4, you have to
choose a separate prefix which is not in your default library search
path.
GIMP 2.2 is fully backward compatible to GIMP 2.0. Plug-ins and
GIMP 2.x is fully backward compatible to GIMP 2.0. Plug-ins and
scripts written for GIMP 2.0 will continue to work and don't need to
be changed nor recompiled to be used with GIMP 2.2.
