    Well I couldn't figure out how to so I asked in DA chats and well heres what you need to type into terminal.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove gimp
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:matthaeus123/mrw-gimp-svn
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gimp
    Paste in one, with ctrl+shift+v and enter your password if prompted.
    Enjoy :D

    Sorry if this is kinda basic knowledge but I didn't know how so yeah....

    This does uninstall your GIMP 2.6 install.

    that adds the repository (where the terminal gets packages to download) where gimp 2.7.3 is i think.

    It adds the server repository to the "to check" list whenever the standard system-update check is running. If this list is added, the next update (hence the "sudo apt-get update" ;)) says that there's a new package to download: Da Gimp!

    well i email Matt, the guy who made the ppa. He said that he can't compile on Ubuntu 10.10 and trying to figure how to fix it. In the meantime, i play with the tool with Ubuntu 11.04, the cage transformation is working in this version :)

    Cheers

    Hey there!

    I've wrote a small script to automate the compilation process of the gimp 2.7.x in it's latest development version, from it's git repository. This script have been tested under Ubuntu 11.x, but it should suit to any linux distribution satisfying natively the gimp's build requirements.

    More here:

    Every time I open Gimp 2.7 at Ubuntu I have to go windows->single-window mode.
    Is there a way to save this setting? its small but annoying.
    Thanks in advance.

    I remember this was a common problem in the early 2.7s .. I don't know whether they fixed it in the latest version, though. Try downloading the latest 2.7 and test it again, if it doesn't work, you will have to click it everytime you start Gimp. But hey, 2.7 is a developer's version, not a fully finished one, so don't expect everything from it ;)

    I did open nine JPG images and did rotate them, then did I press Ctrl-S to save them in same fromat and with same settings, but instead of quick save did Gimp give me an option to save as a .xcg, not to over write or to save as a .JPG

    I then took Save as, but it was no longer "Save as", it was more "Save as xcf or compress to archive", it did not give me ant option to "Save as" jpg.

    I was forced to take export like I did work in a older Microsoft program; is this a bug ir has the Gimp team gone totally nuts?

    This is supposed to happen in Gimp 2.7.X and further series of Gimp (2.8 and up). They want to get the "save" and "save as" functions to save as XCF only. The "Export" menu was added for JPG and every other format.
    I dont see any real reason as well but meh.. I won't complain about such a minor thing as long as Gimp is progressing.
