Sooo... I got instructions and commands for installing the new and improved Gimp 2.8 on my newly upgraded Precise Pangolin from Noobslab.
Everything seemed to be running smoothly on the terminal after the first commands, but after "sudo apt-get install gimp" I got an error message and I do not know what went wrong or how to fix it. Would appreciate some help. Here is the terminal process after the third command and ultimate error message:
verori@verori-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install gimp
