It appears it is no longer possible to link sane/xsane to the 2.10.xx version of The Gimp?

@przemo Yes just :-) build the dependencies(updated babl & gegl slackbuilds from current, maybe a few other things I forget), then build gimp 2.10.x from the slackbuild from current.

It's a bit fiddly but worth it in my opinion.

slackbuilds are scripts for building slackware packages from source code. If you look at any slackware mirror in the slackware64-current/source folder you will find xap/gimp , l/babl & l/gegl folders download them. Then run as root the slackbuild scripts in each babl.SlackBuild, gegl.SlackBuild , gimp.SlackBuild. Install each built package before building the next with upgradepkg. I don't think anything but gimp depends on them but I may be wrong be prepared for breakage. Also gimp 2.8 will not run with the updates to babl and gegl so have the original packages available in case you need to go back. If any build fails it's up to you to sort out the failures. As I said it can be a bit fiddly if you're not used to building source code. In fact maybe look at flatpack or appimage versions of gimp 2.10 which I have no experience with unfortunately but you may find easier than a mess of source code dependencies.

They are source code packages and will not work without running the slackbuild scripts. And the command you should use is upgradepkg

I think you have to build the packages because (some of them or maybe all of them) are built with a newer version of glibc

https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackw...urrent/source/

For a list of additional packages required for gimp 2.10, there is post 23, in this thread. Babl and gegl must be upgraded too.

Maybe i ll give it a try the very next days, maybe not. I am a bit curious but the important question is how gimp 2.10 compares to 2.8. Specifically, if it adds some functionallity actually needed for my workflow - or if it solves a technical problem that i am unaware of.

PS: gimp-plugin-bimp (1.18) from slackbuild does not work for me with gimp 2.18 (due to gegl) so i ve installed gimp-plugin-bimp (1.16) - but this is not gimp's "tech problem"
