Ubuntu – How to install Gimp 2.8’s help documentation on Ubuntu 12.04


Ubuntu 12.04 comes with Gimp 2.6, so I installed Gimp 2.8 using the instructions below:

sudo apt-get purge gimp*  
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp  
sudo apt-get update  
sudo apt-get install gimp

When try to open help, I get the message below. How do I install and configure the help for 2.8 on Ubuntu?

Dialog that says: "The GIMP user manual is not installed on your computer. You may either install the additional help package or change your preferences to use the online version". It has two buttons: "Cancel", and "Read Online".

Best Answer

Most likely, the PPA does not contain the required package for the documentation, or GIMP's documentation has not been made ready yet for 2.8.

In any case, try

apt-cache search gimp-help

and install the appropriate package for your language.
