I am using Fedora 17 64 bit. I would like to install the 2.6 version of gimp (current version is 2.8).
I can't just use
yum install gimp because that will install 2.8
I think gimp ruined the Ctrl-S save functionality by forcing users to save to .xvf format and nothing else. The gimp forums clearly state they are unapologetic about this.
So that means to crop an image and save it out goes from two clicks: Ctrl-S and Ok to about 9 clicks. File->export->click your file extension->pick your options->confirm your options->export the file->close the window to confirm you want to delete the file you just saved.
To gimp's credit, version 2.6 is rock solid software. How can I get Gimp 2.6 to run on my Fedora 17?
