Thanks. Is there an easy to symlink because I would like avoid overwriting the already installed plug-ins?

Hello everybody,

nobody can say right now when GIMP 2.10 will be released, but the past
weeks have seen the first development release which interestingly
enough is called 2.9.2. I'm sure you're all fired up for exciting new
features like:

- Higher color depths
- On-canvas preview for many filters
- Higher-quality downscaling
- Many new, updated and even experimental tools
- And much more, see:

I've packaged it in COPR, to install it, do this (as root):

dnf copr enable nphilipp/gimp-unstable
dnf install gimp-unstable gimp-unstable-help-browser

It comes with a nice drawback, too: In order to coexist with the stable
version of GIMP, I had to put it into a separate prefix, /opt/gimp-2.9.
That means that to use any packaged 3rd party plugins, you must symlink
them from the stable plugin folder /usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins (or
/usr/lib/... on 32bit) to where the unstable version finds it, i.e.
/opt/gimp-2.9/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins (or .../lib/...).

Have fun with it, and as always with unstable software: save early,
save often.

Please add me to Cc if you respond as I'm not subscribed to the list.
