I've taken various bits of guides online and various tweaks. All you have to do is download the file, unzip it. Then in the file manager go to your home folder, show hidden files, delete or move your old .gimp-2.8 configuration folder out of the way, and replace with the new one. Then load gimp. Then me know if it works for you or if it fails.
Update: Icon were blurry in the original icon theme. I've patched them all up to be much clearer.
Update2: The drop here text is now gone and the default background when loading is the same dark grey.
Update3: Now on github github.com/doctormo/GimpPs
If you installed Gimp as a snap in Ubuntu, the install folder is here:
If you didn't find it at ~/.config/GIMP/2.10, then it's probably in the snap folder. If you can't remember how you installed it, entering 'which gimp' in the Terminal will tell you where it is.
Works fine for me :
Ubuntu 19.10, Gimp 2.10.
extract the folder .gimp-2.8 into : ~/.config/GIMP
Just remove the folder ~/.config/GIMP/2.10 OR just type "rm -R ~/.config/GIMP/2.10"
OR just type "mv ~/.config/GIMP/.gimp-2.8 ~/.config/GIMP/2.10"
Thank you a lot, I was lost between photoshop and gimp, and I couldn't understant how the gimp interface is organized (I was a photoshop user once).
This is the way how I tried to do it:
- I could find gimp 2.10 configuration folder here: home/<username>/.config/GIMP/2.10 --> renamed to 2.10.old
- download the zip file from here and unzip it
- copy .gimp-2.8 folder from your zip archive into home/<username>/.config/GIMP/
- rename the folder from .gimp-2.8 to 2.10
Then I started GIMP but no any changes.
The strange for me: I've tried it again and even if I deleted 2.10 folders completely so this folder: home/<username>/.config/GIMP/ remained empty, GIMP could start normally (of course without your tweaks). Is it OK?
Could you advise what did I do wrong?
Thanks a lot!
UPDATE: I found another place: if I use this another configuration folder: /home/<username>/snap/gimp/current/.config/GIMP/ and do every steps I describes above I can see some changes (for example: Preferences-->Interface-->Themes is using PsIcons) but the icons remain the original GIMP icons and I cannot see any changes in menu structure. (how can I attach screenshots into my comment?)
Could you give advice about the full solution for 2.10?
