Gimp 2.8 on Ubuntu 12.04

The new version of GIMP didn't make it into the current Ubuntu LTS release, so here are some lines to install it (from an inofficial repo) easily:

sudo apt-get remove gimp
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gimp

Then your installed GIMP can do YMCK, one-window-mode and much more :-)
