With Gimp 2.7.3 you can now enable single window mode. This allows new users that are use to Adobe Photoshop feel at home. In this tutorial we will install the newest release of GIMP in Arch Linux with two quick commands. Let's Get started!

Arch Linux has so many different ways you can set it up and configure it. For example there is no primary desktop defined such as GNOME 3, GNOME 2, KDE, XFCE, Fluxbox and so on. No matter what desktop enviroment you have installed using the good old fashion terminal to complete this task is probaly the best idea. Lets get down to install GIMP.

Open a terminal window.

note: If you have not setup sudo access for your user you will need to switch to the root user to install. (su command)

Type sudo pacman -S gimp  (Note:  The capital S)


A while back decided to pull gimp out of the default install to make sure the install .ISO file would fit on a cd. You now need to install this if you would like to take advantage of this great tool.
