You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 atom : Depends: git
        Depends: gvfs-bin
 gimp : Depends: libgimp2.0 (>= 2.8.16) but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: libgimp2.0 (<= 2.8.16-z) but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: gimp-data (>= 2.8.16) but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: gimp-data (<= 2.8.16-z) but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: python-gtk2 (>= 2.8.0) but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: libbabl-0.1-0 (>= 0.1.10) but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: libgegl-0.3-0 (>= 0.3.0) but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: libpoppler-glib8 (>= 0.18.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I tried installing it through Discover (Kubuntu Software Center), but it claims that I need to get rid off atom in order to install GIMP. I need both. I haven't tried apt-get -f install as it's most likely going to delete atom. Is there a way to have both on my computer?

Run the following commands :

sudo apt-get install --fix-broken
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install gimp
  • Nope. Leaves me with exactly same error. Word by word. – J. Doe Sep 27 '16 at 20:17

  • Well, it worked, now you could explain me why regular way didn't work, how Kubuntu doesn't have Ubuntu's GIMP. And what was special about your way to didn't mess it all up. – J. Doe Sep 27 '16 at 20:38
  • @J.Doe , Gimp can be installed from the command line without adding the ppa , but you need to solve its dependencies , i proposed to add the ppa because it is the easy way. – GAD3R Sep 27 '16 at 21:16
