Gimpshop am I crazy? Where can I download it from?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2013
I have used Ubuntu on and off since 9.something and have downloaded Gimpshop because as a designer very much in the windows / mac world I just cant get on with GIMP without having my hand held a bit.
So I decided this is it, the time has come to move from Windows to Ubuntu with version 13.04, I weaned myself off Dreamweaver, and reassured myself that GIMP can do everything a web designer really needs in a graphics program.
Imagine my dismay when I install GIMP and cannot for the life of me find Gimpshop ANYWHERE all I find are links to pages which no longer exist, one version which wouldn't install, source code with more complicated instructions than a meccano time-machine and a million windows and mac versions of the software.
Have I missed something? Can anyone point me in the direction of a download of Gimpshop for a humble user of Ubuntu 13.04 64Bit?
Please help me before the windows itch pulls me back for one last photoshop hit.
How to Install Gimpshop on Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 16, 2010
Here is how I installed Gimpshop on Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10, which is a variation of Karmic Koala 9.10. Gimp appears not to have been installed in UNR by default. From a terminal I ran sudo apt-get remove. Received a message that Gimp was not installed. I then followed the instructions at this site:
I installed the Gimpshop deb file from the terminal as instructed in the above link. Run Gimpshop the first time also from terminal as per the instructions by typing gimp to complete the installation of Gimpshop.
Next I created a launcher menu item for Gimpshop. I first found and dloaded an icon for the launcher. Got my icon from here:
TIP: When you save the file for the icon, change the .jpg extension to .svg
To create launcher in UNR 9.10 I went to System> Main Menu> Graphics> +New Item. This will open the Launcher Properties. Next I typed the following in the appli

I just installed gimpshop (yes yes I know it's old and not being developed for anymore but I wanted it). So I installed it from .deb (with minor help from getlibs, I'm on 64 bit jaunty) and started it. I was greeted by the gimpshop splash screen, followed by....normal gimp. Nothing changed. The keyboard shortcuts are still the same and the user interface is identical (and very non photoshop I might add).
So is there something I missed? I'm still learning graphics and I love gimp but I would like to have transferrable skills as I learn and I just don't see learning gimp paying off even close to as much as learning photoshop. It sucks, but we live in a Windows world of Photoshop graphics. Everything else is just 'the other stuff'.
Anyway, thanks for any suggestions, I've installed from .deb and compiled the source and both are giving me a gimp in gimpshop's clothing.

Does anybody know why gimpshop is opening in different windows instead of one?
How to Properly install Gimpshop so it does NOT break the Gimp
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 26, 2008
Gimpshop is a hack on an older version of the Gimp (version 2.2). It tries to rearrange the menus so that they look more like Photoshop.
Gimpshop is old and has not been updated for some time. So please note that you can no longer print from gimpshop in Hardy Heron (since it uses the older gimp-print system). If you want to print your creations, load your image into another program (like the Gimp 2.4.5) and print from there.
Around the net you will see sites explain that all you need to do to install gimpshop on Hardy Heron is the following:
1. Download the .DEB package for gimphop from the gimpshop website. ( http://www.gimpshop.com/ )
2. Run the following command in an administrators account in Terminal:
sudo dpkg -i (path to gimpshop package)
3. To run gimpshop, run the following in a Terminal:
4. (Optional) Create a menu item in GNOME, KDE etc for gimpshop
And yes for a SHORT period of time, you can get BOTH the gimp and gimpsh
How to Install GIMPshop

I downloaded the GIMPshop .deb package and installed it. Then I ran GIMP but nothing seemed different.
I'm confused. Is GIMPshop it's own program intended to be ran independent of GIMP? If so, how do I run it after installing it? If not, how do I install GIMPshop AS PART OF my original GIMP installation?
Anyone know how to install GIMPshop? Thanks!!!

Has anyone used it? I thought I'd post it, so people who want Photoshop on Ubuntu will be happy. xD
It claims to be a hack of GIMP that makes it similar to Photoshop. Has anyone ever used it and can confirm it's striking similar to Photoshop?
How do i run GIMPshop?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 5, 2009
Just downloaded GIMPshop to see what it is like. I downloaded a .deb package and installed it using GDebi. Now i don't know where to open it up. Its not in my menu and i don't know what to type to run the application. Anyone able to help?
Also since installing it Gimp has stopped opening up. I'm assuming thats cause its conflicting with the GIMPshop install. How do i go about uninstalling GIMPshop if i want to go back to Gimp? Its not showing up in synaptic package manager
Status of Gimpshop? Install on Maverick 10.10?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 21, 2010
Is Gimpshop still being maintained and developed? It vaguely appears to be stagnant from outward appearances. It seems like a great idea (and I have used in the past), but I am not sure it is being actively maintained. Was this project abandoned, and if so do you know why?
I would like to install on Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 in an AMD64 situation. Is that possible? It really solves quite a few issues for people trained on Photoshop.
True you could try to relearn with GIMP, but every time I work with the program, a lot of stuff seems like a pain in the *** way to complete a task. Gimpshop on the other hand seemed to fix a lot of that.

Hi, today I was surfing the web and I found this application "GIMPshop" (http://www.gimpshop.com/). Its a mod for GIMP trying to imitate the GUI of Photoshop. Also some terms are changed to match the Photoshop GUI.
So what do you think? This will stop users complaining about GIMP?
