GIMP is now available for testing in the beta channel.
install with: sudo snap install --beta gimp
There is an issue that I’ve seen where the file chooser does not list the home directory as a “place” in the left-hand menu. I can’t work out whether this is a problem with how I’ve built the package or not, yet.
Gave this a quick test, it works, but I have a few observations
You’ve defined the build-packages: but not the stage-packages:. While snapcraft will try and bundle relevant .so files pulled in via build-packages: it is not perfect and also not magical:sparkles:
You should make sure all the runtime requirements are satisfied by listing them in stage-packages:
No theme integration
I can see you’re using the desktop-gtk2 helper but there is no theme integration. Possibly due to no stage-packages: mentioned above.
Python is required
Looks like you need to bundle Python in stage-packages: too because I see lots of warnings. I’m guessing some plugins won’t function. Also due to no stage-packages: mentioned above.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you, installing now.
This is an everyday tool for me, so I’ll have an extensive workout for it.
Really hope you can get GEGL and 2.10 working, that’s what I really need.
Immediate reactions: Godlike package.
self-configuring color management is going to be a bit weird, usually I keep my monitor profiles in a hidden directory (easy fix, make them unhidden - loading it appears to work I’ll test again soon when I have more time) but I have no idea how things work with org.gnome.whatever system stuff, and whether snaps will automatically be able to figure all that out.
as Martin says, python is a definite must, however that works with the snap-dependency system.
Just ran into a system-stalling bug with a GEGL op:
(gimp:1836): GEGL-WARNING **: Failed to set operation type gegl:mosaic, using a passthrough op instead
(gimp:1836): GEGL-WARNING **: Failed to set operation type gegl:bump-map, using a passthrough op instead

Not sure if this is a problem native to 3.8.20 (as I’ve used 2.10.git for years now).
I tried getting the edge version snapped last year (I think?) with the guy that runs the famous ppa. I can’t find his (admittedly super-strange) approach to getting a semi-working build, might not be publicly available. If you hadn’t seen it, here was my very unsuccessful attempt at snapping gimp-git:
Don’t have time to keep poking, but I’ll do so later. Thank you again!
Had a quick test. Things are definitely improved in terms of providing the required runtime requirement. I’m puzzled why there is no desktop theme integration, you are using the desktop-gtk2 helper. @didrocks@seb128 could you take a look, I’m just stepping on a plane…
Hi everyone, I’m new to .snap’s and arleady like the idea, but not surprisengly got a problem here.
When I run ‘sudo snap install --beta gimp’ I got ‘error: cannot install “gimp”: snap not found’, what’s wrong with the command?
I’m running on Ubuntu 14.04 updated to 17.04 (with errors two times, but it didn’t affect on something) 32bit with GnomeDE installed. Tried to run ‘sudo apt-get install snapd’/‘sudo apt-get install snap’/‘sudo apt-get install snapcraft’ - no changes.
