The main GIMP building instructions are at Hacking:Building. This page is for Linux-specific additions to that page.



GIMP depends on a lot of other packages in addition to babl, gegl, libmypaint and mypaint-brushes. The requirements change frequently, but on a freshly installed Ubuntu 19.10 system in October 2019, this was enough for most of GIMP's dependencies (there are still a few missing formats, but it builds):
