March 31, 2014, 1:38 PM — The GIMP is a great image editor, but so is Photoshop. Here's how you can make the GIMP look like Photoshop in Linux.
1. Open a terminal window.
2. Type in the following commands then hit Enter after each.
For GIMP 2.8, use these commands:
mv ~/.gimp-2.8 ~/.gimp-2.8.orig-backup
wget -O gimp-2.8.zip http://goo.gl/hwXdsJ
unzip gimp-2.8.zip -d ~/ && rm gimp-2.8.zip
For GIMP 2.9, use these commands:
mv ~/.config/GIMP/2.9 ~/.config/GIMP/2.9.orig-backup
wget -O gimp-2.9.zip http://goo.gl/CM0gL9
unzip gimp-2.9.zip -d ~/.config/GIMP/ && rm gimp-2.9.zip
3. To undo the changes, use these commands.
For GIMP 2.8:
rm -r ~/.gimp-2.8
mv ~/.gimp-2.8.orig-backup ~/.gimp-2.8
For GIMP 2.9:
rm -r ~/.config/GIMP/2.9
mv ~/.config/GIMP/2.9.orig-backup ~/.config/GIMP/2.9
So the guy doctormo from deviantart configured gimp to act just like Photoshop, he worked on tweaks for Gimp which includes: keyboard shortcuts, icons, look and dialogs. It is also in active development, so if you encounter any problem then report to creator.
