Gimp is available from the ubuntu repos already, so you don't need any ppa.

If you execute apt download gimp it will download a deb file of gimp to the folder where you have terminal open (usually /home).

I recommend also to delete that ppa if you don't need it. Adding ppas is a security risk to your system. You can do so with sudo add-apt-repository --delete ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp


If you need a newer version of gimp, for example 2.10, you can download it from here. That's the official site of the gimp organization. You need to download gimp-2.10.0.tar.bz2 .

Since it's a compressed package and you probably don't want to install it from source I'm going to explain an alternative way of doing it. With this you are going to convert that file to a .deb file and then you can install it using apt while still receiving updates if a more recent version of gimp is available on the ubuntu repos.

First you need to install alien with sudo apt install alien. Now you go to the folder where you've downloaded that gimp*.tar.bz2 package and you press right click > open on terminal. Execute sudo alien -d gimp*, that's going to create a .deb file, may take some minutes to complete.

Now that you have a .deb file you can install it with sudo apt install -f ./gimp*.deb. When it's finished installing you can delete the .deb package with sudo rm gimp*.deb

With this you should have the lastest stable gimp version. This procedure can also be applied to any other app that comes in a .tar.bz or similar package.
