Install Flat and Photoshop themes for GIMP (version 2.8/2.9) in Ubuntu/Linux Mint/any Linux distribution

1: GIMP Flat themes

Flat GIMP themes were designed to make GIMP modern image editor like Photoshop. Many people don't like GIMP default icon theme/look and want to change it with something else, so here comes 8 variants which includes: dark, light, darker and also variants with small fonts. Using these themes you can make Gimp experience better and eye catching. Flat themes are in active development, so if you encounter any bug or problem with themes then you can report to creator. I uploaded these themes to my ubuntuone account, so you can easily pull from there using commands.

2: Gimp as Photoshop

Some people are get use to Photoshop and it is bit difficult for them to use Gimp because Gimp shortcuts, icons and look is different from Photoshop. 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.
