I can't seem to get rid of the red X ( update error ) on my machine. I do know when the error started - trying to update Gimp from 2,6 to 2,8. I used the PPA route, but it still only shows 2.7 in the repositories. Gimp works fine, but is apparently causing an error from what I downloaded.

Here is the error message ~~~

I looked in sources.list, and deleted a couple of things I didn't recognize, but the error remains. Here's a look at it ~~~

Any idea what I have done wrong?

Read the comments in the link below. Looks like you may be trying the
almost impossible....installing Gimp2.8 in Mint 11. According to the comments, especially
the last 3 or 4 on the second page, Gimp 2.8 installs easily in Mint 13. Same for Ubuntu 12.04.

Thank you buddy215, I see what you mean now. I think I'll just leave well enough alone for now while everything is working. :wink:
