I´m trying to install GIMP 2.9 on elementaryOS (debian based), but it´s being
impossible. I´m sure i´m using the correct ppa's, but every time I try to

Otherwise, I'd suggest you ask the ppa maintainer. :-)
Also, in case Pelayo isn't aware, 2.9 is the current development
version, which will eventually become 2.10 when ready. Some features may
not be complete, and it may be less stable. If looking for the latest
features, and willing to live with (and ideally report) any bugs which
may arise, that's great. Otherwise, it may be better to use the more
stable 2.8 series for production use (perhaps that's another reason for
the PPA not offering 2.9?)
Regarding GIMP 2.9, http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ says:
There are no releases of the 2.9 development version yet.
Nightly builds for Windows are available at darkrefraction.com. This is
unstable software, please use it at your own risk.
A detailed list of changes in the development branch is available in git.
