I think the error message explains it all. You used a dev-version of
GIMP to create XCF files, right? So it seems like the dev version of
GIMP saves in a newer version (3.0) of the XCF file format than the
older and stable GIMP version does.
So you obviously need the dev version (2.7.2) of GIMP to open the
I can think of two ways to solve this:
Either you install gimp-dev 2.7.2 on your Ubuntu 10.04 computer, or you
convert the XCF 3.0 files to the XCF format that the older GIMP
If the 2.7.2 dev version is not in the Ubuntu 10.04 repositories I guess
you need to find something to download and install manually somehow or,
in worst case, find the source and build it yourself.
