[Gimp-user] How to revert to version 2.6 in Ubuntu

Found a fabulous solution:

Someone has written a Python script to re-set the Save function to save changes
to a file back in its original format! The webpage above gives instructions for
installing (very necessary for a non-programmer), but the python script itself
is here:

My original post may have been crabby, but now I don't need to figure out how to
revert to 2.6! I can keep my repos current and I can resume recommending GIMP to
my hundred-odd students. Of course, this means abiding by (and teaching) the
same caution with raster-editors that has pertained since 1990: protect
originals. Don't re-work images in lossy and comressed formats.
Sadly, your reply affirms my sense of the condescension in the GIMP
community--and I notice that you did not offer any way to revert this interface
design back to match an existing working-method. In the spirit of the
open-source community, I kept looking. I found a solution to the problem. I
share it.
