    Howdy,
    I installed Gimp 2.6 on my old Mac G5, OSX 10.5.8, and I don't have any problems opening and using it with X11.
    However, when I try using the commands listed in the user's manual:
    Fire Up the Gimp,
    nothing works on either X11 nor the Mac Terminal, i.e. man gimp, gimp, etc. I get:
    No manual entry for gimp
    -bash: gimp: command not found

    What have I missed?
    Thank you,
    DN

    That must have stemmed from gimp being installed in /Applications/Gimp.app and not in /usr/local/bin (or in /opt/local/bin if MacPorts is used)

    as a workaround you might try fiddling with

    $cd /Applications/Gimp.app/Contents/MacOS/gimp

    Howdy,
    I appreciate the advice.
    yes, the instructions simply said to move the gimp.app to the Applications folder.
    I ran the old periodic weekly command and the find & locate gimp commands worked for a bit; now no joy.
    I'll try the cd to contents thing, but I'm a bit lost as to why the find, locate and what is commands are not working.
