I'm brand new to Gimp. I have installed Gimp 2.8.0p1 and XQuartz-2-1.7.0. Running OS 10.6.7 on a last of the core 2 duo 15" MacBook Pro, (MacBookPro5,3; Intel Core 2 Duo).
When I double click the Gimp application in opens followed by X11 both odf which which simply sit in the finder. There are no actions which can be performed, no windows, no file>open menu, no useful menus. The only Gimp menu is the Gimp application menu itself, (HIde Gimp, Hide Others, Show All and Quit).
I'm totally lost.
Sorry for such an amateurish question but, although I am an experienced Mac user, I am lost in Gimp. I am expecting some kind of gui. Is Gimp a command line only app? I don't think so.
Would sure appreciate a kick start.
Thank you -- Jack
