You know, I'm gonna try not to come off sounding like a bitch, but 
stop acting like a child. I see no point to this email other than 
trying to "get back" at Peter who IS trying to help you. There is 
ALOT more to Linux than the Gnome/KDE menu you use to launch Gimp.
If you are not familiar with a command line, then you do need to 
sit down and read some documentation, as Peter has said. It isn't 
a personal attack on you. It's more an attempt to keep the mailing 
lists from being overrun with questions that have already been answered 
countless times before. Go to the website that Foo recommended (www.
linuxdoc.org) and peruse their wealth of documentation. Look for 
a newbie's guide to Linux and read it. These questions are coming 
off as screaming green newbie. There's a saying in the Unix world,
RTFM... it's time you go practice it. 

Sorry if this seems harsh, but sometimes in life you need to get 
out in the world and do things for yourself instead of relying on
