Though DarwinPorts installs in /opt/local by default, these packages have been built to install in /usr/local

Just run xterm, browse to /usr/local/ and fire up the appropriate program :)

well, make sure you're in the directory for the gimp, then try ./gimp . The ./ shows the command prompt to look in the current directory for he file (yeah, i know it's messed up, but it's how things work...)

By the way, is there anyway to uninstall gimp and gtk?

re-run the package files to uninstall. the option should be there somewhere...

gimp works much better on my 33mhz mac then it does on me 605mhz pc. It loads up way much faster,after a lengthy first boot thing.
