gimp-2.2 if you have them installed in parallel

'apropos gimp' might help if the manpages are installed.
For me, it's 'gimp-2.2', but I'm on slackware and you could be using a different version of the gimp.
Does your terminal/shell support tab completion? If it does, try
'gimp<TAB><TAB>' and see if it gives you the possible completions...

cd /usr/bin
ls -CF | less

and look for gimp.....

I just emerged gimp last night with no options on a new box and it's in /usr/bin/gimp-2.2 (Gentoo stable tree x86)

i tried slack 10 and 10.1 but the only beef i had with it was no matter how much i compiled different drivers i couldnt get my internet to work... alas i have found a good distro at last... albeit the install was a b*tch
