Chapter 17. Digital Art with the GIMP > Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your GIMP

Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your GIMP

Click on the application starter (the big K), scroll up to the Graphics submenu, and click on the GIMP. You can also use your program quick launch by pressing <Alt+F2> and entering gimp into the command field.

If you are starting up the GIMP for the very first time, the GIMP User Installation dialog will appear (Figure 17-1). You'll be asked a number of questions regarding the location of your personal GIMP directory (defaults to a directory called .gimp-version.no under your personal home directory), how much memory you wish to allocate for the GIMP to do its work, and so on. For the most part, you can just accept the defaults by clicking Continue through the various screens.
