Ok, well, I removed GIMP because I messed up all the settings and it wasn't working properly, and when I try to reinstall it says:

gimp:
Depends: libgimp2.0 (>=2.6.10) but 2.6.7-1ubuntu1.1 is to be installed
Depends: libatk1.0-0 (>=1.29.3) but 1.28.0-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: libc6 (>=2.11) but 2.10.1-0ubuntu17 is to be installed
Depends: libfontconfig1 (>=2.8.0) but 2.6.0-1ubuntu12 is to be installed
Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>=2.23.5) but 2.22.3-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (>=2.20.0) but 2.18.3-1ubuntu2.2 is to be installed

I did:

sudo apt-get remove gimp gimp-data

Sounds like you may have some broken package dependencies. Try fixing them in your package manager..

Yeah, it did say "E: Broken packages" but when I open Synaptic, I put the "Broken" filter on and nothing shows up. I also tried

sudo apt-get install -f
and

sudo apt-get install -f gimp

Also, I installed GIMPShop for now while i try and fix the original GIMP. The thing is, GIMPShop opens up by just typing

gimp
into the terminal...

Yeah, it did say "E: Broken packages" but when I open Synaptic, I put the "Broken" filter on and nothing shows up.Enter gimp in the search box before applying the filter. There is also a selection from the drop-down menu above to fix broken packages.Gimp-shop shares libs Standard Gimp.....that is why you can use the cammand gimp in the terminal. I would completely uninstall both and then reinstall Gimp.

I did:

sudo apt-get remove gimp gimp-data
Should have been simply go into Synaptic and choose to remove Gimp completely and all its config files to insure you remove everything.

Ok, thanks, it's just that I'm used to doing most operations through the terminal.

Also, nothing came up by selecting "Fix broken packages" or by putting "gimp" into the search bar and then adding the filter.

As I said earlier....
I would completely uninstall both and then reinstall Gimp.

udo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq gimp

udo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq gimp


If an installation breaks in the middle of the process and you find that it's no longer possible to install or remove packages, try running these two commands:

# apt-get -f install
# dpkg --configure -a

That didn't work... sudo apt-get -f install did nothing.
And sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq gimp just said

dpkg: warning: ignoring request to remove gimp which isn't installed.

Throw this at it.
sudo dpkg --configure -a
