That's because there is no such thing on a Mac and has not been for a long
All your preferences are kept in your Personal Library/Application
Support/GIMP/2.x. Here x=8 or 9 depending on which version you are using.
You may also have both if you have both version installed.
If you cannot see your Library in Finder, make sure to make it visible.
If you run in this trouble one simple way is to move your GIMP/2.x folder
somewhere else so that you are starting with a "clean slate" so to speak.
If you are not familiar with a system don't provide users with advice till
you become familiar with that system or don't provide advice at all.
