I'm no Mandrake expert by any means, but this error sounds like you are
missing some needed GTK+ files. I suspect MDK 10 only installed the
Gnome files needed to run most programs, but didn't some that Gimp
needed. Just a guess, not certain. I would think when trying to
install, it would give you more details though. What you might try is
to install the rpm from a shell with:
rpm -Uhv gimp-2.0.0-richard.1mdk.i586.rpm"
If there are unmet dependencies or conflicts, they will show there.

libgimpwidget is actually part of the Gimp rpm file. You can find this
out by doing: rpm -q --whatprovides (name of file)
This of course will only work if the file is installed on your system,
otherwise you can view the files in the rpm with programs like Midnight
Commander or Kpackage.
