I'm on 10.8.1, I just downloaded you 2.8.2 p3 dmg, installed it on Applications, and when I double-click the gimp icon, it appears on the dock for a couple of seconds, and then quits without any warning, nor error dialog, nor nothing.
Given that I wished to have some error output, and that the log console didn't say anything interesting, I launched Gimp from the Terminal (cd-ing to /Applications/Gimp.app/Contents/MacOS/) , and this is what I get (my locale is Spain, that's why some messages are in Spanish)
No se puede lanzar («spawn») un mensaje al bus sin un ID de máquina: No se puede cargar /var/lib/dbus/machine-id o /etc/machine-id: Falló al abrir el archivo «/var/lib/dbus/machine-id»: No such file or directory

asiga, It maybe the different language version issue, but I have installed 2.8.2p3 (Eng version) with 10.8.1 and it works fine. Could Simone help your problem?

p3 crashed if there was no config directory or if you launched it for the very first time. Updating from any prior version did not trigger the bug. Sorry.
The most recent version is now p4 and is already online, so please update.
I've installed 2.8.2p3 on a 2011 MBP running 10.7.4 and it does this as well. Quits immediately upon launch. Reinstalls don't change this. Just came across a fix advice to delete all traces of p3 install p2 first and then install p3 over it. Will try that.
Ah, I can see Lisanet posted this info. Very good! Off to get p4 : ) Thank you!
Same results for me with p4. Here's a report:

Thanks a lot, Simone, yes, p4 works fine on my machine.
Regarding the crash reported by rboy505, I believe this build is for Mountain Lion only, so it could explain that, because you said you're running 10.7.4 (Lion).
asiga, I see that I misread the download page and need p1. Thanks.
