I am trying to draw a speedometer with GIMP. Is there a easy way duplicate the line by rotating it about the center?

    It does not matter what the software is the same method of cloning works in all graphics applications ive ever used. Just adding a tag does not make it a gimp question. Your supposed write that in your question body. – joojaa Jun 18 '16 at 18:34

Working with symmetries and the flip tool you can avoid some work.

You can use the multi-replicate script to copy-rotate your element as many times as necessary.

You can use the dial-marks script to create the dual marks directly (as paths, then Select>From path and bucket-fill. See discussion here.

Not that this kind of graphic is best done with vector graphics, so Inkscape could be better suited than Gimp.
