    Why is the layers palette in GIMP not showing any info for me?

    I add layers and they don't show up and the controls at the bottom of the layers palette (add layer, bin, etc) are all blanked out and i can't select them. It's impossible to do anything with layers in GIMP as it is at the moment and i need to get it sorted. I have tried closing down the layers tab, restarting GIMP and then adding the tab again but i get the same result, a layers palette that won't respond or show any layers that i do add. Any help appreciated. Thanks

    I also tried reinstalling it. Everything is still just frozen in the layers palette. The rest of the program is working flawlessly but without layers i can't do much. Even the Mode and Opacity setting cannot be used.

    I had the same problem. I dragged the layers dialogue outside the paths, channels, layers, undo window so it became its own seperate window and this solved the problem. I'm using Win7 so I don't know if this will work in Ubuntu. I also wanted to keep layers as a dialogue in that main window though so I clicked the arrow next to the word "Layers" and in the dropdown box I unchecked "Auto follow active image", exited, then re-checked it. This also solved the problem for me.
