    Gimp not working

    I have 2 problems with Gimp under 12.04.

    First, frequently just after saving a image, it folds.

    Second, whenever I use a tool, the image editing window becomes deselected, and takes with it the 'show on mouseover' menubar at the top of the screen. To get the menubar back, I have to click in the top of the image editing window.

    Previous editions of Gimp did not have this tiresome behavior.
    I just want to run modern apps under Mac O/S 9 on a PC. But I can't. So here I am.

    Re: gimp keeps messing up

    Maybe you should try reinstall it! PM me if it has done this from the time you installed it.

    Re: Gimp not working

    yeah i also have had the tiresome behaviour of the top panel menu (12.04 clean install ) losing focus when using any of the option like color, tools etc and the only way of gaining focus is to give focus to the image i was working on, this is perhaps an oversight of the G.I.M.P devs . it could be that gnome3 hasnt thought about multiple floating windows, where there aren't so many ubuntu apps that have this behaviour, so the question i would ask is where to make a bug report gnome or GIMP? thanks

    Re: Gimp not working

    I don't understand your folding problem, but to keep the image window in focus right-click on the image widow title bar, and select always on top. Gimp has a weird way of defaulting to another dock, this method seems to work for me.

    Re: Gimp not working

    the above will work also found a permanent fix which i have just tested found here >>> http://voices.yahoo.com/ubuntu-hidin...x-3449370.html

    also read that GIMP 2.8 will be a single window app so this won't be a problem for long. can the original poster mark the post as solved if this solves their problem, ( also unsure of the folding problem i think the op maybe means crashing on image save tho ? ) thanks

    GIMP 2.8 single window mode is optional.
    It's in Ubuntu 12.10.
    You can switch between the old style and the single window style, if so desired.

    Oh, duh. Yes, 'always on top' might fix that. Thanks!

    Actually, 'Always on top' did NOT fix the behavior.

    Re: Gimp not working

    just wondering if you have tried Shotwell that seems to have
    replaced GIMP in 12.04???

    are there features lacking in Shotwell that require you to
    use GIMP???
