Every so often, I wipe the dust off of my linux laptop and try to solve the myriad problems that pop up when simply trying to use it.

Right now there is a problem in gimp where if I make a selection, the animated dashed lines don't appear around a selection. Is it possible there is some silly option somewhere that turns this on and off?

Why not just ask the question? :)

Funny thing, when I started gimp up just now "show selection" was on all of a sudden. I did confirm that the option acted as expected.
