Can't get airbrush, brush, pencil to work on graphic....
Using Debian testing - Gimp 2.6.11 and when I create a graphic I try to use airbrush, brush or pencil and I can't get them onto the graphic. The colour tester does get onto the graphic and works.

for the others the cursor vanishes and only the arrows on the ruler top and side move about. The cursor is behind the graphic? Moves out from under when I move off the graphic

I've googled but can't find a bug or any reference to this behaviour, so thought I would try here. Hope this is the place.

TIA

No such problem but I'm a bit back-level compared to you (Kubuntu 10.04 and Gimp 2.6.8) although my build of 2.7 works OK too.

Change settings in Edit/Prefences->"Image Windows" tab->"Mouse pointer" options to see if things get better?

Are you running X11 (which version) or already testing Wayland?

You are brilliant. That was exactly the thing. In Image Windows, Show brush outline and Show pointer for paint tools was disabled. Why or how is beyond me. I usually never have a need to go into Preferences, but did some time ago, and may have changed it then though, why? I have no idea.

Thank you very much for your help in getting this working again. It's much appreciated.
