Can't see toolbar icons
Hi.
I'm a teacher in a school in Argentina.
We use Gimp 2.8 running over Debian Stable with XFCE Desktop.
The problem we're having is that toolbar icons are not shown properly. I uploaded a screenshot. Wen toolbar is resized, the part that is impossible to see changes, but it never shows properly. In single window mode, the problem persists.
   
I've tried changing the theme, with no result.
Any ideas will be of help. If it is a bug, Where can I report it?
Thanks in advance.
Juan.

RE: Can't see toolbar icons
If you go to Edit>Preferences>Toolbox>Appearance and add "Show active brush, pattern & gradient" and/or "Show active image", does the problem persist?

Otherwise, to report bugs, http://bugzilla.gnome.org (there is a category for Gimp: "other/GIMP").

RE: Can't see toolbar icons
I think that is more to do with the XFCE DE and "video tearing" (edit: hardware problem) than Gimp.

I have seen similar using a basic HP laptop and a Bodhi linux, never did get the installation working very well.

The "tearing" would sometimes correct if the window was moved forcing the display to update, but not a real solution.

I did that, and nothing changes... I will try updating XFCE. If it doesn't work, I will report the bug. Thanks for your help.

I updated XFCE, and installed LXDE (a different Desktop Environment), and the problem persists. I'll report the bug.

Any other ideas?

RE: Can't see toolbar icons
By all means report it as a bug but I still think it is a problem with:
The DE - these minimal DE's LXDE, XFCE, E17 do have hardware compatibilty issues.
Often Intel graphics adapters have issues.

See:

Maybe look at your xorg setup, although tweaking this in XFCE is a pita as it is very minimal.
I have a "AntiX" using Space-IceWM (about as minimal as you wish. It is a Virtual Machine: 1 GB memory 64 MB video) - based on Debian testing - with Gimp 2.8.10 and that works fine.
