FIXED - brush opacity slider location in 2.8-FIXED
Hi all,

EDIT: FIXED - I completely reinstalled GIMP 2.8 and put Andrew's Script (found here: into "C/USER/ADMIN/GIMP 2.8/SCRIPTS" (I'm stuck with Windows Vista Home Premium) running on an Acer laptop. Now the "Opacity" and "Brush Size" sliders have shown up where they're supposed to have been on the first install. I hope this helps anyone having a similar problem.
GIMP rules... and so does Blender - Anybody got a 3d printer we can have some fun with? END EDIT.

p.s. My middle mouse wheel used to control brush size - I recently reinstalled my updated Logitech mouse drivers and I'll bet if I go to "Setpoint" in my system tray, I'll be able to configure the mouse wheel from there. That's where I had to go in order to fix the tilt control in Google Earth after I updated the mouse drivers.

Sorry if this has been answered already... I just installed GIMP 2.8, with Andrew's GIMP Script FU and now I can't find the brush opacity slider anywhere (EDIT: Or the brush/eraser/pencil etc SIZE slider - there also appears to be no way to set my middle mouse wheel as the controller for the brush size). I've used GIMP for awhile and I know how to move around but I'm not very good with it. Can someone help please? I'll wait to hear from anyone before I do a re-install of the whole application.

RE: brush opacity slider location in 2.8
I've not heard of Andrew's Script FU but unless it's done something to change the way Gimp is set up then your brush opacity slider should be in the same place as in the screen shot below. Make sure the brush tool is selected so that the tool options show up.
