Gimp 2.8.8 display problems with Ubuntu 12.04 - bug
I'm trying to use gimp 2.8.8 with ubuntu 12.04 but each time I open an image file the bottom of the screen gets pushed below the fold and is not accessible. Furthermore when I switch between gimp and firefox the firefox tabs remain and it makes it look like Gimp is running in a tab.

you can see it here.

How can I revert back to gimp 2.8?

IMHO, that is one dire setup. 'buntu + untity could be the problem,

but first;
You have the toolbox duplicated. The left side toolbox is sized to one icon wide and is longer than the monitor display. I think that is most of your problem.

Then the dialogs docks layers etc / brushes etc are floating.

It is just a mess. Make sure you have show 'hidden folders' enabled in your file browser

Go to your home folder ~/.gimp-2.8 rename it to ./gimp-2.8bak just incase you have any brushes/fonts/.. that you need to keep.

Start gimp up again, that gets you to a 3 window display. Go to Gimp menu Windows and tick on 'single window mode'.

You should get you back to normality. Now you can resize the single gimp window to fit your monitor.

Switching between Firefox and Gimp, why not use each in separate desktops.
