Gimp in Lubuntu. Top of layers applet is hidden. Weird science!
What can I do to stop Gimp hiding the top of the layers applet. It always appears to be too high on the screen and the window functions are not accessable. I would like to move it or minimise it sometimes.

It has done this to me for a couple of years now, in spite of me running Lubuntu recently in place of Ubuntu.

Any help is thanked in advance. Smile

Cheap brain, that's my problem!

Using scrot for screenshots - you are a hero.

I thought that alt-click-and-drag worked for all linux's and moved a window in and out of a desktop.

That is a Gimp 2.8.x so a single window mode will be available. Nothing wrong with multi-window mode if you set it up. Edit -> Preferences -> Windows Management then untick Save on Exit and click on Save Windows Positions Now at least gets a sensible arrangement.

Could be worse, could be standard Ubuntu Wink

Print Screen doesn't work in Lubuntu, so I learned how to scrot! Hmm. That sounds a little weird doesn't it? Confused

Comes in handy, as an experiment I did a series of webcam shots, using a net-book with the webcam on a stick out of a window.

Code:
while [ 1 ]; do  scrot -q 100  `date +%s`.jpg; sleep 3; done

This took a <number>.jpg screenshot every 3 seconds until ctrl-c was pressed in the terminal.

For one single screenshot, using Gimp's File>Create>Screenshot works quite well...
Good one. That works nicely.
