Gimp tools don't work, has anyone solved this
I have been using GIMP for several years, but recently got a new computer and installed the latest GIMP software. Unfortunately, none of the tools work.
I have looked online to see if anyone has come up with a solution to this yet, but it seems that none of the sites offering help, can help.
I am not alone with the problem, it seems that there are a lot of others out there also getting very frustrated.
So far I have tried all the obvious stuff, (resetting tools, making sure I'm in the right layer etc.) but this is not the issue. It just plain dont work! And yes, I have uninstalled, and re-installed it, to no avail.
Surely there is a solution to this. I have pictures ready to edit and put up for sale, but I'm not getting anything done right now. This is my favorite editing program, and I'm really bummed that I cant use it.
Please dont ask me to send a screen shot, it wont show anything other than a picture.

Well, I don't know what he would have said, but I also cannot get the grid to work, and I've turned it on in multiple locations now.

I'm running Gimp 2.6.12 on Ubuntu 12.04.

I have gone to File-Edit Preferences and turned it on. Twice... one check top, one bottom.

I went to configure images-grid and turned them on. Then I turned colors to blue and red in case I was missing a guide in white.

So... I'm lost. How do you turn on the stinking grid?
