GIMP wont save
So for some reason my GIMP doesnt open the save box. I re-installed but still nothing. Anyone have any idea why?

RE: GIMP wont save
Usually what is really happening is that it opens it but outside of your visible screen area.

Locate your Gimp profile, and either erase the "sessionrc" file you'll find there, or if you feel a bit more adventurous, load it in an editor, locate the lines that look like
Code:
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-file-save-dialog"
    (position 254 153)
    (size 1001 719))
and fix them (if you miss you can still erase the file).

PS: Un-installing Gimp doesn't remove you Gimp profile, so the re-installed version uses the existing profile from the previous install. This is why un-install/re-install will usually not cure these problems.
