Help! Green circles associated with my cursor
Hi all,

I've just started to use GIMP and there's a path filled with green circles associated with my cursor whereever I move or place my cursor. I'm wondering how I can get rid of the path. Thank you.

Hi, I've attached a screenshot of my problem. That green circles appear when I select brush and eraser tools. Thanks.

RE: Help! Green circles associated with my cursor
Do the green circles appear even if your not clicking anything, just moving the mouse around? (with just the brush & eraser tools)

Have you tested if it happens selecting the other tools?

Version of Gimp #. #. # and
What Operating system do you have and what bit-depth (32-bit / 64-bit) if applicable?

I searched and found someone using ubuntu with a similar problem, here is the thread:
