Sad Layer Box Missing?
I've downloaded gimp 2.6 recently and everything about it is great besides the fact that I dont have a layer box. I've tried all the tricks that people say, press ctrl + L or go to windows>recently closed docs.... When I tried recently closed docs it says empty.
Heres what it looks like --> http://i50.tinypic.com/x1m43s.jpg

I downloaded it from ---> http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-win...B%20%28...

When i open gimp up at the top of the window it says GNU image manipulation program

Someone please help me Confused Im new at everything that goes with gimp. If someone could help me I would really appreciate it Angel

RE: Layer Box Missing?
I opened the sessionrc in word and it showed a bunch of thing but this was the only thing i saw about "gimp-layer-list". Do I edit something to it, and if I do can i do it and save it through microsoft word?

It shows:

# GIMP sessionrc
#
# This file takes session-specific info (that is info, you want to keep
# between two GIMP sessions). You are not supposed to edit it manually, but
# of course you can do. The sessionrc will be entirely rewritten every time
# you quit GIMP. If this file isn't found, defaults are used.

(session-info "dock" "dock"
(position 2174 18)
(size 210 750)
(open-on-exit)
(aux-info
(show-image-menu "true")
(follow-active-image "true"))
(dock
(book
(current-page 0)
(dockable "gimp-layer-list"
(tab-style icon)
(preview-size 32))
(dockable "gimp-channel-list"

(dockable "gimp-vectors-list"

RE: Layer Box Missing?
When i edit the file it saves as a different file, as a text file. And it still doesnt come up. When you say rename it, could I rename it anything?
