problem with paintbrush
Hello all,
I have just started using Gimp, switching over from Photoshop. I have two problems:
1.The paintbrush and fill tool do not seem to work. I suspect I accidentally changed a setting someplace and this is the result.
2. The cpu usage is at about 1,000,000 by the time Gimp has started. There are pauses and sometimes freezes when I'm working.

Any help is appreciated!

RE: problem with paintbrush
Thanks for your suggestions, I removed the Photoshop Brushes I had added from the brush folder and Gimp opened up right away, no problems with it getting stuck etc.

I checked that nothing was selected, checked I was on the right layer, and still the brush and fill do not work. Actually, the brush DOES work, it is just that it shows up way to the left of where I click it. When I try the Fill there is a little circle with a slash (can't use) that shows up.

I didn't quite understand how to find the Profile and make changes to it. I went to the file/preferences and found the folders. There are two boxes that can be checked, on all of them the top box is checked and the bottom one is not.

Thanks for your help!
