Some buttons are not responding
I am using GIMP for a long time, and lately, after upgrading Windows to 8.1, GIMP started behaving strangly..
Right after start, some of the buttons are not responding to mouse clicks. For example, in the file open dialog I cannot select a folder or click ok, and things like that.

I tried to upgrade to GIMP 2.8.10 but it did not help. I suspect it has smething to do with the GTK on windows, but I did not find anything on this.

Anyone got this problem or had any idea how to solve it? I really like to continue using GIMP but currently it's impossible!

Thanks

You might be correct, I'm still on win8 & every once & a while (very rarely) the touchpad scroll won't work & I have to restart the computer, then it works.

I'mstill holding off on upgrading from win8 to 8.1 even though it now says its fully compatible (the advisor, last time it said quickstream wasn't)

^_^ Thanks for bug testing Gimp on win8.1 your helping someone out there.

You can try a few things: (each number is an option, not steps, I recommend trying in this order though)

1. Reset your Gimp Profile (then run Gimp again)
2. Restart your computer if you put it in standby instead
3. Check that the Core pointer in Gimp is set to "screen"
Edit > Input devices
4. Try a different version of Gimp (*see below question)

5. As a last resort only,
after backing up your files, if your computer didn't come with 8.1, you can try to refresh it with the cd back to win8,

Or you can try a different version of Gimp, you didn't say what version you were using before 2.8.10. Which one were you using?

There is an experimental version that might work on http://www.partha.com/
