I am new to the forums so Hi everybody
I have been using the gimp for some years but this problem is new to me. I can access the tools from the menus and through keyboard but the graphical toolbox is not responding. I am at a loss so any advice would be welcome.

One possibility is that it has a "modal" dialog displayed out of sight.

Locate your Gimp profile

If you are reasonably skilled with computers, edit the "sessionrc" file and see if you can recognize your windows setup and if there are any unexpected things (or ports the contents here).

Otherwise, just rename the file (for instance, "sessionrc.disabled" and restart Gimp, which will create a new "sessionrc" one or forget its previous window setup. With some luck you problem is fixed.

If renaming the "sessionrc" file isn't enough, try applying the same to "toolrc" in the samle directory.
