Tools Not Working after install.
Hi every one, i have just installed GIMP 2.8 on to my computer running UBUNTU 12.04, everything seemed to go ok with it opening up, but when i tried to select a tool, the tool icons go through the motions of selection, but non of the tools will work. Does anyone have any idea what the problems is?

Thanks for the reply ofnuts, but everything is now working, i dont understand why, but it did. After i installed GIMP, the tools were not working, so i rebooted the computer, but the tools were still not working. I then shut down the puter, went back to it a few hours later, booted up and this time all the tools were working. STRANGE?

Thanks again for taking the time to reply.

Gimp has a tendency to devour a lot of ram,if eyah using 2 gb ram on eyah rig,eyah prone to get this laggy feeling while working with large images,brushes,etc, Smile , Vj-
