Unable to use pencil, paintbrush
Other tools seem to work fine.

Example:
Open GIMP
New File, 50x50 px, RGB, 72ppi
Paint Bucket, Lasso, Magic Wand, all work. Pencil, Paintbrush - nothing.

If I open an image, I can select it, duplicate it, color pick, paint bucket and all of the functions in the dropdown menus seem to work, but no drawing or painting.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance ;-)

RE: Unable to use pencil, paintbrush
Well, I finally answered my own question. In the Tool Options, the pencil/brush were selected to "Clipboard", which was blank.

All good. Thanks for the karma....
