Units menu missing
According to a few tutorials I have read, the Units Menu should appear on the bottom line, alongside the Status and the Pointer Coordinates and Zoom Button. None of these items appear, and I have searched far and wide, but can't find out where to enable them. The only thing that appears on that line is "Background (2.7 MB)".

Directions, please?

GIMP 2.6.8 on Mandriva 2010.2 x86_64.

Thanks,
JimR

RE: Units menu missing
Thats the staus bar. Always difficult to diagnose a different OS but FWIW first check (sounds like you already did this)
Edit -> Preferences -> Image Windows then Appearance for "Show statusbar". Then check 'Title & Status' for settings.

Closest I can get in Gimp 2.6.11 (PCLOS) is nothing in the status bar.

Sorry, No luck on this tip. I'm near upgrading to Mandriva 2011, maybe it's fixed there.
