An odd note --
When I open the GIMP, the center window (GNU Image Manipulation Program) starts halfway down the screen, rather than at the top, as do the left and right windows (toolbox and layers). Consequently, I have to adjust all three windows to use the program whenever I open it up.
Does anyone else experience this?
First try this: go to GIMP preferences > Window Management > click the "Reset Saved Widows Positions to Default Values" button.
If that doesnt work, open up GIMP and move the windows to whatever position you like, then go to GIMP preferences > Window Management > and this time press the "Save Window Positions Now" button.
BTW if you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail instead of a PM.
anonymous -- thanks for the tip. This helped me to orient the main(center) window properly on the screen, but the left and right windows are still opening halfway down. I'll keep fooling with these settings and see if I can come up with a solution.
Question, though -- do you experience this when opening the GIMP in #!?
I can confirm that this has been the default behaviour in Intrepid, Linux Mint Felicia and CrunchBang (that I've tested anyway). To adjust the side panels first drag the top window border up into the top half of the screen then aim the mouse at the top of the window border until it turns into an upward arrow with a line above it, then push and drag the window back down to the bottom half of the screen. Then grab the window border as normal and drag it back up. This should allow you to see the bottom of the panel again.
Adjust the size more to your liking and then go to the preferences as described above and choose, 'Save Windows Position Now'.
This should work but is a little confusing to explain. Please ask again if I'm not describing this well enough
