I'm trying to use GIMP on Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick), installed using the
regular packages. It seems to work fine apart from one problem: when I
make a selection with e.g. the rectangle selection tool, there's no
visible feedback of how big the selection is, only the cursor is visible
(couldn't take a screenshot while the mouse button was clicked, but
tried to show it at http://bildr.no/image/872092.jpeg ).
If I try to resize a rectangle, the inside purple line moves, while the
outside purple line stays where it was (instead of showing how big the
new rectangle will become when I release the mouse button).
Also, possibly related, there are sometimes purple artifacts from old
Anyone know if this is a bug or if I've just managed to flip some
