Gimp Problem [SOLVED]

Post by Silver Surfer » Mon Feb 19, 2018 5:25 am

Hi Guys,
Got KDE Linuxmint 18.1 installed with GIMP 2.8.16
But Gimp is not working as in M$ Windows.
“Quick mask” Mask hardly visible (Yes I’ve Set my color choice)
“Sample points” not working, (can’t drag down to select a point) Although Sample point dialogue tab created.
Is there a better Gimp install for KDE linux, or am I missing something.

OK Guys,
Solved the problem. Didn't realize you had to hold down CTRL in order to bring down "Sample point" cross hairs
Oh, for a younger brain!
