Hi all! Thanks in advance for your time... I'm new to these forums, and was hoping that someone could help me with major complications I've recently been having with Gimp. They suddenly appeared, I had never had problems with Gimp, and when I fired it up for the first time after a while, Everything seemed to have gone to shit. That was with 2.6.1. I installed 2.8.0, hoping that would fix it, but it only introduced more problems. Sadly, there are numerous things wrong, I'll list them in order of how problematic they are: - Gimp crashes a lot... whenever I try to do something, really. - I can't move the windows. In fact, there's no title bar for any of them. - I can only resize the main view window in the lower right corner. Can't resize anything else. - Whenever the normal cursor should appear, it shows the black x-shaped cursor instead. weird. I had an issue where whenever I tried to edit the preferences, I got an error saying permission was denied to create library/application support/gimprc, even though I have read & write permissions on all of the files in the folder... but when I changed the permissions of "everyone" from read-only to read & write, that issue disappeared. strange, and I think it has something to do with the problems I'm still having. I tried reinstalling gimp and xquartz, to no avail. someone please help me!
