I'm pretty much editing JPG files (500x500) for use in MP3 tags. At most I *might* do two layers, but even copying a small part and pasting it over the
I've edited my memory usage to the max it will allow (3GB) and I think I have my undo steps to 10. My computer has 8GB Ram in it, so I don't know why upping that to 3GB would cause any issue. The odd thing is that even GIMP running by itself, or when I've got a few other programs open, gives me the same issue.
I've looked online and some have gave tips to "speed up Gimp" by turning off "Color Management", but that does nothing. I turned off desktop effects and that didn't help. I tried single window mode, mutli window mode. I tried JPG, GIF. I changed the marching ants speed. And I still get the same issue using the rectangle select. I even went into Synaptic and Reinstalled Gimp, same issue.
A side issue I've had is that after I turned off Desktop Effects (and turned them back on) Synaptic/Firefox have reverted to basic square grey drop down menus, where the didn't have them before.
I hope I don't have to reinstalled PCLinux to fix either of these, I did a fresh install when I upgraded my computer back in November.
