No "use gradient" checkbox

I'm using Windows7 Home Premium. I'm new to GIMP. I was following one of the tutorials to get used to GIMP and I don't have a check box by the gradient box so I can "use color from gradient". Here's a link to a screen shot I took. https://picasaweb.google.com/114202365594956578899/DropBox?authkey=Gv1sRgCP_W2vG2g7Pvaw#5742303441265701202 I uninstalled, then reinstalled the program, but that didn't help. Suggestions or work arounds would be appreciated.

The tutorial you used is obsolete. With GIMP 2.8, the color is taken from the gradient if at least one box is checked in the Color row of the mapping matrix for the current paint dynamics. See for example the Random Color paint dynamics.

Depending on what you intend to do, you'll probably have to define a new paint dynamics, using the proper button in the Paint Dynamics dialog.

Thanks, Oliver. Being totally new to GIMP-and loving it so far, I an just following the tutes I've found online so I can learn what is where in GIMP and how it works.
