how to fill...

I have area(the whole layer) that I have filled with semi-transparent gradient, so now, I select it - (layer->alpha to selection) and trying to fill with ordinary non-transparent color, but I get the same area with the same semi-transparent gradient, the only thing that I changed - the main color of gradient:(

You're selecting only the alpha channel. On that layer, "Select All", then fill.

The Alpha Channel is a greyscale channel that only contains information about the transparency of the pixels in the layer. When you select by alpha channel, you're only selecting the part of the image with non-zero 'opaqueness'.

I am not shure about what you actually want to achieve, but it sounds like you could make use of the "behind" paint mode (change, on the tool options, the paint mode from "normal" to "behind". )
