All my gimp patterns are carpet

Can anyone tell me how to fix my gimp patterns.. I have various patterns but they all have a carpet texture when I try to use them (they look correct in the little window but when I choose one to fill an area, they all have the same texture, the only thing that changes are the colors). I tried resetting everything to default and still all the pattern looks like freaking carpet! Thank you so much..

They look correct in the little window,

well that's a good start -so what do you get if you have the pattern dialog tag

open and right click any pattern > open pattern as image < if the image is of carpet that's not good and there is a way to sort that out What I would do is with that problem 'carpet pattern look' being in all my patterns is -remove that one or more carpet patterns in your - /home/YOURNAME/.config/GIMP/2.10/patterns presuming you are on Linux Don't know much about Widows its roaming or something (need Windows assist here)

(keep the original carpet pattern in a external HD (with all the other personal files on Ext HD)
now The offending carpet pattern is not in Gimp Now it removed completely from Gimp restart the Gimp and let see what happens, I do hope that this helps

How are you filling? Using the bucket fill tool, the tool options should look like screenshot 01: Make sure Pattern Fill is selected.

There is another way to fill with a pattern. Click-n-Drag from the Patterns dock into the canvas. screenshot 02. Not always the same as bucket fill (depending on bucket fill tool options)

Other thoughts. What size are these patterns? It gives the size in pixels next to the name in the pattern dock.

Then what size is the image? It might be that the pattern is tiny, image is large, filled area looks flat.
