Problems with Mandrake 9.0

Hi all,

Has anybody else experienced problems when trying to change the color of individual pixels when creating or editing a graphic? When I try to change the color of individual pixels using the pencil ( with the smallest *point*) the pixel may or may not actually change; sometimes, actually quite often, the pixels are changed in a seemingly random order, substituting the surrounding pixels instead of the one that I clicked on (if I drag the pencil, then blocks of pixels are randomly changed).
This also happens when using the eraser tool. It is not an actual problem with The Gimp because if I minimise, then restore the graphic's window then the actual changes made are seen rather than the *apparent* changes as seen when working on the graphic. It would seem then that the problem is a rendering one rather than a bug in The Gimp itself.
I have the exact same problem on my laptop (also with Mandrake 9.0) - so it's not a problem with the video card - but never experienced it before using Mandrake 8.2 on either computer.

Maybe I could install The Gimp from source in a directory of it's own away from Mandrake's installation and therefore avoiding the rendering issues - would this solve the problem? If so how do I do it and satisfy all the dependency requirements?

cheers,

Nigel Ridley.

Problems with Mandrake 9.0

I'm having *exactly* the same problem when using the paint tool or the clone tool. I posted this problem recently, but your description was more accurate. And, yes, it started happening with Mandrake 9.0.

My husband, the geek in the family, says it's probably a problem with XFree86, the graphic system, and we have to wait for a fix. It's difficult when trying to edit and graphic and it does what you want but doen't render that way!

Glad you posted this problem.
