I have a problem with Gimp 2.8 which I'm running on Linux Mint.  

 

I was working with the burn tool and accidentally dragged the essential dialogue box (left side) offscreen.  I can't figure out how to get it back.  With Corel PSP there is an easy setting where I can reset the program to factory settings and I see that Gimp has a preference option with all kinds of settings, more settings than I understand.  Can I use this?  I watched a video that demonstrated resetting Dockable Dialogues but I don't recognize any that are associated with the Tools > Paint Tools > Dodge/Burn tool.

 

A few years ago I signed into a Gimp forum and posted a question and it took quite a while for a response.  I know the Linux people here at BC are very active and helpful, and as I'm in the middle of a huge project, need a response rapido.

 

Thanks!

I hate to say this, but maybe consider deleting and reinstalling Gimp. In the few minutes it would take you can be up & running again. You could spend a lot of time on this, and as I understand, you are under a time crunch. Just a thought.

Actually, I think I need to reinstall.  I did find online information about this and I'm not getting the results I need.  The settings at the bottom of the left side panel are not visible and the dodge/burn tool seems stuck on the last setting I used.  Actually, I've had a lot of system problems with this installation of Mint, not just with Gimp.  

 

Thanks.
