So my computer messed up big time and I had to refresh everything, and when I got gimp back on my computer it was the new version which was 2.8 ... For those of you who have it.. is it confusing for you?
Yeah it seems better quality but I can't get it to work with my tablet at all.. no pressure or anything, plus the controlls to change the size of the brushes are so confusing ...

if anyone knows how to use it, or get the tablet pressure to use work then please post here!

I tried to get 2.6 back and it came up with 2.8 again, also adding some stupid program to my computer aswell which was annoying.

maybe if you clear your browser history and all that you could download the other one?
sometimes if your computer remembers something it will do stuff like that.
i have a dinosaur computer thats probly older then i am right now lmao so this kind of issue isnt new to me.
try clearing all of your history. cookies and all that too.
and after thats all done try and install 2.6 again.
thats the best i have for help.
good luck

For the pen pressure thing, try redownloading your tablet's software disk. Mines done that a few times before, just stopped working.

I have tried that and it didn't work.

But this is alright now, I've got the old GIMP back :)
Thanks though guys.
