Re: [Gimp-user] Recurring mouse problem in GIMP 2.8.22

Although you say this only happens in GIMP, I would expect to have seen
many more complaints in the community if it was a GIMP (only) problem. I
would not give up on looking outside GIMP for the issue. It may be a
conflict between GIMP and some other software, running at the same time as
GIMP. eg Assistive technology software. Can you try with everything else

It sounds like a mouse problem, not a GIMP problem.

Clearly it's not a mouse problem if it affects only GIMP and not the
entire system. In that case I suggest you to reset (=delete) the user
config data of GIMP here:

Okay, I've gone there, and I saw a lot of sub-directories, almost all of
them are empty. Some do have something in them: the patterns I've added,
the plug-in I've added and the tool-options.

I've followed the directions given at the above link, restarted GIMP and
the mouse problem, which only happens with GIMP, is still there. It's
making use of the software very difficult. In most instances when I use
the mouse I end up highlighting the thing I want to do with the mouse
and then I hit the ENTER key and it happens. Unfortunately, some
operations just need the mouse to choose what you want to do.

Any suggestions?
