Description tenfingers 2000-01-06 18:17:06 UTC
I'm a new linux user and was reading the gimp manual, experimenting with
gimp as I read.  I soon ran into a problem.  Gimp requires Alt+click to
select a mask in the layers dialog.

At the time I didn't know if the bug was in gimp or if one of the
windowing systems (xfree86, enlightenment, gnome) was eating the input.
Eventually I found the configuration file for enlightenment and was able
to remove the Alt+click binding that was tied to moving a window.

Since enlightenment is the default WM for redhat and since gimp is
installed by default (its on the menu) shouldn't they work together by
