Package: gimp
Version: 2.10.18-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?
I have a PNG file that I'm trying to apply a blur gradiant to (either radial or square). Getting the tool options
is a hit or miss affair. Instead of the tool options displaying when I select the tool, I have to double-click on 
the tool after selecting it. And even then I may not get the tool options.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?
Double-clicking on the selected tool sometimes works.

   * What was the outcome of this action?
Even when I get the tool options, the options don't always work. For example, I can select a radial or square gradiant
but I still only get a linear gradiant.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
I want to get the radial gradiant dialog when I select radial gradiant, etc.. I need a centre and radius, not start
and end points.
