    I seem to have a very new version of gimp, and don't get
    that tool bAR At the top, only a panel at left, where there
    are a lot of things I have no use for - a painting brush, etc
    etc. One of the tools I use most is the crop tool. How do I
    find that?

    I guess what I really would like is to have that top tool
    or menu bar back, where I find those tools.

    Another question, how can I draw a thin straight line on an
    image between two points?

    You can use the paths tool (the nib pen icon in the toolbox or
    Tools->paths in the menu bar).

    1. Select the paths tool.
    2. In the Tool Options panel, make sure that the edit mode is "Design".
    3. You can define a poly-line using a series of left-clicks on the
    canvas. A straight line is just a poly-line with 1 segment.
    4. After you have defined the line, click "Stroke Path" in the Tool
    Options panel.
    5. A dialog will show up to allow you to choose the style options for
    the line.
    6. When done, click "Stroke" in the dialog.

    press shift when you draw and you get a straight line ( RTFM :D )

    Where do I find that nib pen? Here is a screen shot of what
    gimp shows me:

    The "nib pen" icon I was referring to is the one to the left of the
    eyedropper icon in your toolbox. In your screenshot, it's on the 2nd row
    from the top of the toolbox; it's the 3rd icon from the left.

    I don't use GIMP on Ubuntu. I don't know how to make the menu bar show
    if it's not showing. Sorry.
