Gimp: Paintbrush outlines?


Hello!

I started using Gimp today as an alternative for Photoshop 7. I started normally, all is well. But I noticed that I get no outline on my paintbrush tools (and erasers, airbrushes, etc). By outline I mean a transparent-greyish usually circular outline that shows how big the line to be produced is going to be and is just standard stuff.

I had a quick browse through the help section.. wasn't any help...

Any way to get this activated? If not, that's just... shoddy.

Thanks for any help!
