Unhappy Gimp 2.8.4 extremely slow with transformations tools


I didn't use Gimp too much since last update, but now I'm using it I found something really annoying. When I rotate or scale a layer It is extremely slow.

I tried to remove completely Gimp and install it again, tried with different users, tried in KDE and XFCE, but nothing solves the problem.

Can anyone confirm I am not the only one with this problem?. To reproduce it just create a new image, create a new layer and try to scale the new layer, If you zoom in it gets even slower.

I am using 32bit -current version and NVIDIA proprietary drivers.

Thanks in advance.

no it is fast for me
Gimp uses the CPU and not the GPU
how many cores is your install using

Gimp2.8
my 4 core( i5 cpu) 64 bit os rotates a 16384x8192 grayscale image by 15 Deg in 90 seconds

Hi, my CPU is Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4600 @ 2.40GHz. With previous versions of Gimp I didn't have problems.

Right now I tried to downgrade to 2.8.2 but It still having problems. Any suggestion?

Anyway I will keep looking for a solution and If I find where is the problem I will post.

Thanks for the answer .

Try reinstalling your Nvidia drivers ..

I also had some funky problems after current update and reinstalling sorted all my problems ..\

I usually don't reinstall when I have a problem, but It seems I have installed some unofficial packages and there was something wrong in my installation, so a fresh install solved all problems .

well gimp now depends on GEGL and BABEL
so if those( or their dependencies) got switched to a slightly different version ? it might have some issues
