select all in that layer and the filters should reappear. also make sure youre not trying to filter the "background" layer.

Perhaps you are in the wrong color mode. For Filters, you should use RGB.

make sure You don't work in another layer . I think you should hide another layer that you don't work. and In some mode you can't use some filter I suggest to use mode RGB to work.

Make sure that 'Preserve transparency' checkbox in layer window is unchecked

Just make a copy of your background layer (that's what we're talking about isn't it ?) and remove the original. You'll see that in the copy everything is possible again....

hi radar,
first of all u need to change the mode to RGB and then, on the layer menu which is small box on the side, choose the layer u want to work,it should be highlighted in blue.
No go ahead and apply the filter, it should work.
its as simple as that.

It seems that you tried to apply a filter as soon as you'd created the Layer 1. The default background is usually transparent. To see the transparance just 'uncheck' the eye in other layer(s) (background). I suggest before you apply any filter in a layer beside background, make a selection to area you want to filter, fill (bucket) it with a neutral color (black or white), then you can apply you filter.
