Cannot use the new cs6 blur filters with my Mac running Mountain Lion since it does not display the circle (or wheel) or lines of the user interface

Which GPU?
Which model computer?

What you're describing is a problem with the video card driver (which comes with the OS).

Chris, I am using an iMac, 2,66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 Mo.
You should know that I used the blur filters of CS6 Beta with that machine under MAC 0S X 10.7 (Lion) without any problems.
I upgraded my system to CS6 and Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and am having the problem I reported. Could be a problem with the video card driver but could also be an incompatibility problem between CS6 and Mountain Lion. Is the problem with Apple or Adobe?
Thank you for your help

The incompatibility would be a bug in the video card drivers that came with 10.8. We'll see if we can reproduce the problem.

Michel,

Waiting for some help from Apple or Adobe technical team without any success, I did the following which solved my problem:

(1) uninstalled CS6 (including its preferences lists) using the uninstaller included in CS6'package, (2) re-installed Mountain Lion, and (3) re-installed CS6.

Since then the "Warning: SUID file .....has been modified and will not be repaired"
message does not appear any more when repairing disk permissions. Was the problem resulting from this modified SUID file? I leave it to the experts

Didn't want to start a new thread but I'm having the exact same problem except with a Windows 7 Intel i5 machine and NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 graphics card. Seems like it was working fine the last time I tried it. Hate to reinstall Photoshop.

There's probably already a topic for Windows, and it'll tell you to update your video card drivers from the GPU maker's website.

After updating graphics card driver and trying everything else I could think of in Preferences I found the answer on the Adobe web site: Simply check the "Show edit pins" in the View menu. Don't know how it got turned off.
