Are you sure the "select tool" didn't activate. All the select tool does it change your current tool back to the regular mouse.

I don't understand what you mean by left button panel. Do you mean the menus at the top or maybe you are talking about the right button panel. I once made a typo like that.

Sorry I'm still a noob and this may not be helpful. =(

I think that will work with nobody, because it's only function is selecting nothing more, just press q when you want to activate the selecttool or go to the left panel.

=) I'm glad I solved one of your problems. Here are a list of things that might make them work.

1. Make sure you select an object (Press Q and click on object) before clicking on the tool

2. Try increasing the size of the tool. After doing #1 pressing the "+" or "-" sign a couple of times (3-10 times)
