How to install brushes
Posted 24 September 2005 - 03:14 PM
a thread to link to when someone asks
"How?" and "Where?"
Edit: As of 8/9/07 I personally prefer to use the gimps user directory to install custom content, find that folder here. "C:\Documents and Settings\Sean-Michael\.gimp-2.2\brushes"
Key Words = Gimp Brushes, Installing,
Where do I put brushes,
How do I install brushes.

I am not sure what the cmd line syntax would be(probably $ cd /user/xxxx/.gimp-2.2/brushes) but the . in front of the .gimp-2.2 makes it a hidden folder. You can most likley enable the /user/xxxx/ folder to display your hidden files from the folder view window(in windows xp it is under: Tools>Folder Options>View)....I do not use mac so I can not be any more specific then that, sorry........
Thats right it's a Fencepost original!!! ha ha and it's all mine..

- in this directory you wrote (for whole system)
- in your private user directory ( this is the hidden directory .gimp in your /home/user-derectory )
when I want to place some brushes to my user directory, I do not need to do it as root.
I simply copy them from command-line: cp brush.gbr ~/.gimp-2.2/brushes/
and that is all. Any time I can remove them from command line or by clicking.
I use Linux (Fedora Core 4). On Mac it should be similar. ( I suppose...)

it is great idea to make some very important directories unvisible (like .gimp-2.0/ in personal home directory),
because nobody can make any click-mistake by accident and per example delete them or move somewhere.
Do NOT remove this dot on the beginning (*) - when you do it , gimp will not find it and will not work and will make 'first-run' and produce new hidden directory.
When you want to see all your hidden directories - change some preferences in your desktop environment or file-browser settings ( I am fast sure,
there is in Mac such option to make the hidden directories visible).
(*) this dot is part of name,
removing dot = changing name of directory
