On trying to save a custom brush in gimp I got the following message :


Saving '/usr/share/gimp/2.0/brushes/brush.gih' failed:

Could not open '/usr/share/gimp/2.0/brushes/brush.gih' for writing: Permission denied.

Although I have successfully done this in the past ,for some reason it is now preventing me from saving them in the 'brushes' folder. Incidentally although the brushes I previously produced do NOT appear in this folder (despite having show all files ticked) they do appear in the gimp dialogue and I can use them.

Im using uberstudent (Linux)

I've checked gimp's 'preferences' to see if I have inadvertantly blocked access but cant see anything relevant..Any Ideas ??
Im an absolute beginner so please be gentle !!
Thanks Offnuts thats solved the problem, I'll have to learn to make accurate notes in future !!
