Can't get new Brushes to work with Linux
Hi, I have no problems installing new brushes when using windows, you simply extract the brushes in the brushes folder of course Smile

I am doing exactly the same thing with my linux machine but I cant seem to get the brushes when i restart Gimp in linux. I even tried extracting the brushes in a couple of other folders within the Gimp/brushes folder. Still they fail to appear ?

Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong. I really would like to stop using windows but i often run into problems with linux Sad

thx,
Mike.

It depends on your linux, this is Dolphin in PCLOS-KDE

It will be there, somewhere, probably in a View menu, from memory Nautilus as in many gnome desktops, use the hot key 'ctrl-h' as a shortcut. Also useful to go into 2 window mode, that is probably in the view menu as well.
