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


GIMP 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 !!
