how to make brush strokes along a path at a specified interval?
I'm making a spaceship texture and I got rivets, bolts, nuts, etc. brushes from here http://arkyrra.deviantart.com/art/Arc-s-...-63621015. Is it possible to "stamp" these brushes at regular intervals across a straight line? Instead of manually pressing them down one by one?

You can define a spacing bigger than 200% by entering the number directly (type over the display number) instead of using the slider.

To draw/Paint a straight line with the paint brush: click on origin, move to destination, depress the shift key (a control line appears), adjust destination if needed by moving the pointer, and click. With the pepper brush at 500%:

Thanks

@ Darkreach, If you want "along a path" as the subject title, you could try this plug-in, might be useful for the sort of artwork you do.

Follow-path
http://registry.gimp.org/node/28647 and
http://www.arakne.es/en/dessign/gimp-plu...h-updated/
2 files in the zip both go in ./gimp-2.8/plug-ins

Takes a little experimenting with, the main thing is have your image as a layer, does not have to be visible and make sure when on the plug-in dialog, you have that layer selected. (otherwise big error message)

In this screen shot http://i.imgur.com/Mi3MmmX.jpg the top shows the tiny pasted in layer (a rivet)
and the bottom where to find the plug-in - right click in the paths dialog.

and in this pair, http://i.imgur.com/d7lDWmX.jpg the follow-path dialogue. Scaling might be useful in some circumstances to add perspective.
Depending on settings you can end up with lots of layers, but they are in a layer group or you can select to flatten them.
