I have the big pdf Gimp User's Manual. I carefully followed the instructions to make a new brush. On reloading, I get two messages. One says that the brush can't be loaded. The other says that the brush is in an unknown format. Perhaps I misunderstood the line that says, "Move xxx.gbr to your.gimp/brushes directory". I did this manually, as Gimp doesn't offer me a path to a brushes directory. I put the new brush in the same directory as the real brushes.
I wonder if perhaps my setup isn't right. Inside Gimp I have four subdirectories called "bin," "etc", "lib", and "share". I had to drill down to find the brushes directory inside "share". Share also contains a subdirectory with my name on it, and which contains further subdirectories, all empty, with the same names as the ones in share, plus a few extras. I tried dragging the new brush into the brushes directory there, but I got the same error message. Please, what am I doing wrong? I'm flummoxed! _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
