[ lots more info about where to view your GIMP patterns,
but not on how to import these particular patterns. ]
The problem in this case may be that a lot of those patterns on
aren't GIMP compatible. For instance, I tried the "animal prints" one,
and although it supposedly includes 18 patterns, I got a zip file
that expanded to just one file, SS-animalprints-patterns.pat.
If I put that file in ~/.gimp-2.6/patterns/ it's ignored, and if I
try to open the file in GIMP I get "GIMP pattern plug-in could
not open image". I get the same for the brick textures pattern.
Has GIMP's support of PS patterns changed? The animal print page
says it should be compatible with GIMP 2.2.6+.
