Just put the .abr file in your $HOME/.gimp-2.6/brushes. Relaunch gimp
and it might be OK.
Unfortunately, i feel that Gimp is running much slower when such brush
set are loaded. It seems to me that gimp loads them all at launch time.
Is there any caching that would allow to have them available but not
loaded full-res until we need them ?
