    Exclamation Putting gimp brushes to use!


    K well i have gone as far as making a folder in gimp/2.0/brushes (brushes being the new folder) and now i cant extract the .gbr files to this folder. howcome? Can someone tell me the exact way to extract these files to gimp so they are usable?

    Welcome to the forums!

    I can't speak on the brushes issue, but on the package installation matter, your best bet in Mandriva is to set up URPMI:

    Easy Urpmi

    Otherwise, you can find some software installation instructions for Linux here:

    You don't have to extract anything in that folder.
    You can place your brushes into /home/yourusername/.gimp-2.4/brushes . Of course, if they are zipped, unzip them into that folder, and you will see, when you restart the Gimp, the brushes will appear.

    I can also recommend you to use repositories with EasyUrpmi. Firefox is there. In Mandriva, there are usually precompiled packages for programs with .rpm extensions, which can be downloaded and installed through the Package manager (or rpmdrake from terminal).
    Attention! By default, Mandriva won't keep the downloaded packages after their installation, so if you need them on an other PC it's better to tell us, so we could help you how to do that.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
