Managing Your Brushes in GIMP by Kethaera Managing Your Brushes in GIMP by Kethaera
NOTICE: This has not been working in the last few versions of GIMP I tried it with. I'm not sure what's changed or why, but I'll leave this up here in case anyone else wants to try to figure out to make it work, and leave me a comment explaining what to do. I no longer use GIMP (I was given Photoshop as a gift) to explore it further myself.

Links:
Brush Manager Plug-in
GIMP-Python install package (Thank you, thank you, thank you for this package!)
Background
GIMP Logo from commons.wikimedia.org

Permissions:
You may download, display, upload, share, redistribute, and otherwise use the heck out of this tutorial, but please do not alter it in any way, remove my copyright signature, or claim it as your own. I would greatly appreciate a link back here if you do share it on another website, but it is not required. (Hey, you never know, I may link you back!)

Edit: ~PhotoComix has pointed out a plug-in which expands the Brush Manager to include palettes, patterns, gradients, and scripts. The readme included with this plug-in, GURM (Gimp Unified Resource Manager) is fairly clear, so an additional tutorial by me is not really necessary. You can find GURM here [link] (edit Aug 14, 2009: fixed link) . Thanks again, ~PhotoComix for pointing this out to me!

I'm not sure if anyone still monitors this board - but I'm trying to get this working and I have a question.

Check: Install went well, gimp loads faster
Check: The brushes i have in my 'Active_dir' only show up in brush panel when gimp starts:
Check: The 'Brush Manager' option shows up under "tools" (I did move it)
Check: The folders I made in the 'Install_dir' show up in the 'Brush Manager' window
BROKE: When I click on any of the folders in the brush manager window it doesn't change anything, no brushes from those folders/collections show up in the brush pain

What have I done wrong?

I apologize, I haven't been active here in a while. The last few versions of GIMP I tried this with, it no longer worked. I'm not sure what changed or why. I no longer use GIMP to really figure it out.

Thanks to your reminder, I'll put a notice about this in the artist's notes. I'm sorry again for your trouble.

I'm not sure I did it right, but I think I found a fix.

You have to have a folder called "default" in the active_dir folder. It doesn't have to have anything in it, but if it's not there then all the other brushes from Activ_dir will not show up either.
