Install additional brushes for GIMP on Ubuntu Linux

New to Ubuntu Linux? This computer operating system could be a bit tricky for beginners, but fret not, help is here. Check out this video tutorial on how to install additional brushes for GIMP on Ubuntu Linux.

To install Gimp Paint Studio with Additional Brushes, first we must know where the user directory of Gimp is located. Assuming you have installed version 2.6 is usually found at:

* Windows : C:\Documents and Settings\username\.gimp-2.6
* Mac : /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Gimp
* GNU/Linux : /home/username/.gimp-2.6

Step by step installation: * Install all the GPS brushes: copy the contents of the brushes directory to the folder with the same name in the Gimp directory. * Also copy the entire contents of the tool-options and paste it into the folder tool-options in the program directory. * To have the new palette, copy the file mismuestras.aco.gpl from the palettes folder and paste into the folder with the same name in the directory Gimp. * If you also want to install the configuration of the GPS tools (recommended), you must copy the file toolrc and replace the already existing one (with the same name) in the program directory (you should make a copy of this file in case you later want to restore). * Do the same with the file sesionrc if you want to modify the GPS position and rearrange the windows on the Gimp's screen. You should know that the layout and the interface are highly optimized to work comfortably with a screen resolution of at least 1280 pixels wide. It is also advisable to install this file, but first make a backup copy of the original one, just in case.
