I'm not sure if this is the place to ask, if it isn't I apologize. I've been trying to get the Gimp brush manager up and running. I've installed Python and the brush manager but that's as far as I've gotten. Everything I've read leads me to believe that I access through: filters/python-fu/ brush manager. The problem is that I don't HAVE anything that says python-fu. I let Python install to where it wanted and I put the brush manager in the plugins folder. Where am I going astray? It's 2:30 a.m. and my mind is starting to go numb.

If you installed Python after installing GIMP, you need to reinstall GIMP in order for Python to be recognized.

Check out the Python link here:

I reinstalled Gimp, still not working. I guess I'll have to remove Gimp completely, registry entries and all. I really had it customized the way I wanted it. Before I saw your reply I suspected that I'd have to do this.

I've never had to do this, but can't you save the conf files that holds all your GIMP settings, as back-ups, and re-activate them after installation? You might want to look into that before you completely remove GIMP, etc. I believe its possible, I've just never done it.

you can just get and run a new installer, will overwrite the program files but not the preference and what else stored in the other gimp folder that in your user directory

all what you need to do first is install all the python libraries (not only python , there is a pack here in the registry) in their order (first python ....reload the PC...then the rest )

Then when reinstalling gimp take care to click the "CUSTOM" option in the installer and there chose to enable python

Why should one restart the system after installing Python?

Well maybe is not strictly needed
But doing that solved some failed attempt to install
(it was the only difference so i bet was that ).
