Is that about right?

    And I guess this only really works if you store the resources in an outside folder. That makes sense.

    Yes and no. What it does is to Copy the contents of the selected folders(which GIMP does not know about) into a folder that GIMP does know about and then tells GIMP to "refresh". When you uncheck a folder in GURM, it looks at the contents in the original folder and deletes the copy in the folder GIMP knows about and then refreshes.

    Yeah, that's what I meant in "Simplese". Basically, "making visible to GIMP" was simplese for "Copy the contents of the folder GURM is managing into a folder that GIMP is aware of".

    Thanks for clarifying!

    @Karro - you got it now!

    The whole exercise is because brushes, patterns, palettes, gradients, etc. all display in one big list and can't be categorized in gimp....

    BUT, the next version of gimp will have searchable tagging for everything, afaik, so if you spent the time tagging (for example) all brushes, you could filter the brush list by typing in the filter box that will be provided.

    Help! GURM won't go away! I placed in to my ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/ and deleted it recently, but it's still available under Filters -> GURM. Whats wrong?

    Thanks for this y'all. Especially jfrazierjr. I was about to become highly frustrated. Nearly as highly frustrated as I was when GIMP took 45 minutes (slight exaggeration... but only slight) to load. It works now. Whew.

    I got GURM installed and it worked fine for a few days but then it stopped working.
    When i press "OK" nothing happens the box does not close and the brushes do not load.
    I need it to manage my brushes. I have to many to handle any other way.
    Please help.
