Nothing seems to actually be downloading.
Well, one of my attempts got me something with a .gbr extension, but
putting it in my gimp2.8 brush folder doesn't seem to have made any
I click on the links at deviantart and nothing seems to happen.
I suppose there is some way to search for brushes on torrents so I can use
transmission, but I don't know how to do that, either.
The instructions at Lifehacker say "just search."
How do you search in transmission? I just know how to start it from a seed;
a seed I download in the usual manner.
I disabled noscript in Firefox and when that didn't help I installed and
tried Chromium. No Joy.
Am I cursed?
