Description:

GimpResourcesThumbnailer is a thumbnail service for KDE. It can be used in any KDE application that supports the thumbnail kioslave, like dolphin or digiKam. You can preview all of your Gimp resources like brushes and patterns, to easily manage them into folders, without the need to open Gimp.

The following resource types are supported:
* Gimp-Brushes (.gbr, .ghi, .vbr)
* Gimp-Patterns (.pat)
* Gimp-Palettes (.gpl)
* Gimp-Gradients (.ggr)
* Adobe Photoshop Brushes (.abr (v6))

Note: I moved the code to GitHub, so that it is easier for me to share the code:

Since you are an arch linux user, why don't you provide this on AUR too? And thanx for your work, it's really useful.

Simply because I don't have much time anymore for such things :-(

I added a PKGBUILD file once to the git repository, but even this is too old now I guess.

This is why I moved the code to github, so I don't have to provide a tar.gz here every time I do a little bit of bugfixing.

Really handy tool for someone who uses extensively Gimp, although the name is a bit long and the Camel notation doesn't it make easier to create a package for it.
The old name was a bit shorter, but doesn't fit anymore.
Anyway..., thank you.

Yeah the name is not the best, but I can not think of a better one at the moment. Do you have a suggestion?

How about Brushnails?

It is not only displaying brushes, but also palettes, gradients and patterns...

Great idea, I'll try this ASAP. I always zoom the screen to the size of the brushes window in GIMP, but with the ATI card in my laptop (and the consequential suckage of compositing on it), this isn't practical at all. Thanks for your work on this.

Hope it is working for you!
The only thing that will not be displayed at the moment are .abr (Photoshop Brushes) and .vbr (preset Gimp Brushes).

ABR will not be supported by this plugin, since it is no Gimp Brush at all.

VBR is a little bit difficult. I need to write a generator for it so it can be displayed, because I don't want to link against Gimp libraries. It should work without having Gimp installed, so the generator is a must-have.
I will add it later...

Ok ABR (v6) is now supported, too.
Since Photoshop brushes are mostly brush packs, I can only display the first brush, similar to the animated Gimp brushes.
