GIMP 2.8 Brush Dynamics Greyed Out and Uneditable

(I rushed this post together after Googling for a good hour the solution to this 'problem' and constantly coming up against those helpful  'aah, yes I've fixed it now' type forum entries that weren't very forthcoming with the details)

If you’ve installed GIMP 2.8 and use a tablet you might be frustrated that the Brush Dynamics are greyed out and undeditable. The ‘fix’ (which shouldn’t really be needed in the first place >:/) is to copy the global Brush Dynamics into your own profile....

ie: copy all the contents of....
C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\dynamics
to (the empty?)

and then make sure it’s checked in GIMP’s


they should now all be available to edit


 *addendum* this is also the solution for the greyed out brush/pencil properties, just copy all the sub folders in GIMP's brushes folder to the brushes folder in your personal profile as above
