Recreating PS drop shadows?

I'm trying to create a shadow based on specs given to me by a PS user. The blend mode is supposed to be linear burn, the opacity is supposed to be 44%, the angle is supposed to be 135 degrees, the distance is supposed to be 20 px, the spread is supposed to be 0%, and the size is supposed to be 27 px. Thanks for any help you can give!

Have to confess I do not know PS drop shadow. Is this on small text, size 27 px ???

Needs recent Gimp 2.10 You could try Filters -> Light & Shadow -> Long Shadow.

Whatever it is you are applying the shadow to, duplicate the layer and if necessary make the layer canvas size for a bit of working room.

Settings initially as screenshot 1. Then opacity and linear-burn applied as layer modes. screenshot 2.

There is a setting there (Style) to fade out but nothing to taper if that is required. There are 3-rd party plug-ins to apply various effects.

You can disregard previous post. Nothing like what I imagined from the description but I should have expected that.

A bit of digging, no real correlation between PS and Gimp filters.

Settings to get the same in Gimp using the GEGL drop shadow.

Red is PS. Blue is Gimp. https://i.imgur.com/6bnr6MD.jpg a reasonable match (for that size)

Thank you!!! I have two other specifications for shadows. Would you mind figuring out those settings for me, too, please? I'll post the screenshots of the PS settings screen. I'd really appreciate it! Thank you!!!

Do not take these settings as written in stone...but should give you a starting point. Tried as best I can to get opacities close.

File is Gimp 2.10 .xcf.gz compressed - opens straight up in Gimp
