Configurable Max/min Slider Values?

This thread is about the same thing all of these links are about: • https://www.gimpusers.com/forums/gimp-user/15290-i-m-finding-it-hard-to-work-with-brush-sizes-in-2-8https://www.gimpusers.com/forums/gimp-user/16261-is-it-possible-to-set-the-max-brush-pen-slider-valueshttps://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=689731 (feature request; was closed due to inactivity)

90% of the brush size slider comprises a size range I rarely use, while the other 10% is what I actually use. GIMP supports dragging the mouse past the bounds of the slider to get even greater brush sizes, so having a configurable max size would not cripple anyone's workflow. The plugin provided in the second thread is no longer available because the registry is gone, but, if you grab it from the link below it doesn't work, anyway. • https://gimper.net/resources/brendans-gimp-interface-improvement.56/

In the link below, there are no developer provided instructions to install this plugin on Windows, but in the comments, user "adam" wrote about them. And it doesn't work. The plugin doesn't show up under "Tools". • https://brendanscott.wordpress.com/2013/08/17/automatic-perspective-lines-in-gimp/ The only workaround that existed doesn't work. Tested on Windows 10 Pro 1909 10.0.18363.900 64-bit.

This seems to have been an issue for at least 7 years. I understand the dev team is underfunded and is probably short on time, but this looks like a relatively easy issue that's been long overlooked.

I made this thread in order to know whether a user can easily change the brush slider limit or not. If not, I'd like to know where I can request this feature.

The plugin is easily fixed by adding the python "shebang" #!/usr/bin/env python to the start of the plugin.

Fixed and attached, remember to unzip it.

The preset brush size steps can be changed in line 43 (If a Windows user use a proper text editor, such as notepad++

Example it is now

BASE_BRUSH_SIZES = [10, 20, 50, 100, 300]

As far as I know, 'shebangs' are a Unix only feature.

Nope. Needed by the Windows Gimp python interpreter.

Very tedious using the menu, assign a keyboard shortcut

I can just get it into 1 minute example https://i.imgur.com/Pvm3z7r.mp4
