How to make tilable textures with GIMP?

Hi! I've been searching for a way to make tilable textures in GIMP. Is there some good way to do it? The particular issue I'm facing is variations in light on the edges when you offset an image like shown in the texturing tutorial https://www.twisted-strand.com/ut_tutorials/text_tut/index2.html

In the tutorial, the difference in lighting is removed via high pass filter and then fading high pass which makes the color is quite even across the whole image. I was checking some other tutorials but most involved Photoshop and had similar workflow. I couldn't find the equivalent in GIMP for eliminating noticable color differences apart from maybe using dodge and burn but it turned out to be very time consuming.
