So, I checkded all my GIMP menus and found nothing about Lens Fun, for example. 
Nothing about G’MIC, either, so I must be doing something wrong.

I read somewhere that it was available, I went to the Ubuntu software center,
and it was there.  I uninstalled the version of GIMP I had installed, and
installed the new version.  I just checked the software center again and
confirmed that the GIMP I have installed is version 10.10.10, stable, updated

I installed from PPAs to follow 2.9 development versions before 2.10 was
available.  My version seems to be working fine, I just seek to try out some of
the available plugins.  What details do you need in order to point me to the
items about which I inquire?  If G’MIC and GimpLensFun are not showing in my
GIMP, am I missing them (as in are they there, I am just not looking in the
right location), or need I get/install them.  That is my question.

You don’t say, but, I am guessing that, since I have not created any scripts,
and becaused Installed Gimp scripts and plugins are run via the Gimp menu
structure **not** started on their own or from those terminals, then this
business of setting scripts to execute does not apply to what I am trying to
accomplish.  Is that correct?

I thank you for continuing to reply to this thread.  Let me know what additional
information I can offer so that you can point me in the right direction.
