Oh - sorry - I just saw this e-mail now.
Put th e;py file in a GIMP plug-ins folder
(on Linux it is /home/<user>/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins), for example,
Check a suitable folder in edit->preferences->folders->plug-ins

On Linux after putting the file on such a folder, you have to make it executable
(chmod a+x, <file> or right_click and preferences, mark as executable with
a graphical file manager). GIMP needs to be restarted to find the plug-in.
