The heal-selection plugin is python and that will work whatever. It
could be that the binary resynthesizer plug-in is the wrong 'flavour'
32 bit and should be 64 bit maybe or something else.

root is not the correct owner for files in your gimp profile ~/.gimp-2.8/
phil should be in there as owner.

I think plug-ins should go in your Gimp profile. However if installed
from a package, they will end up in /user... Not a good idea to have
in both locations, AFAIK your Gimp profile takes precedence and that
has incorrect permissions.

One way for Ubuntu (is this the worst user distro in the world?)

Get rid of all the previous stuff.

open a terminal to get a root prompt: sudo -i (then password) 
apt-get install gimp-plugin registry


Unfortunately you get a whole load of other scripts and plugins, such
is the price.. but you do get heal-selection in Filters -> enhance
and you should see resynthesizer in Filters -> Map
