It has been true since I began using Gimp that if I tried to open a NEF file,
UFRaw would be launched first. For the life of me, I cannot remember how I
indicated to Gimp that I wanted to use UFRaw since that has been so long ago.
Now I do not know how to invoke UFRaw for a NEF file within Gimp. If I depend
on Gimp to open the NEF, every time I want to open a NEF file, I have to reset
the File Type from Automatically Detected to NEF. That is a real pain. By the
way, I am using Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
