Hi Mike -

Can you get the GIMP to run at all?  Here's what looks odd to me in your

1.  gimp-1.2.5 in /usr/src  This looks very odd, unless that is the
source tree for gimp-1.2.5.  If that's the case, then cd to that
directory, (/usr/src/gimp-1.2.5) and build and install the binary.  You
will find the instructions in a file named, oddly enough, INSTALL ;).
To summarize the instructions there, you first run ./configure, to build
the makefiles according to your system's capabilities; then make, to
compile the program, and finally, make install, to actually put the
binaries somwhere in your search path.  Note that you'll probably need
to be root to actually perform the install.

2.  If /home/Irish is your home directory, you were on the right track
in putting your script somewhere in that tree, but I think you should
have put it in /home/Irish/.gimp-1.2/scripts   Note the . before gimp. 
.gimp-1.2 is the root of your personalized gimp, and lets you add
plug-ins, scripts, patterns, brushes, etc that you can use without
needing root access.  

Anyway, try these suggestions, restart the GIMP, and you should see your
script somewhere in the menus, probably under Image/Script-fu/.....  
wherever it registered itself.

Good luck and good gimping!
