The former is where I'm trying to add the pattern.
No -s on this directory.
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 2005-11-01 07:57 .

I also attempted to add the file to the .gimp... directory but it still isn't showing up.  I can open the file in gimp and it seems to show up just fine.  I compared it to a good pattern and except for the dimensions it's equivalent as far as I can see. 

When I'm in the pattern screen, and click on a pattern, there is a short description of the pattern displayed, but I can't find any way to see that description when I'm editing a pattern in gimp.  Is it possible my converted jpeg image doesn't have that dispaly info in it and that's why it isn't showing up?

In "File|Preferences", what directories are listed as resource sources
for patterns?

IIRC, you can also put the pattern in ~/.gimp-2.2/patterns if you are
doing a per-user install (as opposed to system-wide).

Also, does the pattern(s) folder have an -s or no?  I forget what the
actual one does have, although IIRC you can set any one you want, in
theory.  I could be wrong though, I'm a bit rusty.

- Just my two cents
