I thought that I had removed Gimp 2.2.13 before I installed Gimp 2.3.18. I found the Ubuntu download for UFraw and followed that procedure. UFraw was installed as a plug-in but in Gimp 2.2.13 and not in 2.3.18 which was still there. I removed Gimp 2.2.13 and there was no plug-in. I am afraid that my Linux knowledge is insufficient to understand what you mean by a symlink and, even if I did, I have no idea how to go about producing one. Sounds like a very good idea, however.
