Hi Hedley,

Windows is *not* my primary OS, but I did get it to work with 2.6.1
under windows XP two days ago.

I installed python first then these packages:
pycairo-1.4.12-1.win32-py2.5.exe, pygobject-2.14.1-1.win32-py2.5.exe,
pygtk-2.12.1-2.win32-py2.5.exe, gimp-2.6.1-i686-setup.exe.  A reboot
(for luck), and it showed up in the plug-in browser after launching
gimp 2.6.1.

I placed the python script in C:\Documents and Settings\<my

Hopefully you can get it working based on the above but fear not: the
party is still going on - still plenty of time to get inside, dry
yourself off, and sidle up to the bar :)
