Thanks very much for the pointer.  I went to the link you mentioned,
which advised me:

        This plug-in has been superseded by the G'MIC plug-in for GIMP

I have downloaded G'MIC and unzipped it, but it's not clear how to
install it.  I would guess that it should simply be copied
to /usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins, but this procedure doesn't seem to be
documented anywhere.  Or maybe it's better to copy it to
$HOME/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins .  Or maybe something else.  

The most promising looking tool, gimp-plugin-mgr, produces an error:

        $ gimp-plugin-mgr --install gmic_gimp
        gimp-plugin-mgr: can't read /etc/gimp/plugins.d/gmic_gimp.conf

It's a good idea to check before charging ahead.

BTW: How carefully are the plugins in the Gimp Plugin Registry checked
for trojans, etc?

Thanks - jon
