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 I went to the link you mentioned, which advised me: This plug-in has been superseded by the G'MIC plug-in for GIMP I have downloaded G'MIC and unzipped it, but it's not clear how to install it.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
