1) check that you have files in your {gimp installation 
directory}/2.0/plug-ins/ and {gimp installation directory}/2.0/scripts/ 
directories (in Linux they are in /usr/lib/gimp and /usr/share/gimp 
respectively, in Windows, somewhere under c:\Program Files\gimp)  
(likely, otherwise you wouldn't be able to load/saves files). You should 
have about 200 files in the plugins directory.

2) erase the pluginrc and menurc files in your .gimp-2.6 directory 
(~/.gimp-2.6/pluginrc in Linux, c:\Documents en 
Settings\{your_id}\.gimp-2.6\pluginrc in WinXP and somewhere equivalent 
in Vista/W7) and restart Gimp, they should be rebuilt. In a normal gimp 
installation, pluginrc is several thousands lines and lists close to 200 
plugins, menurc is around  a thousand lines.
