That's my preferred way of installing it. BTW: Gtk-0.7 is out, and has
fixed a bug that causes some (gimp-perl-)widgets to break.

the program named "Perl-Fu" is no longer distributed with the Gimp (maybe
gimp-2.0 will have it). However:

This means that your gimp has working perl support.

I do not know what "open" means, but the script must be executable and
should be put in a plug-in directory. Alos make sure you have a bang-path
(#!/usr/bin/perl or something) in the script.

If you have the "Perl-Server" menu then it must be installed somewhere.
