Installing plug-ins and scripts:
You can download as many plugins or scripts you want from http://registry.gimp.org/ among many other places to enhance your functionality. Now from the Menu, go to ‘Edit > Preferences > Folders’, from there note down the location of the ‘Plug-ins’ and ‘Scripts’ folder. Then simply copy the Plug-ins or scripts you have just downloaded from the Internet there and restart GIMP.
Linux users are strongly recommended to install the ‘gimp-plugin-registry’ package. On a Debian-based system such as Ubuntu, this can be done by typing Sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry on the terminal.
