I followed the directions exactly, and I now have an executable
file in /plug-ins that reads about like the one posted. But when I
opened a .png file in GIMP, and then went to save it, it only
wanted to save in .xcf format, whether I selected save or save as.
I must be missing something. What now, please?

It is not save, nor export. It is a new menu entry, "save/export

I do not have that entry. I only have save, save as, save a copy,
and overwrite filename.png.

Sure you grabbed the right file.... as in the python script? It works
here as described.

I downloaded the file from one of the original messages as it appeared
in my browser, and placed it in Kate with the filename
gimp_plug-in_file and I did a diff between that and the file that I downloaded iaw the directions, as I
said. diff reports that the files are identical. I also restarted the
computer from a warm start and rebooted the system and tried the whole
thing again. No change.


OK, if you open a terminal and start gimp from there, any error
messages appearing?
