# Why don't scripts work

Hi,

For some reason I can not install scripts. I put them in the following locations:
C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\scripts
C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts
C:\Users\Roy\Documents\gegl-0.0\scripts

None of which results in any new options appearing. What am I doing wrong? Can it be that the scm files are outdated - I got these two from this very site:
- DRI_from_3_images.scm

Regards,
Roy

PS. I am working with 2.6.11

### Re: Why don't scripts work

First one: not good.
Second one is oke. But you have to restart Gimp to make the script appear somewhere in the menus.
Third one: not good

Putting scripts in your second option means everybody will find that script in his/her menu's.

Other option is to put your script into: C:\Users\Roy\Documents\.Gimp-2.6\scripts. Script is now only available to you.

After installing you will find the scripts in the filter tab.

### By the way

If you put the scripts in the single user location (suggested by E. Sullock Enzlin) C:\Users\Roy\Documents\.Gimp-2.6\scripts you need to remove the same scripts from the global location at C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts or they will conflict with one another and cause you more grief.

### Thanks

Hi,

Yes. The second options works indeed. I tried it with one of the scripts and expected it to show up in Filter/Enhance as the code says, but it ended up in the translated (to dutch) menu: Filters/Versterken. I did not look good enough until you convinced it had to work.

Thank you!

Regards,
Roy
