I have been forced to switch computers abruptly and have just upgraded to version 2.8. I was working on re-installing all of my scripts and plug-ins and none of them are showing up at all. I've done some digging in this forum and apparently this is a common problem but nothing I've tried has fixed the problem. :/
I went to Edit>Preferences and verified that it was looking in the right folders and that all my .scm are in scripts and .py are in plug-ins. Even after rebooting my computer none of the scripts or plug-ins are showing up anywhere. I'm not programming savvy at all, so I'm lost as to what to do now.
I'm running on a Windows 7/XP with GIMP 2.8 & Python 2.6.6. if that helps.
