Saving Metadata in Gimp

Hi All
First time on this Forum!!
I have Gimp 2.8.4 on my Linux PCLOS 2013 system.
I'm trying to save Metadata to my photos and I can edit-in what I want under 'File>Properties'.
BUT no matter what I do it DOES NOT save what I enter!!
Am I doing something wrong?
I see mention of 'libexif' being needed - if this is so how do I add it??
My formats are jpg and png.
Thanks for any help

I looked into this a couple of weeks ago. So far as I can tell, you can't edit the meta data in gimp (happy for someone to prove me wrong). I have a script which will *delete* the metadata which I can post if you want it :)
There are other apps about which can edit jpg metadata though.
