Can't seem to install plugins

I tried to install the plugin
pandora-combine-0.9.3.scm

I put it in my personal .gimp-2.6/scripts directory, which is what I thought I was supposed to do. I then did Filters>Script-Fu>Refresh Scripts. I get the message

Plug-in "script-fu"
(/usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/script-fu)
attempted to register the menu item "/Filters/Combine" for procedure "script-fu-pandora-combine".
The menu label given in gimp_install_procedure() already contained a path. To make this work, pass just the menu's label to gimp_install_procedure().

I then moved it to the .gimp-2.6/plug-ins directory and ran the rfresh command. I didn't get an error message, but I haven't been able to find it in gimp.

What am I doing wrong? How can I get pandora to work?

I have a similar problem finding an exposure blend plugin i put in plu-ins.

In regards to your error:

Plug-in "script-fu"
(/usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/script-fu)
attempted to register the menu item "/Filters/Combine" for procedure "script-fu-pandora-combine".
The menu label given in gimp_install_procedure() already contained a path. To make this work, pass just the menu's label to gimp_install_procedure().

This line stands out:

(/usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/script-fu) This is saying a plug-in located in "this" folder is attempting to register the same menu item for "/Filters/Combine".

You could check using grep at terminal:

grep -niR /Filters/Combine /usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/

When I ran this on my own machine, two plug-ins were matches: "depth-merge" and "film".

I then downloaded and opened pandora-combine-0.9.3.scm with gedit and changed every instance of

script-fu-pandora-combine

to

script-fu-my-combine

Before I made those procedure changes, the script did not even register with GIMP or throw errors. It shows up in Filters/Combine as "Arrange as Panorama".
