RE: Gimp 2.8 Text along Path
One of the problems here is that there are not many MAC users around and none so-far responding.

Not being a MAC user, these are just my thoughts.

Never a good idea to duplicate scripts and plugins in different locations. If one location is not working don't leave the plugin there, remove it, even if just for the sake of tidiness.
Searching around there is lots of advice such as here:
and others would indicate that Contents > Resources > lib > gimp > 2.0 > plug-ins. is a good location.

Use a different location altogether. This is good for win/linux and one report from a MAC user who added a folder under "Documents"
You can have any location provided you tell Gimp where it is.
Menu Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> plug-ins
Are the locations for plugins that you used the same as those listed in your preferences.
Same rules as anything else, avoid spaces in folder/file names like the plague.

looking here gives
"Since each entity has its own permission, an example of a complete permission set could look like "-rwxrw-r--"
You might have to apply chmod 777 rather than 755

Does the plugin work at all?
Have you installed any other plugins that work? If yes, then maybe the plugin does not work in a MAC.

Finally - as Ofnuts said his plugins appear under a sub-menu 'tools', the smooth-path plugin is from someone else.

RE: Gimp 2.8 Text along Path
Okay. Just for giggles I completely uninstalled gimp and deleted all the folders related to it. I then installed 2.8. Under Filters, Python-Fu was there and has only the Console option. Was there supposed to be anything else? Filters/Render/Clouds/Fog was not there. The I installed 2.8.2 and the Python-Fu folder was gone.

How do I get my python support back?

I also tried putting the plug-ins in different folder and pointed to the folder in preferences. That didn't help.

Any help you can give is appreciated. I may just have to go back to 2.6. Text along path works just fine in that version.
