Uber N00B script problem...
OK I feel really stupid right now and I am tired of searching for the answer so here we go...

I need to run Gimp in batch mode (I run it from another Linux program) and what I need to do is really simple:
1- Open an image in EPS format (Encapsulated Postscript from a plot output).
2- Put a text on the image.
3- Save the image in JPEG format.

So, I was able using the Script-Fu console to open the file and save it in JPEG format, but my texting part do not work. Or the image is save without the text or I end up with a black square...

Please help me, I am starting to feel really stupid...

Here is the script I wrote so far:
(define (script-fu-text text size image savename)
  (gimp-context-set-foreground "black")
  (let* ((img (car (file-eps-load 1 image image)))
         (new_layer (car (gimp-text-fontname img -1 0 0 text 10 TRUE size PIXELS "Sans")))
         (gimp-image-add-layer img new_layer -1)
    (file-jpeg-save RUN-NONINTERACTIVE img new_layer savename savename 0.93 0 1 1 "" 0 1 0 0)
