[Gimp-user] Gimp 2.9.2 and Nef files

GIMP 2.9.2 can open NEF files but unfortunately since the NEF format
is based on the TIFF format, GIMP ends up opening it as a tiff and
hence the thumbnail.

If you have dcraw in your path, then don't use autodetect, select NEF
from the format menu and then click on NEF.
It has been true since I began using Gimp that if I tried to open a NEF file,
UFRaw would be launched first.  For the life of me, I cannot remember how I
indicated to Gimp that I wanted to use UFRaw since that has been so long ago. 
Now I do not know how to invoke UFRaw for a NEF file within Gimp.  If I depend
on Gimp to open the NEF, every time I want to open a NEF file, I have to reset
the File Type from Automatically Detected to NEF.  That is a real pain.  By the
way, I am using Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
