[Gimp-user] Precompiled GIMP on macOS does not recognize plugins

Hello all,

I am attempting to install the Resynthesizer plugin for GIMP on macOS

I installed GIMP 2.8.22 using Homebrew Cask
and downloaded the Resynthesizer plugin version 1.0 from

According to Preferences > Folders, the following directories are used
for plug-ins:

  /Users/raxod502/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/plug-ins

The contents of the former are:

  Permissions Size User     Date Modified Name
  .rw-r--r--@ 6.6k raxod502 13 Apr  2011  plugin-heal-selection.py
  .rw-r--r--@ 3.2k raxod502 13 Apr  2011  plugin-heal-transparency.py
  .rw-r--r--@  17k raxod502 13 Apr  2011  plugin-map-style.py
  .rw-r--r--@ 7.7k raxod502 13 Apr  2011  plugin-render-texture.py
  .rw-r--r--@ 3.3k raxod502 13 Apr  2011  plugin-resynth-enlarge.py
  .rw-r--r--@ 3.6k raxod502 15 Apr  2011  plugin-resynth-fill-pattern.py
  .rw-r--r--@ 3.3k raxod502 13 Apr  2011  plugin-resynth-sharpen.py
  .rw-r--r--@ 6.0k raxod502 13 Apr  2011  plugin-uncrop.py
  .rwxr-xr-x@  62k raxod502 15 Apr  2011  resynthesizer
  .rwxr-xr-x@  53k raxod502 15 Apr  2011  resynthesizer-gui

On restarting GIMP, I believe there should be a menu entry Filter >
Enhance > Heal selection (among others), but there is no such item.
Furthermore, I get no results from Help > Plug-In Browser when
searching for either "heal" or "resynthesizer".

Have I misunderstood how to install plugins? Is there some kind of
compilation step? Any way I can debug the situation?

Best regards,
Radon Rosborough
