NuFRaw plugin Windws / linux 64 bit.
If you regularly use RAW images with Gimp then you are better off with one of the 'active' applications, Darktable or Rawtherapee, which are frequently updated.

I do find these have more features than I require and so I fall back to the Gimp uFRaw plugin.  This is old and newer RAW formats will not be supported. All you can do is try and see. 

For Windows Users.

I have tried this in Win10 / Gimp 2.10.24 and it works. Unzip and put the whole nufraw folder in C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins

A quick animation in action:

For linux users. 

(Edit: For 'buntu 20.04 / Mint 20 users. This plugin is not going to work, there are dependencies no longer included in these newer versions - ok for ubuntu 18.04 / Mint 19)

Check in your distro repo for a version that works with Gimp 2.10 (not always guaranteed) This is my compile which should work in ubuntu / mint etc. Unzip put in ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/ make sure it is executable.
This plugin has a side effect. Stops Gimp loading SVG images, so keep it non-executable until required.

After installation, check that it shows bottom of Edit -> Preferences -> Image Import & Export and is selected.  
The usual guarantee, there is none. If it does not work for you, then I recommend trying RawTherapee.
big advantage of NuFraw is that it is WAY faster to import an image in GIMP than Darktable or RT or LZ, as nuFraw (uFraw) is light and opens like in 1 second with the image already inside
