This is from the CDPlugin page:
(It turns out that, at least in GIMP 2.0, there's already a script-fu to do this! Xtns->Script-fu->Logos->Text Circle... Arclayer is probably still useful since it can bend any layer, not just text; but if all you want is an arced text label, you probably don't need arclayer.)
I have never used this however.... I am not sure how much controll or detail you need, but what I have often done in the past is create a solid color version of what I want in a vector program such as Sodipodi. Then open it in Gimp and use it as a template (select by color). I realise this isn't a perfect solution, but it works.

I am not sure of any other way to do it. Sorry,
