Install texture plugin

Anyone know how to install a texture plugin in blender 2.6x ? It used to be in the texture panel under type… then plugin. I read somewhere that it is now in the file/preferences and then choose the plugin there… but it only allows py files and not .so mac texture plugins. Wasted about 2 hours trying to figure it out… I just want to make a burlap teddy bear… come on! Any help would be appreciated.

Texture plugins do not work in 2.6x
