If it prints OK via Open Office, there's probably nothing wrong with
the image.  I would be more likely to blame some disconnect in
communication between the GIMP and the printer.

In the long run it might pay to take a close look at the installed
print drivers, and any printer interface software that may be
installed.  But just for immediate results, I would try some
work-arounds.  Export the image as (plain vanilla) TIFF and/or BMP,

-- Check and see if the printer's user interface includes a command
to print photos.  If it does, print the TIFF and/or BMP from there
and see what happens.

-- If the printer does not have the ability to print image files
"all by itself,"  try using Irfanview to print the TIFF and/or BMP.


IMO Irfanview rocks - Microsoft's 'innovations' in image browsing &
viewing are weak imitations of Irfanview.

-- If that don't work, try printing the same TIFF or BMP on a whole
other computer and printer.  (If another printer is not available,
your local copy shop has one...)
