That very often means that you haven't configured the printer type
in the gimp-print dialog. It doesn't get your printer type from
CUPS or whatever other spooler you might be running; it defaults
to postscript, which for most inkjet printers results in printing
out a lot of postscript source. (I wish it defaulted to "No printer"
or something, and perhaps popped up a dialog asking the user to
set the printer type ... if it ever gets straightened out which
project owns the gimp-print dialog, perhaps I'll try adding that
If you've already set gimp-print to the right printer type,
then I'm out of ideas and maybe someone with an HP can help.
What OS/distro are you running?
