Sorry you're not having much joy so far.
I don't know that I can offer any specific advice - I do remember
suffering a similar problem to yours at first which did get resolved,
perhaps by following the instructions in the manual religiously, but now
I don't recall how. I do find the printed colours I get are a close
match to the monitor - as judged by eye - although I agree, that's only
an interim solution till there's proper colour management in Gimp.
However, what I would recommend is submitting a bug report to
The people there are very prompt in replying and helpful - I found, for
example, that I could not print on two of the better quality Epson
papers with my Epson Stylus Photo 2100; and within a few days received a
new PPD file that solved it.
Hope you have some success!

I have been experimenting with TurboPrint and have not been very impressed
with the results. It is still better than the stock gimpprint, but my test
image has a noticeable red-cast. Can you give some more details on your
results with TurboPrint?
If it would give me Windows-quality prints, I would gladly pay them twice what
they are asking, but so far it is really unusable for me :-(. I don't see
how they can expect decent color without having some kind of monitor profile
in the loop...
Any thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
