It might be that your GIMP is including an old gimp-print plug-in from
4.2, but the larger package which includes all the printer drivers
is Gutenprint. A little checking with dpkg -S, dpkg -L and aptitude
search might solve that mystery if you're on Ubuntu as your signature
suggests. (I'd check here for you, but I have gutenprint built from
source and have probably overwritten some of the original files.)
I think they're compatible (must be, if the distro installs them
that way) but the experts who would know for sure aren't here;
they're on the gimp-print/gutenprint devel list.
They'd also be the ones who would know whether or not a particular
printer model is supported. Glance at the archives first (at that same
url) to see if anyone has talked about your printer model recently.
