I believe a lot depends on which version of Gimp one uses so an
indication of the operating system could be helpful. I am unfortunate in
that I haven't yet got Gimp 2.4.1 installed as there is nothing yet for
non-techies using Ubuntu. However, according to the image in Akkana
Peck's book it looks the same as in earlier versions of Gimp as does the
page in Gimp 2.4 rc3.

I believe that printing in Gimp is via a plugin which on Linux systems
is Gutenprint.
