 I'm totally doomed xD Well thanks for the help anyways^^
An additional possibility is a local computer shop may have ability 
to recover corrupt files. But it will cost something.

 Greetings all;
 
 I have a BW Brother HL-2140 printer, that I normally use with a
  color computer, all setup and working in cups, in addition to
  several different profiles for an Epson NX515 combo printer that
  I bought to replace my old Epson C82 when the printhead in it
  finally expired.
 
 Everytime I run gimp to print something, I am reminded that its
  printer database is totally independent of the cups database. 
  And for some reason, tossing a gimp loaded .jpg at the NX515 only
  gets me about 80 pages of blank paper.  Or a printer jam, this
  NX515 is a POS compared to the old C82.
 
 So my question is: Where do I put the BR2140.ppd that cups uses so
  that the gutenprint plug-in can also find it?  The regular print
  dialog has no knowledge of this printer, and nowhere near enough
  controls to be usable.
 
 My wife, who needs about 8 pages of a Contata Finale piece printed
  on regular paper so they'll lay flat on the piano while she plays
  them, is checking to see if I've got this done yet about every
  station break on the tv.  And my sanity, if I ever had any, is
  receding.   Help!
 
 Thanks.
 
 PS,  since no one has touched this one with a single character of
  reply,  I found a workaround.  goto print, select the Brother from
  the printer listing (after its setup with the new menu that's in
  there someplace), then do a print preview which does display it in
  portrait, click on the full width button on the menubar, then
  click on the print button on the preview screen. It is then
  printed portrait, full sized.  Any other method prints it
  landscape, slightly smaller in scale and still with some of the
  bottom clipped off.
 
 I feel like I'm playing connect the dots here folks.  The excedrin
  headache number is approaching overflow status...
 
If your running openSUSE Linux you can put the ppd into /etc/cups/ppd/ 
. I assume other distros also put it there. Also you can up the cups 
web interface to set up the printer. The PPD will still wind up in 
/etc/cups/ppd. make sure its the right ppd for your printer.

 Yes, I see the right one I copied in there yesterday, along with
  about every case variation of cups-pdf.ppd and a bunch of
  ppd.bak's, all gone now.
 
 I've no idea why I have to jump thgrough so many hoops to get the
  correct size  orientation when printing from cups though.
 
 And it would also be very very nice if gimp used the same drivers,
  sadly, no.
 
 Thank you very much.
 
What version of GIMP do you have? I just went into mine and called up 
a .jpg, changed its size selected print and my printer (Xerox Color 
Phaser 6120) and it printed no set issue.

I have GIMP 2.6.7 from openSUSE repos'
