  1. The above works fine for me (Ubuntu, Jaunty Jackelope) although I get the following in the terminal window

    /usr/local/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/print: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    (gimp:9766): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp: wire_read(): error

    and I can’t run GIMP from my regular applications menu
