HP DeskJet 5740, CUPS and The GIMP

Hi there,

I have recently acquired a HP DeskJet 5740 to replace an older printer
that died, and as linuxprinting.org reported this printer as fully
functional with the hpijs driver, I bought it. And the printer does work
very well indeed, apart from in one scenario that I have found.

I am printing to this printer from my laptop to the server where the
printer is physically attached via USB. It is CUPS all the way to handle

The problem I am having is that while I can dump a .png or a .jpg to the
printer, as well as using enscript to produce a .ps to print and all
that is working, I can not print from the GIMP at all. On the paper all
I get is a line and a half of plain text.

Has anyone managed to get this printer working fully in the GIMP?

Kind Regards,
