Thanks, now it is working! I had to install the cupsys-bsd and the
cupsys-client packages. Now I can select my printers from gimp. But still
need a 710c driver; choosing a hp printer with the "closest number" (ie. 690
or 810c) is not the best option. I read that gimp can use ppd files, and I
can get a ppd file for my printer from linuxprinting.org, but I don't know
where to put it to make gimp recognize it. I'm working on this.
