I use 680 (aka 777) but the quality of the drivers is the same.
First: don't take cupsys-driver-gimpprint from Sid, it's broken. Take
the Woody version, 4.1.7.

For what? gimp-print does the job with the current gs.

apt-get install kups cupsys-driver-gimpprint. Run kups and configure.

You are forced to use them if you _want_ gs (with stp/gimpprint
support). But I recomend to drop them and use CUPS instead.
