I would like to install the Gutenprint plugin for GIMP. The documentation shows a screenshot

Gimp Gutenprint Plugin Screenshot

I downloaded the source code of Gutenprint 5.3 and build it, all without errors.

I installed a printer in CUPS and the driver seems as it should be and it was printing.

But when I open GIMP 2.8 and open File/Print the dialog is exactly the CUPS dialog. It's nothing like the screenshot.

The documentation does not say anything about how to activate or access the Gimp plugin. I do not know anything about Gimp plugins. Maybe I am missing something obvious.

I am using Xubuntu 18.04, but this should be also valid for other versions.

Rather than build the package from source code, I suggest that you open a terminal and do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gimp-gutenprint

Several dependencies will also be installed.

Once completed, a new selection will be available in Gimp: File > Print with Gutenprint...
