Can't Print within Gimp

Hi there --

I would like to be able to print an image that I have saved, but when I go to File in the menu bar, there is no print option. How do I go about adding the print option, I'm guessing there's something that needs to be done with the print plugin, to file or whatever menu it is supposed to be on? Thanks.

The print plugin can be found here:

or write the file as a .ps file (postscript) en print it with a postscript viewer like KGhostview.
