Setting up printing through the gimp


I have printed through the gimp before without a problem, I don't know why it's different this time. No printers are detected when you go to print but there is the option to add them. When I try to do this it ask me to name the printer, pick a driver, then it ask for "command". How do I find out what to put for command? I've tried leaving it as lp but nothing arrives at the printer.

Can anyone help? Our printer is set up to run through cups.

Try adding a printer in theGimp - lpr-cups and give it a whirl. It should go to the default printer.
